A fun paper craft, a painless lesson in symmetry and mathematics, an easy way to introduce a pop of color, and an excuse to say the word dodecahedron. What's not to love about this DIY garland comprised of Platonic solids.
Named after the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, Platonic solids are regular 3-D figures, in which all the edges are of equal length, all the angles of equal measure, and all faces are congruent shapes.
Inspired by the noticeable polyhedral trend taking place in the design world, the ever-talented Kate from Mini Eco fashioned this straightforward and fetching paper craft employing this especially eye-pleasing form.
