10. To form the second part, bring the unbent wire
down and to the left (Figure G). Finish the twist:
bend the wire that’s still up on the standard nail
back down toward the right (Figure H).
11. Now that you’ve made the anchored twist, make
a second simple twist beneath it (Figure I). Mash
down the 2 twists with the head of the hammer
(Figure J). You can then run the wires over to the
next 2 finishing nails.
12. Pull down firmly, make sure the wires are
straight and flat, and then repeat Steps 8–10 to
make another anchored twist (Figure K).
13. Add a half dozen or so simple twists at the end
(Figure L). Then pull the wire off the jig (Figure M)
and cut off the shorter wire end as close to the
twists as possible.
14. Wrap the loose end of wire around the nose
of the pliers. Then pull the pliers free and use
them to press the end of the wire into a tight curl
(Figure N). Then bend the wire into a hook like the
one on a coat hanger (Figure O).
Add the Jar and Finish
15. Set the jar onto the 2 twists in the center of the
wire cage, and, starting from the bottom, bend the
cage up and around the glass (Figure P). At this
point, make any slight adjustments to the fit, and
ensure that the jar is well contained in the wire.
16. Bend the hook and loop ends of the wire so that
they meet in the center of the glass. Fold the looped
end under the hook so that they fit together to lock
the cage shut (Figure Q).
17. Add a candle. Write a message on the sticker
that’s included with the glass jar, or make a custom
sticker and affix it to the glass. Light the candle
with a long match and hang the lantern wherever
