Get the mason jar ring and the wire snips. Then, make small cuts all around on the top part of the ring. You may not have to do this. The only reason that I did this was because on the plastic bubble wands they always have little ridges on them, and I think that those ridges have something to do with the overall bubble blowing performance. It might actually be better not to make the cuts, because afterwards you'll have a lot of sharp edges. So, it's really up to you how you want to do it.
Next, get your wire, and cut off however much you want. Keep in mind that the wire is going to be your handle, so however long you want the handle is as much as you should cut off. After you've got your wire cut, find the middle and insert it into one of the cuts that you made on the mason ring. Once you've got the wire into the space, wrap it around the ring once, and then begin twisting it. This is where you may want to use the pliers to help hold onto the wire. When you get to the end, take just a little bit of the wire and twist it on itself again, so that it's less likely to untwist.
