Supplies you need to make this Easy DIY Bracelet
1. Small rubber bands. (Yeah! i used rubber bands to connect the beads together as you will soon see!)

3. Two pencils.
4. A hook.
Steps to make this Easy DIY Bracelet
Watch the video at the top of this post or follow the below instructions! 🙂
Take one rubber band and one bead. Now, pass the rubber band through the bead’s hole. Do the same thing for all the rubber bands and beads. (If you find this part boring, ask your hubby or someone else to help. My husband found it kind of stress relief for him. lol )
Take two pencils to start making the chain. You don’t really have to use pencils for this. You can even use your fingers. But i would recommend using pencils as it is easier.
Put a twisted empty rubber band through both of them.
Next, put a beaded rubber band. You don’t have to twist the rubber bands now onwards. Pull the lower band on both the sides and take it over the pencil to put it on top of the upper band.
Repeat the process of putting beaded rubber bands and pulling lower band to the top of the upper band. You will soon start seeing a nice pattern being made.
Stop this process when you reach your desired length of chain. Now, put another empty rubber band through the pencils. Make sure you don’t twist it.
Attach hook between the empty rubber bands at both the ends and remove the pencils. Voila! The Easy DIY Bracelet is ready! Wasn’t it fun? 🙂
