Step 2: Making it hangable

Picture of making it hangable
You will need 3 or 4 pieces of wire around 30" long, I doubled up the floral wire for strenght and to add a little something to the finished product.. Pretty simple, wrap the wire around the jar below the screw cap and twist to hold it tight
