Rubberband Belt or Bracelet

Kids can create their own rubber band finery by simply repeating the loop knot shown below and adding beads. Wear it with a dress, jeans — or even quadruple-wrapped around a wrist or ankle as a bracelet or anklet.

  • Colorful rubber bands (we used 15 2 1/2- by 1/16-inch bands for a 30-inch-long belt)
  • Clear beads (we used 50) with a 3/16-inch or larger hole (available in multipacks at craft or bead stores)
  • 1 large bead with a 3/16-inch hole (for clasp)
  • Scissors
  1. Rubber Band Belt - Step 1 Use a loop knot to attach 2 rubber bands.
  2. Rubber Band Belt - Step 2 Add a bead, or several, to the second band. If you like, tie spacer knots between the beads. Leave enough space at the end to attach the next band. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the belt is the length you want.
  3. Rubber Band Belt - Step 3 To create a clasp, thread the large bead onto the last band on one end and knot it to secure. Leave the loop for decoration or cut it off. On the other end, thread a small bead onto the last band and knot it so that you have a loop that fits securely over the big bead.
