Yikes, that is a big word in the title of this post and if it has you confused, a Icosahedron is a 20 sided geometric solid. Nothing too confusing about that!
They are super easy to make and look great as decorative accents.
You will need.
- My free icosahedron template
- Card stock
- Craft knife
- Double sided tape
- Pens or paint to decorate
Then the fun really starts, time to decorate.
I took two approaches to decorating. Firstly painting once the icosaheron was constructed. The second approach was a lot easier – painting the back of the template once it was cut and scored but before it was folded
I made little ones which were printed on card stock and decorated using watercolor and acrylic paints. Not surprises when it come to my color choices!
And a bigger one which was made using watercolor paper
They look fabulous just jumbled up on a plain wooden tray but would look equally great in a large glass jar. A free decorative accent!
