Step 1

Begin by cutting the head off a headpin: Using Cutter Pliers, place the head between the jaw of the pliers and pull down on the pin. This will ensure you save the maximum length of pin to work with.

Now using Round Nose Pliers, hold the pin approx. 1cm from the end and bend it at a ninety degree angle.

Still with the round nose pliers, grip the end of this 1cm section and turn a loop.
