I don't know about you but this rubber band bracelet is the only way I would get close to any spider. This Spider Rubber Band Bracelet is so cool, it could literally make you start flinging web. Just kidding, but it does grab a lot of attention. With 2 requests to do this instructable based off the concept I did for another bracelet (click here for that one) I created earlier this year, I knew it was time to recreate this bracelet to share.

What I love is that while this bracelet uses Rainbow Loom rubber bands; you do not even need a loom/ hook or even clips. Make yourself stand out by wearing one of these. They are also perfect for Halloween and cosplay.

Okay, come on, let's get this bracelet making party started by creating one big spider!

Step 1: Materials

Pretty easy on this list, all you need are some small rubber bands.

For my spider I choose the following colors:

Purple (head and body) You will need the most of this color.

Pink (eyes) Only need 2.

Black (body base and legs)

White (web)

If you like another color combo, get creative and go for it. I know that next time I build this one, I'd want to try out the glow in the dark ones.

*A quick note, I am sensitive to latex and Rainbow Loom rubber bands are latex free. Also these rubber bands do not break like the cheap ones you find in bulk for a few dollars less.

<p>THIS IS INCREDIBLY AWESOME!!!! A little difficult, but SO worth it!</p>

<p>It's not too hard to make if you follow the steps. I am currently working on a video to make it but am having terrible recording and uploading issues. I'll let you know when it posts.</p>
<p>Just seen the video thanks!</p>
<p>Thanks, i would find it a lot easier with a video. I have trouble understanding what you mean in the instructions. I found the legs and also the bit about connecting the bands paticulary difficult. It is proberbly just me miss understanding instructions so a video would be great!!! Please let me know when it is posted!</p>
<p>Oh, and what part is difficult for you? Perhaps I can explain it better.</p>
link me I make loom projects that don't require looms too
<p>Good luck on your instructables. There are endless possibilities without a loom. I'm hoping to show more myself very soon.</p><p>:-)</p>
I have been looking loom band projects that don't need a loom. thank you.☺
<p>You are welcome. </p>
<p>it's so difficult! Can you make one on the loom?</p>
<p>No, you can't make one on the loom although there are others who have made spider loom bracelets. </p>
Good job! I love how the white parts look like a web. Cool!
<p>Thank you. :-)</p>
Very cool
