Answer: A hanging one of course!!
Read on for the full How-To!!
You will need:
20 gauge stainless wire
needle nose pliers
First make a loop in the wire like this.
Grab a’ hold where your loop meets
(while holding wire with other hand.. I only had 4 arms to do this demo..haha!)
Hold wire on jar to determine where direct opposite is to form your other loop.
Bend wires and twist to hold.
Cut wire as long as you’d like your handle to be.
Hang on to the loop with the wire strippers
while you wrap the wire with your hand.
(I found the 20 gauge wire to be PERFECT!
Sturdy, yet easy to work with… here and here are great sources!)
Trim, trim, watch out eyes.. that wire flies!
Bend that sharp (OW!) end down with the end of your strippers.
See, even I can make a semi-professional looking loop.
(which means you’ll be able to NO problem-O!)
What would you put in here?
A candle (battery operated only for me!)
flowers, sand, driftwood, loose change, bug repellant,
grasshopper collection, ok just checking if you’re still with me
Have fun! Let me know how it turns out you wire wielding rock star!!
Yes, I do sell the wire already made to attach to your own jar HERE.
But seriously! You may as well make your own!
