Introduction: How to Make a Rainbow Loom Starburst Bracelet

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this starburst, I'm using Yellow as the starburst, Navy Blue as the border, and Clear for the alternations, like the cap bands and what not. Next, you will need your Loom and your Hook. Then, you need a place to sit and your IMAGINATION.

Step 2: Placing the Bands

Take your Loom and make sure the arrows are pointing away from you. Next, take your Navy Blue band and place it from the center peg to the second peg on the left.

Step 3:

Then, take another Navy Blue band and put it from the second left peg to the peg in front of this. Continue until you are at the end of the loom.

Step 4:

Now, take another Navy Blue band and place it from the left peg to the center top peg of the loom. Do the same thing to the other side of the loom.

Step 5:

Now that you have finished with the border, take a Yellow band and put it on the second center peg of the loom to the second peg on the right. Do this to the end of the loom.

Step 6:

Then, take another Yellow band and place it on the center peg to the first right peg of the loom. Continue clockwise until done.

Step 7:

When you are done with that, take a clear band and make a double cap band with it. To do this. Take your band and make a Figure 8 with it. Place it over the top of the loom. Do this to every center peg of every star until you are at the bottom.

Step 8:

Now that you are done with the cap bands, you are ready to loop the bands.

Step 9: Looping the Bands

First, turn your loom around so that the arrows are pointing toward you. Then, take your hook and loop the first center peg to the middle. Continue counterclockwise until at the end of the loom.

Step 10:

When you are done looping the bands, you are ready to loop the border bands.

Step 11:

Now, take your hook again and loop the Navy Blue band on the bottom. Do this to every band on the loom.

Step 12:

Your loom should look like this:

Step 13:

Now you are ready to pull it off! First take a Navy Blue band, and pull your hook through the top bands like you would with a Triple Single.

Step 14:

Now just pull it off!

Step 15: Making an Extension

Now, to make an extension, you want to put Navy Blue bands all the way to the top of the loom in a straight line.

Step 16:

Then, put your bracelet with the open end on the loom over the first band.

Step 17:

Loop them like you would with a single, and then pull it off.

Step 18:

Pull it off, then attach a C-clip to it and your'e done! Congratulations! You have made your first starburst!

I made it, but there are 5 loose bands, because the directions are too vague. I would give this tutorial 3 stars.

What do you mean just pull it off ?!?!?!?! How do you do it half the blue bands just fall off? This isn't very descriptive and helpful at all !!! Like where do you hook the band's on the previous step, I managed to figure it out but it took an hour! This is terrible can you make another one that tells you how to do things?

Anyone who is having trouble with the starburst (like me, a while ago) should try this website: loombandsnoloom.webs.com you can find a VERY easy tutorial there.

Seriously, even if you have the loom board, personally, the forks in this case work the BEST.

Good luck to everyone, let me know if the site actually helped!

This gets really confusing at the looping bit. I've checked every single video and site for these Star Bust, and I just can't do it

author

Hello.
Yes, same problem, I checked several sites, still didn't find anything :(
But i figured why not do it on forks, and actually I found that WAY easier, FINALLY I MADE IT!!!!!!! try this:
loombandsnoloom.webs.com
and it teaches you how to do it with forks, it has a video too, and I think they're updating it to have the written versions too (not sure if they have done that yet). although I have the loom, I found it easier on forks to be honest, you can try it too. Have made many star bursts!

Hope I helped! Good luck!
