With just a few supplies you can show off your team spirit.

 

Supplies Needed

 

Now follow the steps below!

First take a 4 inch piece of wire and wrap it through the hole of your crystal spike 3 times.

Wrap the short piece of wire around the longer piece of wire 3 to 4 times. Cut off any excess wire on the short piece leaving just a long piece of wire.

Use your round nose pliers to make a loop. Secure the loop by wrapping your wire down to the crystal and then back up to your loop.

Trim any excess wire and tuck your end into the loop.

Your crystal spike should look like this when finished.
