In this instructable i'll be showing you how to make your very own mockingjay pin!It's super simple and quite easy,and by the way this is the first set of instructions on the internet on how to make one of these.The things you need are.

     -a block of bass wood
     -copper wire
     -a knife
     -a dremal
     -gold spray paint
     -a DS game case or other plastic of your choice
     -a small nail 
     -tin clippers
     -super glue
     -the back of a pin that you wear
    In preparation of the soon to come movie I started to search the web to find how to make a mockingjay pin and all that came up were pictures and print outs so I made my own and decided to share it with everybody.  :D

         P.S. Dont be afraid to post pictures of the pin you make if you make one!

Step 1: The bird

The first thing were going to make is the bird in the center of the pin.Start off by spliting the block of wood to as thick as you want it.(photo1) Then take a print out cut out the bird and trace on to the wood(photo 2-4) Now get your dremel ready and cut out the bird shape.(photo 5) What I did next which is optional is taped the picture of the actual bird to my cutout and used the detail bit,a hand knife and a sander bit to make the wings look separate and to make the head look better.(photo 6-7)
