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.

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.

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

OMG! that was fun! It did take me 30mins, but it was worth it. Just a little vague, but great quality instructions.

Katlyn (author)2017-05-29

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

nina6 (author)2017-05-16

It is the looping I don't get

PeopleMcNugget (author)2017-02-18

The instructions were a little bit vague, but it was quality stuff, and my bracelet turned out really cool!

milly.stillwell (author)2017-01-18

See it looks easy but as soon as i made it and i pulled it of like i was ment to but then i falls apart you must be magic

lanieki (author)2016-01-08

So, my friend gave me one before and I thought it was so hard! But now I realize it's about as easy as the single bracelet!

Loom Life made it! (author)2015-01-17

I made it xx

jack spratt (author)2014-06-28

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?

Loom Life (author)jack spratt2015-01-17

if u r having trouble making this plz check out SoCraftastics tutorial on YouTube

color489 (author)2014-12-28

super hard I tried like in 4 times

boholoom (author)2014-10-30

Anyone who is having trouble with the starburst (like me, a while ago) should try this website: 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

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:
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!
