As part of YouTube’s Geek Week this week, check out this Game of Thrones’ Hand of the King Pin video tutorial created by YouTube user NerdyCraftsies. You can watch the full tutorial here below.
Watching the 13-minute video was quite fun and almost made me believe that I, too, could make my own pin as seen on HBO’s Game Of Thrones, especially since you don’t need many items to do this one yourself.

But, I can honestly say that from my perspective, that if you have even the smallest artist ability, you will be able to follow this instructional and make your own, which really is more fun and meaningful anyhow.
