Project Instructions

  • 1
    Follow directions for creating a basic stretch band bracelet with a crochet hook, stretch band tool or loom. Place clasp on end of bracelet and put aside.
  • 2
    Run needle and thread through the rhinestone disc. Pick up a stretch band and insert needle back through the hole of the disc. Pull on the two ends of the thread to pull the stretch bands through the loop. Remove needle and thread. Repeat for all discs.

    Adding the beads to the bracelet can be done a few ways. Pick up the disc with stretch band and place the two loops together. Stretch the loops to create a larger circle and place onto the bracelet. Move down the bracelet. Repeat until all discs are on bracelet.

    The other way to add on multiple discs at a time is to place both loops of each band with rhinestone disc onto a crochet hook or knitting needle. Place the last loop of the bracelet onto the hook or needle and then move the loops and discs over the bracelet loop and onto the bracelet. Hold onto the end of the bracelet and move the discs down the bracelet. Repeat until all discs are on the bracelet.

    A holiday twist…instead of the rhinestone discs, string jingle bells onto the bands and then the bracelet (3/8 inch or larger). Everyone will know you are there to spread holiday spirit!
