  • Step 1

    Form a ring of 6 speks. Wrap your chain of speks around 3 sides of the ring to create an irregular hexagon. Fill in the hole and repeat 80 times (it's meditative and doesn't take too long, promise).


  • Step 2

    Attach 3 hexagons around another, so they align (not interlock). Fold the 3 outside in, to form a mini pyramid. Repeat 20 times!

  • Step 3

    Grab 5 mini pyramids and attach them together in a ring. Be sure that the interlocking and aligned edges of each mini pyramid line up with the next!

  • Step 4

    Add another 5 mini pyramids to the top of each in the ring. Make sure those edges match!

  • Step 5

    Grab another 5, you know what you're doing by now but we'll explain it anyway! Attach 5 more mini pyramids. Bring the gap between the last layer and start to enclose the shape.

  • Step 6

    Make a ring from the last 5 mini pyramids and attach it on top of your build - or add them one by one, you do you!

  • Step 7

    Attach 3 speks to each of your shapes point'n corners to finish the build! NICE!

  • The End.
