Project Instructions

  • 1
    Follow instructions for creating Basic Stretch Band Bracelet using a crochet hook or stretch band tool. Basic steps are shown here.
  • 2
    Determine how many letters will be needed for the bracelet. You want to try and center it as much as possible, but it’ is okay if your letters are not exactly in the middle. Tip: add a button clasp that will make the bracelet even more special.
  • 3
    To add the first letter bead, push stretch band through the hole in the bead. Tip: set up the letter beads with the bands before starting the bracelet.
  • 4
    Looking at the letter, add the loop that is to the left of the letter onto the hook.
  • 5
    Put your finger through the other loop to hold the bead on. Pull bands already on hook through the band with the bead on it. Fold over the other end of the band with the bead on it to the hook.
  • 6
    Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all the letters. It is important to make sure the beads are all added on the same way (adding the loop to the left of the bead on first) so that the letters will all be in the right direction (and not upside down!).
  • 7
    After adding the letters, continue adding on stretch bands until it is to the length you need. Add a button on as a clasp or a stretch band clasp.
  • 8
    Note: to add on the button clasp, string on button to last band. Pull the ends of the band over the button to lock it in place.
  • 9
    To make a fuller looking bracelet, use two bands at a time. The 7mm beads have a larger hole to allow two bands to be pushed through the bead.
