Step 1: Gather Your Materials

For this skeleton hand, you will need...
•1 moveable loom
•rubber bands
•s-clip or c-clip
•beads (optional)
•loom pick or crochet needle

Step 2: Single Band

For this entire tutorial, you are using single bands only!

Step 3: Bee? Nope!

Take a bead and a single band. Push the band through the bead. I'm using black bands and yellow beads, so that sort of looks like a bee. Then transfer to your loom.

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat the band then bead process until you reach the end of your loom. If you have smaller fingers, make them shorter.

Step 5: Cap Band

You will make a total of six (6) cap bands throughout this tutorial. To make a cap band, twist a single band around the end twice, as shown.

Step 6: In and Over

Then go inside of the cap band and grab the single band that goes forward. Then loom as normal until you reach the end of your loom

Step 7: One Finger Done

Now you have a finger done. Take it off of your loom and transfer it to your pencil . Make four (4) more fingers and put each on your pencil.

Step 8: Give Me Five

When you have finished making all of your fingers, you can make the wrist part.

Step 9: Move It

Take apart your loom and use a base to connect two pieces, as shown. And sorry that the pictures are getting so dark. An awful storm was coming=(

Step 10: Begin

Place three single bands on your loom. Then, transfer one finger to your loom. Repeat this process until you have all five fingers on your loom.

Step 11:

Step 12: Cap Band

Twist a cap band around the end of your loom two times.

Step 13: In and Over

Go inside your cap band and grab the single band that will go forward. Loom like normal until you reach the top of your loom.

Step 14: How to Put On

First put an s-clip or c-clip at the end of the wrist part. Then, take the whole thing off of the loom and attach the ends together. To put on the hand, put on the wrist part and put the cap band at the end of each finger around the tip of your finger.

Step 15: Wear and Enjoy

Then wear your creation and enjoy! Thanks for viewing!
