Full Answer

  1. Gather the materials

    Gather at least 20 rubber bands of the same size. Determine how long your bracelet should be by measuring around your wrist with a piece of string. Cut the string to the approximate length of the bracelet.

  2. Start the pattern

    Place one rubber band horizontally on top of a vertical one. Fold the horizontal rubber band around the other one, then insert one end of the horizontal rubber band into its other end. Pull it tight so that the vertical rubber band is folded into itself.

  3. Continue the pattern to the desired length

    Insert another rubber band through the vertical loops. Fold the ends of the third rubber band together, then insert a rubber band through the loops. Continue the pattern, and periodically compare the length of the bracelet to the length of the string. To close the bracelet, insert a C clip through the last rubber band, then insert the loop of the first rubber band into the C clip.
