It can be any colors you like, but I like rainbows :)

I was bored and was presented with mini rubber bands.
My initiative was at first to shoot them at anyone and everyone around me,
then I realized i was alone.
And wasn't actually presented with the mini rubber bands, but i walked into a room and saw them in a little tin. <3
So, I made these. This sort of thing would also be really cute as an earring... Theres my next project!




You Will Need

Project Cost
Almost Nothing

  1. Step 1 1

    Get your tiny rubber bands all together.
    Make sure you have a good selection of colors, and clear rubber bands as well.

  2. Step 2 2

    Pick out two of each color you would like, and then get one clear rubber band.
    Get somewhere from 7-20 different colors of the band.
    Make sure your rubber bands are stretchy.(:

  3. Step 3 3

    Loop your first two together.
    Once done, it should look something like the picture.
    Pull them tight, loose knots look tacky.

  4. Step 4 4

    Continue looping/knotting your rubber bands together.
    If the first few are coiled or off-centered, practice on some clear rubber bands or some that you won't be using. practice makes perfect!

    P.S. Like my rainbow? <3

  5. Step 5 5

    Once you get to the last color in your pattern (in my case, pink) restart the pattern.
    dark blue,
    light blue,

    dark blue,
    light blue,

    STOP! Now, get your clear rubber band.

  6. Step 6 6

    Loop the clear rubber band between the last and first rubber bands in your pattern. (Red and Pink)
    Keep making random knots with the white one, but make sure the "red" and ''pink'' don't overlap each other.
    Also, make sure the clear rubber band is sticking out rather than part of the sequence.

  7. Step 7 7

    Put the bracelets on.
    Not the right size?
    Get some scissors or something and break the clear rubberband.
    Add more or take some away until it fits right.

    P.S. Mine was so much bigger than my wrists that I just decided to wrap them twice, and since I stuck to my pattern (R O Y G DB LB P) when i folded it over the same colors are next to each other.

  8. Step 8 8

    Strut your epic rubber band bracelets.

    We're so cool.
