Enhance Halloween Props - Rats

Step 2: Tool Construction

Take the dowel/wooden spool and cut it to the appropriate length - it should be about as long as your hand is wide, plus a little bit.
Proceed with CAUTION:
On one end, embed the point of the needle into the wood. Try to centre it, and then insert it as deep as you can.
If possible, and you have a small enough drill but, make a little hole first so that the dowel doesn't split. I just used a pair of pliers and pushed it into the wood.
Look at the eye of the needle. Take the cutters/pliers and cut the end of the needle off about halfway through the eye. This will leave you with two prongs.
