Round the aluminum pieces into half circles.  If you bought the turkey pan with the contoured bottom, you’ll want to try and flatten the contours out by hand.

Attach the two sections with metal paper clips. The two sections can be attached by other means, but I have found paper clips to work quite well!

Insert bicycle spokes at the pre-marked height.  I like to have them make a triangle in the middle, but you can also do two or three parallel spokes.  Either way works fine.  The triangle looks nice if you can get it in the center, but close is OK.

Should fit inside your pot if this was your intent.  You may need to do some additional trimming.
