Here's how to make an easy loom bracelet for beginners. I bought a cheap kit with a loom and elastic bands, but the instructions were very hard to follow. I hope you find these clearer.
: 20 minutes
: 5 to 10s, Over 10s
Make a diagonal on the 'u' shaped pegs
Make a zig zag
Turn the board around until the pegs make 'n' shapes
It's now time to 'weave' the elastic together.
Hooking the pink elastic on the second peg
Lifting the pink elastic off the second peg
Hooking the pink elastic onto the third peg
Hooking the blue elastic on the third peg
Lifting the blue elastic off the third peg
Hooking the blue elastic onto the fourth peg
All of the elastics hooked forward
Bracelet fastened closed with the 's' fastener
Your loom band bracelet is now ready to wear. Have fun experimenting with different colour patterns.
