Introduction: Make LoomBands Out of Water Balloons!
Don’t you just hate buying useless stuff at the shops, when you can make it yourself? Here’s a short tutorial of how to make Loom Bands® for free!
Step 1: Grab Your Stuff
-Lots of water balloons (the tiny 3 cm ones).
-A bendy stick (a lollipop stick would be ideal).
Step 2: Where Do You Live?
Yes, that's all. If you live in a place where they hold a carnival (with water balloons and hoses), you should be able to find a sufficient amount of burst water balloons out on the street. You will only be needing the lip of the balloon, so don't worry if the balloons have holes.
Step 3: Start Er' Up
Bend your stick, now grab your lollipop stick and place the first loop onto it like so:
Step 4: Keep Er' Going
Next add a second balloon tip with a single twist, but now lift the edges of the bottom balloon tip up and over the edge of the lollipop stick like this:
Step 5: Make Some More
You may now continue this process until you have a large amount of loom bands®.
Step 6: Bracelet?
To make a bracelet, carefully remove the whole loom project off the lollipop stick, and tie both ends up with some cotton wool or any other suitable string.
Step 7: All Done!
You are now a loomband maker master! Challenge your friends... Who can make the longest?
