Loose your loom?  Did it break?  Or maybe you just don’t want to pay $20.  Here is a way to make your own rainbow loom for free or very cheap, but I am sure most of you will have these items available in your home already.

Items you will need:

  • Pattern ( you can download it here loom layout)
  • Scrap wood (we used small section of a 2 x 4)
  • Couple of nails
  • Hammer

The bracelets that we make the most often need just 2, 3, or 6 pegs. 

You will need to print the pattern page using the link above, and cut the patterns apart.  Select the design that you need.  For the example here, we will make the one with 3 pegs, so that would be the triangle pattern.  You will simply lay the pattern on your piece of wood and hammer the nails at the points on the triangle (marked by the red dots).  Make sure the nails are in far enough to hold the rubber bands.


Here are the looms my family has made.
