It looks like you've got two complete sentences in a row that aren't separated by punctuation. You can separate them with a period:

 

Take more wire from the bottom of the butterfly. Loop the wire around the ring to make the ring horizontal.

 

Or you could separate them with a comma and a conjunction (and):

 

Take more wire from the bottom of the butterfly, and loop it around the ring to make the ring horizontal.

 

Hope that helps! Holly

Not to be picky (well, to be picky), the comma isn't needed in your last example because this is a compound verb rather than a compound sentence.

It's not necessary, but I kinda like it there, 'cause otherwise you might start reading it as, "take more wire from the bottom of the butterfly and [somewhere else]," and you'll need to backtrack to see what the heck it's talking about.
