DIY Rainbow Loom for under $5 (n_n)

on December 1, 2013

I think this is my 1st actual Tutorial of sorts posted onto MYT CR8TiV™. If you’re a avid crafter I am sure you’re well aware of the Rainbow Loom craze and making bracelets from little rubber loops. You don’t actually need to buy the Rainbow Loom. You can easily make one yourself for less. I am going to show you how you can make your own Rainbow Loom for under $5.

WHAT YOU NEED :

  • One(1) box of Push-Pins
  • A pack of Erasers or A Novelty Jumbo Eraser
  • A Pen or Marker
  • A Ruler
  • Duct Tape or Packaging Tape *If using the small erasers*

I bought these packs of erasers at the dollar store and these are what you’re going to use to make your own Loom for making Rainbow Loom bracelets with.

I’m gonna use the Jumbo Pink eraser for the tutorial but if you can’t find this Jumbo Pink eraser and can only find a pack of the small erasers you’ll just need to tape them together using Duct Tape or Clear Packaging tape and you can tape them together in a long length wise like a ruler shape or like this …

What you do next is mark every ½” on your Eraser on both sides but you’ll place the push-pin in at every 1″ inch mark …

After you’ve marked the eraser take your push-pins and place a pin into the eraser and every 1″ inch mark …

CIMG0762TADA !! You got yourself a loom ready to use those rubber loops on. The push pins can easily be removed and moved around if you’re going to be doing more complicated looming designs that require more pins to be spaced together or something.

You can place pins down the center of this eraser as well. B3 CR8TiV and adjust it to your liking !! (n_n) But this is my DIY tutorial for making your own Rainbow Loom using an Eraser and Push-Pins. Hope you found this very useful and you share with your friends !!

**** UPDATE **** : I found that using this DIY Rainbow Loom works very well. I found a small baggie of rubber band loops at Walmart for $2.48 in the jewelry aisle and bought two bags. In the bags comes a pack of C clips and a looming hook. I found that it’s easier to use a jumpring than the C-clip for if you’re going more advanced designs that require multiple loops to be clipped through the C clip it can be difficult to get them to slip on. (>~<) I tried to force three loops onto a C clip and the C clip snapped in half so I grabbed a jumpring and found it worked alot better and was alot easier to fit alot onto it.

A YouTube channel I definitely recommend if you’re looking for Rainbow Loom tutorials is Justin’s Toys @ http://www.youtube.com/user/justinstoys?feature=csp-in-feed He has alot of video tutorials for many different Rainbow Loom bracelets from beginner to advanced designs.
