Candle wax granules in assorted colors
one of the long pieces of wire in half and wrap it around
the lid of the jar. Tightly twist it at the lip to keep
it in place. Straighten one end of the wire piece up and
the other end down. Repeat process with the remaining three
wires so that they are evenly positioned around the jar.
You will have a jar with four pieces of wire standing straight
up and four wires straight down.
On the bottom strands,
create loops with the needle-nose pliers and add beads (if
desired). Then connect them one at a time up to the rim
of the jar by bending the wires together. For the top strands,
bend one of them 1 inch to make a loop for hanging. Gather
all the wires and then tie them together by tightly wrapping
the 3-inch piece of wire around them. Use needle-nose pliers
to make decorative loops with the excess wire on the top.
Add ribbons or dangling charms for more flair.
