DIY Rubber Band Rings

The Rainbow Loom craze is still alive and well at this “Quirky” Momma’s house.

This craft was created completely – without any inspiration or participation of mom.

We have been following Band Bracelet tutorials for weeks and I love it when our kids are so engrossed that they create something new, completely on their own!

Make Rubber Band Rings

Supplies Needed to create a Band Ring:

2 Bands that are the “ring” part – pictured above, we chose black and yellow.
3 Bands that are the “jewel” part of the ring – pictured above, Lena chose pink blue and green.
Fingers – NO loom is needed to create these!!

I love simple activities!   Once your kids get the hang of it they can make these anywhere at any time!   And they will swap buckets of them with their pals!

Watch the video below for the full tutorial, but basically, you fold the bands through each other.   Repeat this at least three times.   If you want some variety in your jewel, consider mixing colors together, or doubling up on the bands so you fold two through the loops at each time.

When you get to the end of your “jewel”, make a slip knot to hold the final “fold” together.   For my daughter this was the hardest part.   It was difficult to grab the band to pull it through.

Then, loop both black banks onto your finger and it bunches as a “ring”.
