    Cut a piece of string about 3 inches shorter than the jar.

    2Tie a clean paper clip to the end of the string. The paper clip should hang about an inch from the bottom of the jar.

    3Fasten the string to the middle of a pencil. Make sure when the pencil rests on the jar’s edge, the paper clip is still about an inch from the bottom of the jar.

    4Moisten the string and paper clip with water and then sprinkle some sugar on them. This will help the first crystals begin to form.

    5Bring one cup of water to a boil on the stove.

    6Once the water is boiling, quickly stir in 2 cups of cane sugar. Keep stirring until all of the sugar is completely dissolved. Add food coloring and flavoring at this point, if you wish.

    7Pour your sugar water into the jar and hang your paper clip into it. Within a few days you should start to notice crystals beginning to form on the string. The longer you wait, the bigger the crystals will grow.
