Intro: How to Make Rubber Band Bracelets

This is an easy way to make cool rubber band bracelets without a loom! These are fishtail bracelets that i'll be making. While you can make these rubber band bracelets on a Rainbow Loom, you can also use your fingers. It's just as easy!

Step 1: Your Material

All you need to make these bracelets are: 40 rubber bands, (20 of each color,) an S or C hook, and your fingers.

Step 2: The First Band

Add a band to your index finger, flip it over, the put the other side on your middle finger.

Step 3: The Next Bands

Put another band of the other color just above the first one. Dont twist this one. Then you put on a third one above the second, using the first color.

Step 4: Making the Fishtail

Once you have three bands on your fingers, take the bottom band, and move the side thats on the index finger to the middle. Then repeat with the other side. Keep adding and moving bands to the middle until you have used all your bands.

Step 5: Halfway

About halfway through, your bracelet should look like this.

Step 6: Finishing It Up

Once you have used all of you bands, move the bottom band to the middle. Once you do that, move both sides of the only band left onto one finger. Then put the hook on, and connect it to the other side. And there you have it, an awesome bracelet to wear and show to your friends! Thanks for checking out this instruct able!

    I think its much easier with the loom kit. 'Cause I have it and I tried to make the fishtail bracelet your way and it did not come out well. I looked more like a zipper pattern bracelet I make with liner.
