8 Easy Bracelets for Rainbow Loom Beginners

easy rainbow loom designs

When we got our Rainbow Loom back in September 2013 we started out with the Single and the Fishtail pattern. Once we mastered those we searched Youtube for easy bracelet tutorials, but we quickly discovered that most patterns weren’t labeled, so it was impossible to know if they were suitable for our skill level . As a result, we had to fumble our way through some difficult patterns, which at the time, seemed very frustrating.

If you are new to Rainbow Loom you’re probably like we were back then – scouring the net for easy tutorials that won’t leave you in the midst of a complete Rainbow Loom Fail. That’s why we have rounded up eight of the easiest Rainbow Loom bracelet designs that we could find. Once you’ve accomplished all of these patterns, you’ll be well on your way to taking on more advanced designs.

    I already know how to do most of these. But, I’m wondering: for those who don’t know how to make these, why didn’t you post video tutorials? It would be easier for them.

  2. Brittany says:

    I had just got my new loom for Christmas, and have tried acopole of these that I thought were easy but the bonbon always fell apart when I tried to make it. I really loved the fishtail and the railroad though.

  3. Brooke says:

    I got obsessed with the rainbow loom. I have been making bracelets like crazy. I am even selling them to people in my class.

  4. BrooklynShoeBabe says:

    Thank you for this. I’m still a beginner. Mostly I do the bracelets using chopsticks, but I’m looking forward to trying the more “complicated” beginning bracelets like the double fish tail and the railroad.

    • Samantha says:

      The railroad is the same as the triple single accept not filling the middle row with elastics on the loom and the double fish tail is the same as the fish tail just using 2 elastics instead of one. They are fairly simple the kids that i work with just showed me these today and i already know how to make several different types.

  5. Kendra says:

    I had my little sisters do these (6 and 7 years) since they both got looms for Christmas, and they can do many of the harder bracelets including starburst. Thanks guys!

  6. Julia says:

    Great bracelets I’ll defiantly make some of these but one question, was it hard to surf through YouTube and decide which skill levelwould fit each ?

    • Lynnzie says:

      I totally agree literally about YouTube because I type in some bracelets I wanted to do and some think penguins at the zoo pops up Lille literal peniguins not loom peniguins actual peniguins????????and I go on this website and boom I’m figuring out how to make bracelets like crazy thanx 4da people how made dis website

  7. Maddy says:

    I love making bracelets with my rainbow loom. My favorite bracelet is the double fishtail. Very addicting.

  8. Maddi???? says:

    I absolutely love these loom bracelets. You must be very talented if you know how to do all of those bracelets.
    Thanks for this website it is so useful.
    Sincerely Maddi ????

  9. Rissa says:

    I thought the Triple Single was also known as the Waterfall… at least, thats what the kids here came them.

    • Anastasia says:

      It is easy to do the single, fishtail and inverted fishy on 2 fingers ( that is how I prefer to do those ones).

      PS: Awesome web!!!

      • loombandz says:

        Sames their is also the double fishtail you can do and I just thought. Could you do a double fishtail inverted??

  10. Eve says:

    love this website! I got a loom for Christmas and I cant stop making them. I started with the single than railroad then I did the kaleidoscope one and I just finished the fishtail and I think the next one I’m making is the triple single cause it looks awesome! I invented this bracelet where you make a single or fishtail but when you’re done make another one clip one side of the second one on the first one and the make other side of the second one loop so it makes a bracelet with a ring and a sort of (bracelet/string) in between. I hope you understood what I meant and sorry if it was complicated!

  11. Eve says:

    you can see what I meant by, going to home, pressing the pic with written something like wacky loom contest winner, it will show pics of the five top of the contest including the winner. scroll all the way down and before the comments, you will see a small pic written something like 20 best for wacky bracelet contest. press it, then, you will see the same pic with a paragraph, near the end of it, you can see written vote here in purple underlined, press on that. then you are at this facebook, scroll down till you find this pic near the right corner that looks like a bracelet with a ring around a finger attached to it. Press it and make sure it says something like myyyyaaa macaroni bracelet and you can see what I meant by looking at the ring attached to the bracelet. Sorry about the really complicated stuff and hope you look at it and make a tutorial for this even if it is really easy to make. Thanks πŸ˜‰

  12. prissy girl 101 says:

    I just got one for Christmas and I barely know how to do anything but thx 2 u I know how 2 do a whole 2lot more thx so much your the best whoever u r

  13. Tiarna says:

    My kids love it and they are so easy to make a found some where that Does not need a flim clip because Internet is slow

  14. Angel says:

    Thank you soo much!!! You’ve really helped me to make these bracelets and I’ve started selling them with some of my friends to my class in school and they love them!

  15. Michelle says:

    Thank you so much for putting this together! My daughter just started making bracelets. I wanted to find different styles for her to try, and it was really confusing on YouTube to figure out which patterns were easy or advanced. This was exactly what I was looking for!

  16. TinkerBell says:

    I would like to be able to do these when I get the bandaloom set… All my friends have got some and I am the only one that hasn’t. I can’t wait to try these designs when I do get the set.
    I have already learnt how to make the fishtail and the single one, it is so amazing how easy they r when they look so complicated…

  17. AbbyLuvsLooms says:

    I LOVE RAINBOW LOOMS but i need a video of how to make a starburst bracelet with FINGERS ONLY because i dont have the original loom and its really confusing TY πŸ˜€

  18. sarah says:

    hi I got some loom bands for my birthday and I didn’t now how to make them but thanks to this website I now know how to make triple singles,fishtails and original loom bracelets I taught some kids at school how to make them. A lot of them wanted me to make them one. I wonder how hard it was and how long it took to figure out how to make the looms? My favourite colours are dark blue,green,red and yellow. Loom bracelets are a lot of fun to make. I hope in the future more loom bracelets,rings,necklaces and a lot more things will be invented. Thanks for inventing and showing me how to make loom bracelets I wonder how many other things can be made out of loom bands?

  19. isabel says:

    I have never used a loom before but when I tried this website it was simple, thankyou! πŸ™‚

  20. Braidyn says:

    I always struggle with making the bands because when I do i they come off all wonky and it’s a bit annoying, it’s still really good fun though and I enjoyed it!????

  21. Awesome says:

    ???? love these… All I know how to make is a fishtail… I got is many and these made looming more interesting, thankyou!!! (I am usually very bad at following instructions but these are simple thankyou thankyou πŸ™‚ )

    • ANGELINAYAN says:

      do you know how to make a single
      it is reeley easy
      all you have to do is put one band inside another and fold it

  22. alana isaac says:

    i like them because they are amazing and easy to make so that is cool as and when we have them on they make me feel home and safe with them and they awesome

  23. Chaya says:

    I tried the triple single but it fell apart because my loom is different. Instead of the pegs being straight they are like this:
    -_-_-_-, can I still do the bracelets, or do I need a new loom?

    • not telling says:

      Mines similar and the pegs are diagonal going down but I went on a different website where they have video tutorials and it worked perfectly. When I’ve clicked on some of the tutorials like the double fishtail on the other website it has a different loom bracelet maker. On the one they used the pegs are in a straight line in each row. So I think with certain loom designs we will need a different loom bracelet maker. But don’t worry if you can’t get one because if you look up on youtube how to make a starburst one it uses the one we have.

  24. not telling says:

    The triple single is actually a waterfall braid. And it would help if you put more designs up.

  25. Nat says:

    Hey can i ask, where can you get a loom from and im struggling on the hockinng bit . Thankyou xxx

  26. Abby says:

    I love doing the triple single braclets they are epic awesome and of course look great on me I’ve made at least 20 by now I just can’t stop doing them because I’m doing one right now!!!!!
    Everyone can you post and tell what your favourite braclet is and how many you’ve made of them hopefully you really like the triple single oh and I really like doing the fishtail braclet I’ve made a really long with over 500 bands see if you can beat that score if you have please reply to me and tell me how many bands you’ve used I bet you can’t get as high as 500 bands so remember the challenge and what your favourite braclets are 2 braclets

    Bye for now I’ll message again later!!!????????????????????????????????

  30. Amber says:

    I never knew how to do this , only the single , I’m looking forward to getting another set as I lost mine and I’m going to try the Bonbon , to impress my friends !!!

  31. Jessica says:

    Actually, they did post some video tutorials. It should be on the same page as this on the suggested part saying ‘how to make the 8’ or something. They did post it.

  32. Paula says:

    Every time I tried the flower loom band every time the loom bands just kept breaking. I tried 8 times and with new bands every time and they still broke. So I quit now trying that one.

  33. Molly says:

    I’ve been looking on YouTube to find out how u make a starburst bracelet. It came up with lots but all of the boards have like a triangle thing at the bottom with an arrow and I’ve only got a straight one with them cemi circle thingys on so please help πŸ™ THANKS GUYS! Molly????

  34. Geeza says:

    Hello Molly all u hav to do is lift the middle section and hold the rest. It should come out and u can then move it to make the triangular end. Have fun looming and remember. A good loom is a bloody hard one!

  35. #yollo#lol says:

    Thank you for making these turtoluils, sorry I’m not so shore on my spelling, they are much better then the hour or two video clips, thank you for speeding them up. Now five down and 3 more to go, I can make the five in about five to ten minutes.

  36. Linuxgirl says:

    For everyone who thinks their pegs are wrong or who doesnt have an arrow, I found a solution!
    Changing the pegs: You can just take out the middle row and click it back on so you can switch from ===== to -_-_- anytime you want
    Finding out how you need to hold the loomboard(if it’s calles like that): Watch the video and carefully watch the pegs: they can be like ) or like (

    Hope this helped, bye!

  37. hayley says:

  58. elizabeth Mary Muir says:

    hi elizabeth Mary Muir
    You can get them almost anywhere these days; at an arts & crafts shop in your mall is the most common one though. I heard one of my friends got her kit in Target & I got mine from Us, but you should hurry because they run out very quickly, the looms are incredibly popular for 25-27 year olds!??

    camitheflower, hayley, linuxgirl, geeza & molly give me to place to write.

  60. Davona R. says:
