with the hammer flatten the cap on the piece of flat wood, before flatten the edges and after the middle, one side and after the other.
(don't do it too fast or the cap will brake open)

Step 3: REMOVE PLASTIC FROM CAP

Step 4: MAKE HOLES

with the star screwdriver and the hammer make some holes in the cap, colored face up.
then do smaller hole (beat less with the hammer) all around the edges (so they will get bend a little)

Step 5: BEND EDGES

decorate the caps with the wire, insert it from one hole to the other (thread it 2 or 3 times), close it in the behind of the cap, and flatten it (it wont touch your face cause the cap is convex)
