How to make (or buy) the coolest Rainbow Loom bracelet patterns: The ultimate guide

If you haven’t yet heard of the crazy success of Rainbow Loom Bracelets, you cannot be a parent. Or you are a parent, but for some reason, haven’t noticed that every single kid on the planet seems to be wearing them up to their elbows these days. They’re like the love child of the lanyard of my own summer camp days, and the Silly Bandz craze of a few years ago.

If you want to make your own, or your kid is tired of making the same old style, I’ve put together a comprehensive roundup of good YouTube Rainbow Loom Bracelet How-To tutorials for some of the top designs at all levels.

If you’d rather buy them, well we’ve also got some entrepreneurial bracelet makers on Etsy, lots of them students.

Just make sure you know how big they are before you order. My six year-old is fond of making me Rainbow Loom bracelets that fit her dolls just fine.
