We love Despicable Me, so we were excited to find a tutorial on how to make a Minion Bracelet. We think it turned out great!
The instructions for the video are straightforward. The hardest part is sourcing the eye for the Minion. We used a black button, then used white paint to create the eyeball part.
Here is the video we used by Bridget V that we used to created our cutie:
Is there anyway I can do this without that thing and wat is it called the tube thingy
I’ve made these 1 million times and i’ve found out that no u can not make it without the loom(the tube is called the loom) You can buy them at micheal’s, justice,and many more craft stores. but they may not loook the same as others.
hey this world is awesome because loom bracelets have been created lol!!
I agree xoxo
you can make them without the loom i did it but that was ages ago and it was not staying together very well i used 6 clips
I made this bracelet for my sister. Then i wanted to make one for my cousin with out the loom. When she put it on it completely fell apart! Don’t ever try to make it with no loom!
Hi you can make the minion without the loom i made a 3d minion using hook only and it’s fab!
These are awesome! I would love some written instructions to pass out to my students. They Loom every day before school and at Recess…they are definitely addicted.
Hi Bethany.. Sorry, I don’t have written instructions, but maybe Bridget V has some. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EvLrdMELRI
Its ok but it was really helpful I’m ten and i have 3 looms and when I’m bored all i do is make bracelets. Thanks 🙂
Where do you get the eye beads?
Hi Bella.. We used a round, black button and painted the white part.
Do you think just plain old googley eyes would work?
You’d have to figure out how to attach it.
Yeah I used one u have to use glue or tape to stick it
You cannot use old googly eyes beacuse they are old they won’t stick on pro poly
Actually another thing you could do is make an eye from rainbow loom rubber bands.what u do is you wrap the eve color around your hook 3 or 4 times then wrap white around on the sides then hook a rubber band on the hook,use your spare fingers to pull it on the rubber band and BOOM! You got an eye
I know how to attach it how is that you use a hot glue gun and put a c or s clip on the back of the google eyes and then you let them dry and you can not use regular glue because it takes forever to dry and I will just fall off after so make sure to use a hot glue gun and it works really well and by the way the hot glue guns glue on the google eye only takes about thirty seconds to dry
I found some googly eyes with the thing on the back at Hobby Lobby and they were only 1 dollar. i have made this bracelet with a painted button but these work SO MUCH BETTER!!!
Thank you so much!! These are so awesome. My son and I made one and he loves it!!
That’s great Rebecca!
This site is helpful and awsome
What size button did you use? 10mm?
I found the googly eyes at Hobby Lobby! They are in the craft section by all the other googly eyes- just get the 10mm sew on eyes.
it is sooooooooooo cool luv it !!!!!!!!!!!
At times projects like this can get tense when a rubber band snaps. Tips?”
make sure you know exactly where that band was and if u have another one of those colors so you can fix it
What is the best ways to avoid rubber band breakage? especially after your well into the project. Aside from just being careful not to pull to hard.
Ria H I find that giving most of them a little stretch before you use them and if they have little prickly buts don’t use them as they are dry and are most likely to break while your using them and also don’t use the thinner ones as they will probably break to. Hope I helped
Like u should totes make more rainbow loom charms! These are ah-mazing ^.^
oh my word i am going to make one as soon as i get my loom i is sooooo cute!
Cool! I made this with a googly eye. 🙂
Love this and it is super easy to follow! For the eye I used a plain googly eye and a tiny drop of super glue in the middle of the goggles, it worked great! Thanks for the project idea!!
How do you extend it?
Hi. How do you extend it on a single?
do you know how to make these with your fingers
I don’t think u can
did 3 of these I sold them fr 2 dollars well pepl sure love them. I also made puppies giraffes n many other animals wich sold like hot cakes! tanks fr da idea make more probly even some like neclaces good luck on that!
How do you make a dog?
Do you have a video?
Lol! This is so cute! Me and my sister made it and it turned out great! Thank you very much Loop Love! We get all of our instructions on braclets right here! If you wern’t here we would just be staring at out rubber bands wondering what to do! P.S: Can you make the EVIL MINIONS? You know,the purple ones,crazy hair,talk differenter than regular minions and all that stuff. Can you make a Nyan Cat one also? If you know what nyan cat is
I found out that you can make the evil purple minions by replacing the yellow bands with purple bands, and the blue with black bands!
I don’t have a great band will any color work?
I don’t have a grey band, so will any color work?
Yes I used a white.works fine.black would work too.
Of course!! It’s your bracelet. Do whatever you want to do with it! What I do is just get another rubber band that looks similar to that color.
It doesn’t have to be what the video says.
It can be what you want.
Maybe you could do a pink minion with a purple goggle on and green dungarees.
As long as you like it, it doesn’t matter.
So darn cuuuuute!!!!!!!!!!!!
How do you make them can you do a more clear video? I am not sure how to make a minion????
OMG MY BROTHER WOULD LOVE THAT BRACELET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After you loop the right side, you skip to all being done. Do you do the left side next and then the middle? Or middle then the Left? The middle looks a bit different than the sides, so I’m a bit confused. Thank you
You do the middle then the sides.I made one and I love it.the tutorial is not very easy to follow but I was able to make it cause I know how to make a triple-single.thanks for the ideas.I love,love,LOVE IT!
This is a horrible “tutorial”. No one can see what you’re doing, and you don’t explain things clearly. Try having the camera at such an angle as to allow people to ACTUALLY SEE WHAT YOU’RE DOING. That’s what tutorials are ::supposed:: to do. Good grief. How hard can it be to understand that you can’t show people how to do something if they can’t see what you’re doing? Not rocket science.
They have it at a angle where everyone can see and there is positive comments saying how easy it was and good explanation so get your facts right and open your eyes
I love this tutorial! Its awesome! And there super cute!!????????
all the rainbow loom bracelets are so cool but some of them need the straight loom and i have fun loom
Just made this with my son. It turned out so cute!
Thanks so much loom love! U guys are so awesome
That is soo cute!! ????
Do you think you can make the purple minion? With the hair on top. That would be cool. ????????
This has to be the best bracelet ever!!! A despicable me minon?!?!! How cute!!!!!!!
Loom it up peeps!!!!!
how do you extend it?
Love minion aww and your braclet
do you need to double the bands or do you have to have double the bands??
It is amazing how you do them. I watched the video and then showed it to my family and friends and now we have a ton of them because everyone has made one even with the eye. You are so cool make more
i made one but instead i did a triple single… i havent put the eye on yet though
Do you have to do the eye close to the beginning like the bidio shows ,or can you put it on at the end?
Can you make this even if you don’t have an eye bead thing?
This is super cool
I love it
i just used bands for the eye
hey i was wondering where did u get the eyes from i have looked on ebay and i cant find them please help thanks.
I love this bracelet.But when i made this the first time my loom broke. Loom love please can you answer me this question? Where can i get a better and ajustable loom from? thanks 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jasmine, is your loom an official Rainbow Loom?
In love with this haha xD
i love this
How many bands were used? BTW, it’s really cute! ????
Hey I really enjoyed making this but the video is quite hard to follow at times. She says: like this! And quickly flips the loom towards the camera for all of a second before hiding it again!!!! Very frustrating!!!!
Hey do you have to use that loom board or can u use others the one if that makes sense because everyone I have seen am usng the same board plz help
I love the minion bracket. The video easy to follow and it is not as complex as it looks. Thanks.
Wow these vids are helping me learn
This tutorial doesn’t work out as I do exactly what she says but falls apart
boy these videos are helpful and uniqe
Do you think it would be possible to make an arms exstention?
by any chance could we use one rubberband f
*of two because my rubberband are almost over …
I seem to find that this works well instead of using the button thing but using a cap band way. You can see it during the tutorialsbyA pokeball charm with pop out centre (the pop out centre is the bit I used for the eye).
OH MY GOSH I CANT BELIVE THAT IT TOOK ME HALF IN HOUR TO MAKE – SO AMAZING AND SO AWSOME TO
I love this bracelet.But when i made this the first time my loom broke. Loom love please can you answer me this question? Where can i get a better and ajustable loom from? thanks xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
i found this fun but when you picked it up off of the loom to make it longer you did not really say how you pick it up
We love your videos because we can’t do any of your bracelets and charms we have no loom or bands we Just like to watch how lucky you are so can we sign up for the giveaway this is our favorite bracelet.
maybe you should just put the camera in front of you and the thing in front of you. because just in first time you started, it was very hard to look
this website is fun but on the despicable me video it says you have to have one google eye for I don’t have one what do you do if you don’t have one
I had the same problem! I took a black bead and painted a small white circle on it, and used that instead. It worked! You could also use bands, maybe. Hope that helps!
My kids love these. Was my first time making on a loom and took me about 6 attempts before I got it. My problem was on pulling hoops above triangle. Got it eventually and looks fantastic. I would use double bands on blue triangle at the end to give more strength. AWESOME!!!
this was easy. it looks soo cool.
can u use bands for the eyes?
Yes. we can
I made this bracelet and it turned out awesome!!!!The turorials are easy to follow!!! keep it going loom love!
So cute my aunt would really like this because she loves minions!
I know how to attach it how is that you use a hot glue gun and put a c or s clip on the back of the google eyes and then you let them dry and you can not use regular glue because it takes forever to dry and I will just fall off after so make sure to use a hot glue gun and it works really well and by the way the hot glue guns glue on the google eye only takes about thirty seconds to
You are rocking. This website is just awesome. I can’t stop loving it. But instead of the goggle eyes can we do the eye with rubber bands? Please make a bracelet of draculaura the monster high character. Please….
