Rainbow Elastic Band Bracelets - Arts and Crafts

Rainbow Elastic Band Bracelets
We went to JoAnn Fabric and bought three bags of rainbow elastic bands and the plastic closure thingys.

I didn't want to buy a loom so we followed the YouTube directions

They went together nicely thanks to an excellent tutorial but we couldn't get the same plastic closure ring. The one we bought was oval and open on one end. The bands kept sliding out of the plastic loop so we tried knotting the bracelets but it looked sloppy.

Rainbow Elastic Band Bracelet with metal jump ring
Metal jumps rings made a sturdy closure. The bags go a lot further than you might think, We still have half of the loops and all of the plastic closures.
