3
Pour the solution into a glass jar.

4
Clamp a clothespin midway down the length of a wooden chopstick. The clothespin, which is set perpendicular to the chopstick, prevents the chopstick from dropping completely into the sugar solution.

5
Place the chopstick into the sugar solution, letting one end dangle down into the glass. Sugar crystals will form on the chopstick within three to seven days.
