DIY Gravity Falls 3D Pyramid Bill Cipher Made Out of Pencils! How-To Tutorial

Hi guys! This is Arca. More than a year has passed since the show Gravity Falls ended. It was an amazing show that had a mystery element to it. The main bad-guy was an Illuminati-shaped demon by the name of Bill Cipher. 

Today I will be providing a tutorial on how to make your own Bill Cipher using pencils, bendy straws, and paper. It will be a three dimensional pyramid.

Materials Needed:
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Black construction paper
  • 4 Bendy Straws
  • White Paper
  • 6 unsharpened Pencils of the same size
  • A black marker
  • A lot of Scotch tape
  • A pen cap 
  • Scissors

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1:  Form a pyramid using the pencils and tape it all together, tying it with tape at the intersections. It may take a few tries to get the angles right. It will have a triangle base with three pencils coming out of each corner and meeting at a center point ahead. 

Step 2: Trace the bottom triangle onto a yellow sheet of paper. Don't worry if the sides aren't perfectly straight, there can be some extra space and just be sure to try to cut them straight. 
Also poke two holes in the triangle that are next to each other. you will later put straws through them. Cut the triangle out.

Step 3: Tape on the triangle to the bottom face. Use tape at the edges on both sides to keep it stable. Poke two bendy straws through the holes you created previously. Bend them at the bottom. These will be his feet. Make them meet at the back pencil by taping them on. 

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 for one of the side faces. Poke a hole through the center for one of his arms. Draw several lines to represent bricks on the pyramid. The lines should stop halfway through.
Tape on the side and make the straw's end taped onto a pencil on the opposite side.

Step 5: Repeat step  for the other side of the pyramid, making sure to bend the straws for his arms.

Step 6: Wrap black paper around a pen cap and tape it to a circle-shaped part of black paper.

Step 7: Tape the hat to the top corner.

Step 8: Trace another triangle for his face and cut it out. Draw the bricks and his bow tie. Cut out an eye from a white sheet of paper. Glue or tape it on and draw eyelashes around it and a thin black pupil. 

Step 9: Tape the face onto the rest of it. You may have to cut off some of the top corner too make it fit.

It ends up looking pretty cool! You can hang him up around your room or hide him around the house and have a contest to see who can find him.
