Step 3: Making a Rubber Band chain

In this step, you make a chain to wrap on the ball. You take two rubber bands and tie them together as in the picture. make a chain as long as you want(more than 2. More like the length of the room from wall to wall)Then take the end rubber band and slide it on to the ball. use the chain to wrab the ball. At the end of the chain, slide the end rubberband on.
If you want to make an official record you cant have a marble in the middle because it is counted as cheating. you need to make a knot of bands tied together to start it!!!<br><br>:2)
mine so far is 14 pounds
I don't get this step. do i slide the band under a previous rubber band, or what? Oh, and please tell me how to connect the ends.<br />
That ball would be heavy :-P<br /> Where do you get the rubber bands that are very long?<br />
DANG! you must have some time on your hands. did you try playing basketball with it?
that would be fun until the ball exploded.
TORCH IT!!!!!!
Just on a side note you don't need a marble. Instead just take one rubber band(a small one works best) and smush it up into a little ball. Then start wrapping. Thats how I made mine.
You can make knots too. thats what I used but the marble is earsier for other people
how do u make the knot

Hello. Why don't you try to make to simpler, and where you don't have to use the marble
ah u cheated u didnt make an all rubber band ball i had one that was 8 inches across but it slowly started to fall apart ( dont leave in window)
you made a big rubber band ball
funny ! Does it bounce ? suggestion : add a few steps ;)
mine bounces good with a superball as a core
good luck on beating the world record. i think it was two shop owners who got bored one day because their business isnt doing too well so they started making one. now it wont fit outside the door. and lots of people come to their shop just to see it lol
wow, nice job making it as big as the basketball, thats crazy!
Ill make a tape ball instructable soon- chack it out. I made it to be 6 inches in diameter its deadly- heavy, big, super hard
So you're going to make a ball bigger than 6 feet in diameter?
Do you continue to add rubber bands as a chain, or as single rubber bands?
