The Best Rainbow Loom Bracelet Video Tutorials

By  | 

So… let me guess. Your kid is obsessed with his new rainbow loom.

And you don’t have a clue how to help.

Not to worry, there are hundreds of 12-year-old girls on YouTube that can teach you how to make a totally super cool rainbow loom bracelet.


When our loom first arrived, I made the mistake of watching about 15 videos that taught me nothing (except that I’m glad I’m no longer a teenager.)

So I’ve taken the pain and agony out of it for you. I’m sharing my favorite (least annoying) YouTube rainbow loom patterns.

the best rainbow loom bracelet videos and tutorials

And here’s an added bonus (in case you haven’t figured it out): you can just give your kids the computer with this page open – and let them find and watch all of the tutorial videos themselves!

You’re welcome!

Let’s start with some simple designs:

The most basic is the Single pattern

Once you’ve mastered that, it’s time to move on to the Mini Rainbow design

The Diamond pattern is the next step

Try the Single Rhombus

…and then the Double Rhombus

If you can do those patterns, you should be able to create a Triple Link Bracelet

Here is an Inverted Fish Tail design

After that, give this one a try: the Raindrop design

The Starburst pattern is advanced.

Did you know the Rainbow Loom isn’t just for bracelets and rings?

You can make a Rainbow Loom handbag!

These Basic Barefoot Sandals might have to wait ’til spring…

These Rainbow Loom Fishtail Earrings would make a great gift!

These small Christmas trees would be great as earrings or as tree ornaments, depending on their size

Did you know you can also make pencil grippers?

    OMG, this is going to make my kids (and my) day! They are obsessed with these tutorials. My daughter was watching one the other day which I guess wasn’t very good and she said, “I mean she doesn’t explain it very well, but they didn’t need to call her the B-word in the comments!”
