So, I went to a coin store where they had a big bucket of international coins, as well as tokens, things people thought were coins, but aren't, etc. And I came across a coin (I think from greece) with a hole in a middle.
   Jackpot!  Grin I've been in love with the idea of coins braided into my hair for ages. So I decided to try.
  It took me about 5 tries to get it in right, originally using clips, then trying thread, then just wood glue (useful, but eventually comes out), then I tried a small rubber band.

Stays in perfectly! But its ugly. So, I douse the loose ends in wood glue, wrap some purple embroidery thread around it, add more glue, then knot it tightly. Then to cover up the not-so-perfectly braided hair, I wrapped yellow thread up above that.

The end result?

Yay! ^_^
I swear it looks much more smooth IRL. The photo doesn't do it justice.

Drop the Yarn and no one gets hurt!
