How to Make – Paper Plate Polyhedron

I made these paper plate polyhedron’s for Oscar’s Lego Party. I had heaps of comments about them and lots of people asking how I made them.  They were quite easy to make.

I bought the coloured paper plates online at Pink Frosting and found a step by step guide on how to make them on Family Fun.

What you will need

  • 20 paper plates (I used small paper plates)
  • Stapler

How to make it

1. Fold the plates into triangles as shown.

2. Staple two plates together with three staples. Attach three more plates to make a pentagon, then repeat to make a second pentagon. Set both aside.

3. Staple the 10 remaining plates together into a long chain.

5.  Staple the ends of the chain together to form a ring, then staple the two pentagons to the top and bottom of the ring.

How Effective!
