The Basic (Single-Stitch) Ring
This is the easiest of all the Rainbow Loom projects – according to my daughter. It takes her a shorter amount of time than the other projects. There are different types of rings, but what we’ll show you on this video is how to make the basic ring.
There are three videos in this post. If you are reading by email or in a feed reader, you may need to click through to the site to see the videos.
The Fishtail Bracelet
This bracelet is one of the easiest patterns because you can create it in a number of ways. You may use your fingers, the rainbow loom, or you can even use two pencils. You can also use the mini loom which is great for smaller projects.
Another bracelet idea is the Double Bead Bracelet. For this one, you’ll need rainbow-colored pony beads. This is a more complicated pattern and you will definitely need the Rainbow Loom to create it. The difference in the Double Bead Ladder Bracelet and the simple Fishtail Bracelet is that you are also using the rubber bands to connect the beads into a shape that is similar to a ladder. To see an instruction video on how this is made, visit Rainbow Loom’s Youtube channel.
The Inverted Fishtail Necklace/Headband/Big Bracelet/Hair Scrunchie
One more project we’ll show you is the Inverted Fishtail necklace, which can easily convert to other fun, wearable items as well. This project is similar to the Fishtail pattern except that it is inverted. This project takes a bit longer than the Fishtail necklace, but is around the same level of complexity.
