HOW TO: DIY hook / pencil grip

My new obsession.. I hope you like this tutorial.

I do not own a rainbow loom. I bought a fun loom a few years ago at Family Dollar hoping I could do the same things on it as on a rainbow loom… nope. The rainbow looms comes apart the fun loom does not. I haven’t touched it since I bought it, up until a few weeks ago.

So how can I make the hook/pencil grips?

Easy…

I used a corner piece of a loom and weave kit. img_3708

You will need something to pull the rubber bands off the pegs with . I used a loom tool.

I used 24 bands of the 2 colors I wanted to use

4 bands are used for each row. So grab 4 and using the picture below , start your first row.

Place a band on peg 1 and twist it and place the loop on peg 2. With another band, place it on peg 2 on top of the band you just placed. Twist the band and put it on peg 3.  with a third band , place on peg 3 , twist it and put the loop on peg 4. And lastly, with a 4th band, place it on peg 4, twist it and put the loop on peg 1 .

With a second color, place the rubber bands on the same order but with out twisting.

Pull off the bottom 2 loops over the top loops and the peg. Repeat.

After a few rows, it should look like this.

With a hook or a pencil …..

Pull the bottom loops over the end. 2 for each side. Then push the piece down and repeat.

your grip is now free from the loom. Push it to where you want it to be.

 

Now you are done…… time to make more 🙂
