Follow the tutorial to make these groovy 'Rainbow' necklace, using your Rubber Band Loom Kit.

Step 1

Take your Loom and wrap one band in an ‘infinity’ ∞ shape onto two pegs on the same row and push it down to the bottom of the pegs. Then add 2 more bands. You should have the bottom band as the first three colours in your rainbow pattern using the bands you have.

Step 2

To start creating your Fishtail braid, take your hook and pull one side of the bottom ‘infinity’ shaped band up and over to the top. Repeat this on the opposite side. You should then add another band, keeping the pattern going in the rainbow formation. You should have three bands on the loom at all times when hooking. Remember, every time you hook a band from the bottom, you should add another band that is going to follow the colour of the band directly at the top of the two bands at the top.

Step 3

Repeat this process until you have achieved the length of braid that you want. Aim for around 23 inches as a guide length. To finish your braid, remove your bracelet from the loom and carefully pull out the top two bands that have not been hooked over. Then attach each side of the last hooked loom band to an S-Clip. Connect the first loop at the beginning of the band to the other side of the S-Clip.
