How to Add Buttons to Rainbow Loom Bracelets


We’re going to let you in on a secret. One that will save you money – and make your Rainbow Loom experience even more fun (is that even possible?)

Good, old-fashioned buttons can be easily added to your RL bracelets instead of charms. In fact, we think they look even better!


We found our buttons at Michaels and Fabricland, but you can find them at any craft or sewing store.

We created a video that shows you how to attach a button to a Triple Single Bracelet. You can apply this technique for adding buttons to most patterns. Here is the video:

    Wow! This is really cool. I wish I had a loom like that so I could make bracelets without adding an extension. 🙂

    I didn’t have a button to put on, but I still made this bracelet with double bands. When I tried it on, I realized it was a teeny bit too tight… But it still turned out to be pretty!

    I’m watching I Dream Of Jennie, on me TV right now, but later, I’ll do it FOR SURE. I have a hole bunch of buttons I have absolutely NO use for, and now finally, I have something to do with them.


    And now I’m watching Dennis the menace. He’s sooooo funny:) it’s in black & white. The neighbor really thinks he’s handsome! Dennis wants to work 4 money. So he went over to mr and mrs Wilson’s house, and Dennis left a cleaning bucket in the house, so mr Wilson got his new shoes wet, and is now helping “tommy” wash dogs 2 get money.
