In my pre-teen years my friends and I would make each other friendship bracelets out of different colored strings. I remember some of the knots were braided, twisted and even called “the tornado” knot. I would make them for myself, but also for my friends. Ya know, because you’re going to remain bff’s for life, right? My nieces to this day still make these bracelets for themselves and their friends, but they’ve also been introduced to the latest craze – the rainbow loom. The rainbow loom has been around for a few years now, yet people are still learning about it (if they’ve even heard about it at all). It’s a plastic loom used to weave colorful rubber bands into charms and bracelets, and is geared towards children and teens. We have some pretty fun rainbow loom patterns and projects that may seem a bit intimidating, but if you watch the video you should easily be able to follow. Once your rubber bands are placed on the loom you’ll then begin looming with the hook. Don’t take my word for it, watch!
