This is the simplest and most basic loom band and there is no loom required! :)
Lots of loom bands
An s clip
*it doesn't matter what type of pens they are, but it helps if they're the same size
**this is a loom hook. When you buy a pack of loom bands, it might come with a hook, but you can also get them at craft stores. This is optional and sometimes using your fingers is just better.
Place one band on the 2 pens. You should twist it across both pens like a figure 8
Now, place another band on top of the twisted one. Don't twist it, just put it normally
Grab the bottom band on the right side and pull it up and on top of the higher band. It should look like the photo.
NOTE: for this, you can use the hook or your fingers.
Do the same on the other side so it looks like this.
Now our a fee more band on top
Take the bottom one and bring it up again so it looks like this
And bring it up again....
In the end it should look like this (but maybe a little longer)
Now take one side off the pen & attach an s clip to both bands on that side
Now do the same with the other side but attach the bands to the same curve on the clip.
.......the finished product
MINE TURNED OUT LIKE A FISHTAIL BAND AND I DON'T KNOW WHY THAT WAS BUT ITS COOL ANYWAYS
ALSO, IT WAS MORE LIKE A RING BUT THAT WAS JUST BECAUSE I DID A SMALL ONE
