How did he make these thorns?

I’m following a tutorial to create a crown of thorns that I saw on another forum and I can’t get past this stage of modeling the thorns. How exactly did he do it? I’ve tried deleting the faces and extruding the edge loop around them, I’ve tried adding a hexagonal circle with snap during transform, but I never get success. Can someone out there help me?
thanks in advance

Looks like he extruded a group of four faces twice, then pulled them together to form the tip!

Along with what @ChrisCarver said…use the Loop Tools add-on and after deleting the faces, right-click and select Loop Tools > Circle…
