Pin to Mesh works by using the UV map to determine how the image or texture should be applied to the mesh. Each vertex on the mesh is "pinned" to a corresponding point on the UV, which allows the a mesh to conform to the shape of another mesh.

Add a Pin to Mesh Component

In the Hierarchy panel, select an object and locate its components in the Inspector panel. Click + Add component, go to 3D, and then select Pin to Mesh.
