Step 2: Hanging the Jar

Twist an eye in the wire first, that will be used in making the handle.  See the diagram.   The section of the wire that holds the jar wraps around the jar mouth once, and twists with itself on the far side from the eye.    You can wrap it around twice, if you feel doing so is more secure.   Run the free end through the eye to complete the handle.  
This is so cool. I love this. Especially since <a href="http://www.everythingstore.biz/default.asp?dept_id=45230" rel="nofollow">hanging candle lanterns</a> can be so expensive to buy sometimes.
Lovely.. <br>Thanks for sharing!
Injustice did a redneck handle holder. Put sand in a Mason jar and stickthe candle in Yours is nicer
These look so professional I could easily see them in a boutique-y type store. Now I know what I will be doing with all the old blue canning jars I have collected.
The colored jars should make great lights.
This is very cool, I'd love to see these glowing at night!
Got to make them first! Go for it!
Looks like every earthquake kit ought to have wire. <br>And Jars! Not to mention candles... <br>
Throw in a box of matches and I&quot;ll take it!
