Tic Tac Toe Rainbow Loom Bracelet Tutorial
Difficulty: Medium. Definitely learn the basic chain bracelet first, but this is a good step up!
This past Christmas, we joined the Rainbow Loom craze with Aidan receiving one from us as a gift! He LOVES it, and I love the fact that it builds coordination and creativity, as well as being a more constructive use of time than, uh, other things he has come up with. 🙂
Aidan has amazed me with how fast he has learned new Rainbow Loom designs, and this design is one that he came up with on his own. I’m sure there are not really any loom bracelet designs that are totally unique, but this is one that we haven’t seen anywhere else, and he wanted to share it with you! (And making this video was a fantastic homeschooling project!)
He named this bracelet the Tic Tac Toe because it has X’s and O’s in the center.
Before we get to the video, here are a couple notes:
- In the video, it says to use 24 bands of your border color. You will actually need 6 more than that to make the extension that turns it into a bracelet.
- Aidan made the center of the bracelet solid colored in the video. If you want the O’s to be the border color, put on border colored bands at the step in the video where you loop one band around the center pegs twice. (Watch the video, and see the picture below.)
Here is what the bracelet looks like after putting on all the bands:
And here is what the bracelet looks like after you “loom” it: (Is that what it’s called?)
Happy Looming! What are your favorite looming designs?
