How to Make a Bracelet With Two Rubber Bands


For young girls and tweens, rubber band bracelets make an inexpensive fashion accessory. Use rubber bands that keep newspapers rolled up, or opt for the thicker bands that hold bunches of vegetables at the grocery store. Alternatively, you can buy packages of rubber bands at most craft supply stores. Experiment with different colors and thicknesses of rubber bands to create a bracelet for each outfit.

  • Hold one rubber band in your left hand and one in your right hand.

  • Pinch the center of the rubber band in your right hand to flatten it out.

  • Slip one end of the flattened rubber band through the center of the rubber band in your left hand.

  • Fold the rubber band in your right hand around the edge of the other rubber band. This creates a backwards letter “C” attached to the other rubber band.

  • Reach into the middle of the backwards “C” and grab the portion of the other rubber band with your left hand.

  • Pull this section to the left to form a “C” with the other rubber band. You now have a circular bracelet with one “C” and a backwards “C.”

Tips & Warnings

  • Use hair elastics in place of the rubber bands. If you need to put your hair in a ponytail, simply remove your bracelet and use your hair elastics.
