Heat to melt the sugar and turn it into a liquid
A set of very small holes that the liquid sugar can flow through to form threads of sugar
A spinning head that slings the liquid sugar outward so it is forced through the holes
use a stick to catch the threads

How did you heat it?
I believe the sugar was heated separately from the spinner, probably on a stove, then it was poured into the machine.
