I saw something similar to this necklace in a store last week. I immediately liked the idea of something as simple and mundane as rubber bands to be turned into something pretty. Making this yourself is very simple and I am guessing this could also be great as a kid’s craft.
What you will need:
- Rubber bands. Preferably some that are the same colour and size, or, a mix pack where it’s easy to sort out colours and sizes.
- Jump rings.
- Pliers for the jump rings.
Sort your rubber bands and lay them out in the design you want. Note that the smallest size have two rubber bands for one chain loop and the larger ones consists of three or four rubber bands.
The thicker you want the necklace to be, the more bands you will need for each loop. I didn’t have that much rubber bands at home, but once I find some that I like I will make a thicker statement type of necklace.
Get another rubber band or something else to hold the first loop…
… and start building your necklace!
A few loops later.
When your necklace is done, close the two ends with a jump ring.
I made the bracelet the same way I did the necklace. The only difference is that I used the same size and same colour rubber bands for it.
