Illustrator and craft blogger Rachel Basinger teaches you how to make your own 3-D Antiprism sculptures. Courtesy of Guardian News & Media Ltd.
Materials: four straws, scissors, and some bakers twine (available online here).
Step 1: Cut your straws into thirds. Take three pieces of your straw and thread them on to your string.
Step 2: Shape them into a triangle and tie a knot.
Step 3: Add two more pieces of straw to create a second triangle and tie.
Step 4: Repeat Step 3 until you have just one piece of straw left.
Step 5: Add on the final piece of straw and tie it to the short end.
Step 6: This is how your Antiprism should now look.
Step 7: Take a piece of string and tie it through the remaining end.
Step 8: Tie the string together so you can hang you Antiprism. You’re done!
