If you still don't know how to weave a flower from rubber bands, arm yourself with your favorite loom and detailed instructions - and get down to business! Below are the detailed descriptions for making beautiful flower pendants in two different ways.
Beginner needlewomen, as a rule, feel uncomfortable alone with complex machines like "Moon Lum" or "Rainbow Lum". It is much easier to understand how to weave a flower from elastic bands on a slingshot or only on a hook. At the same time, pendants made on the simplest machines and with a single crochet often look even more luxurious than products masterfully woven on the "Moon Lum" or the multimodal traditional "Rainbow Lum".
To make a beautiful little thing that can decorate any handmade bracelet, take the multi-colored rubber bands from the ready-made kit and two plastic hooks.
- Throw two red elastic bands on the hook and insert the second tool into them so thattension has developed.
- Twist the "Fanny Lum" into a figure eight, keeping both hooks in a perfectly vertical position.
- Pry off two red elastic bands with the right hook, drop all the loops from the tool on them. Repeat the same steps with the second hook.
- Throw the first rubber band from the tool on the left to the right hook.
Building a petal
- Very soon you will understand how to weave a flower from elastic bands correctly. Hook two yellow "Fanny Lum" with the right hook and drop only the first couple of loops on them.
- Translate the yellow loop from the right tool to the left tool.
- Pry off two green rubber bands with right crochet, drop all loops, repeat on the left side.
- Transfer all loops to one hook, gradually adding two purple and two blue rubber bands.
- Pry a pair of red rubber bands with the tool and drop all the loops on them. The first petal is ready.
Collecting a flower
- Weave five petals and transfer them to one hook. Pry two red Fanny Lum with the tool.
- Reset all loops to new rubber bands.
- Pull the left loop from the hook through the right loop. The result is a pendant loop.
Now you know how to weave a flower from elastic bands with a simple crochet.
Suspension on the machine "Rainbow Lum"
Having learned how to make simple jewelry, needlewomen usually move on to mastering classic weaving looms. The most popular of themremains the traditional "Rainbow Lum". To make a flower on it for decorating stationery or ready-made bracelets, take rubber bands of three colors, a loom and a hook.
Where to start
- To learn from your own experience how to weave flowers from rubber bands on a loom, pick up the Rainbow Lum and move the center row one column. Then make a hexagon with the rubber bands of the first color (for example, red) and lower it down.
- Throw rubber bands of the second color (say blue) on the posts from the center to the edges of the hexagon.
- Draw "Fanny Lum" in the third color (yellow for example) in the same way as the first.
- Take a blue rubber band and wind it around the center post three times, then pull out Fanny Lum on the center post one by one. Weave the flower petals from the center to the columns of the hexagon.
- Knit red row.
- Make three loops, return to the starting point and add three more loops in the same way.
- Tighten the new yellow rubber band to serve as a keychain loop.
- Remove the key chain from the machine. Now the flower can be used as a decoration for a pen, pencil or felt-tip pen. It is also suitable for decorating bracelets and as the main part of a keychain or phone.
If you are interested in other ways of making such pendants or you wantexperiment and independently figure out how to weave a flower from rubber bands on any of the existing machines, go for it! Your creative freedom is determined by your imagination and resourcefulness.
