With so many bracelets and charms under our belts, we felt we were ready for a challenge.
We love the idea of a Rainbow Loom project that involves candy and chocolate – so we decided that Craft Life’s Easter Basket would be the perfect project to take on. (We knew our mom would have to fill it with chocolate for the photo shoot – and we would reap the rewards!)
We lost track of how many bands we used – and how many hours. Let’s just say it took us several days to complete it.
There’s Emily, looming away!
About half way into the project, our loom caved under the pressure and actually came apart. Luckily, our smart-as-a-whip dad came to our rescue. So did Martha Stewart!
If you are going to attempt this project, it is super helpful to have an extra loom on hand so you can make the base more secure as pictured above. Also, a few large books under the base makes it less flimsy.
This project was the most difficult one to date! Do not attempt it unless you have spent oodles of hours on your loom – or you are adept at crocheting.
One more tip: Use glow in the dark bands, instead of plain white ones.
