10 Awesome Loom Bracelets

Craft/ personal

You might not have noticed but there has been a massive craze in the past couple of months for these awesome little elastic bands!

Boo came home from a friends a couple of months ago with some loom bracelets and was keen to get started on making her own!

10 Awesome Loom Bracelets - This Mummy Loves

It’s so easy to get started; we bought a pack of bands from a local shop for £1.00 and we haven’t looked back since!

Here are ten of our favourite loom bracelets that we have made so far, the first four are made without a loom too so you can get started for very little cost 🙂

1. Single loop – These are the easiest loom bracelets, Boo has made hundreds! They are very quick and simple to make and keep Boo happy for hours!

2. Fishtail – Another one that Boo does quickly on her fingers! A little bit harder than single loop but Boo makes with ease!

3. Dragon Scale – We did this on a fork, it can be quite tricky to keep it all on at first, just make sure you keep it all pulled back! Boo managed to make this one too!

4. Hexafish – Getting a little bit trickier, this uses two forks! This baffled me for a while then I finally got it!

5. Starburst – This was the first we did on a cheap loom, it took me a few goes to understand it initially!

6. Ladder – This is was done on a loom too – Boo sets up all the bands and then I do all the hooking as she finds that bit the hardest.

7. Triple Single – Boo loves making these ones! They look ace 🙂

8. Extravaganza – I think this one is my favourite, the trickiest one I have made!

9. Pentalock – I did this one and then at the last minute as I was taking it off the loom I realised that I hadn’t hooked one of the bands and it fell to pieces, Boo was gutted so I had to do it all over again 😉

10. Zippy Chain – Last but not least the zippy chain! We love making rainbow coloured loom bracelets! They really cheer us up 🙂

Since making these bracelets we have bought one of the original Rainbow Looms and are loving it so much! We will share some of our favourite bracelets from that soon too!

Happy looming :O)

    I don;t understand this whole craze with loom bracelets but I guess I’m not the right age range! They do look like a lot of fun to make and encourages kids to be creative which is fab x

    My niece is Loom Bans crazy, and has mastered a few of the types above but my favourite is the Dragon Scale. Great colourful photos too.

    My 8yo has a loom, he loves making them, they were a huge craze in his class for a while, so he got the loom for Christmas! He hasn’t got quite this creative though 🙂

    I made lots of friendship bracelets when I was a child, so these are like the modern day version. Glad my son’s too young to be into them though. Would drive me insane

    The variation you can make does look amazing

  • Reply Mellissa Williams July 24, 2014 at 10:10 pm

    Well I never knew you could make so
    Many things with loom bands! I have to admit though if I has a little girl it would dive me a little crazy finding them everywhere but you can’t doubt how creative they can be

    those triple single ones look very impressive! (well they all do to be honest). My boys have really got into loom bands but tend to stick to loop and fishtail. It is great that it keeps them busy and they get to make each other nice gifts with the loom bands. x

    I used to love making friendship bracelets as a child and there are some similarities with those I think. My son is too little to really get into loom bands so I think we’ll miss this craze.

    Great looking crafting.
