Sophie has devised a wonderful way to make use of all those rubber bands left over from your old Rainbow Loom projects. With just a few pins and a styrofoam ball she creates beautiful holiday ornaments.
2 inch styrofoam ball
small colored rubber bands
ball headed pins
Place two pins on opposite sides of your styrofoam ball.
Begin stretching rubber bands between the pins.
Make a pattern by stretching multiple rubber bands around the pins and circling the ball.
After adding a few more rubber bands, add more pins to the ball.
Begin adding rubber bands between those pins.
At this point you can start experimenting with the shapes of the rubber bands - make triangles by connecting the rubber band to three pins.
Make diamonds by connecting it to four pins.
Add a few more pins.
Contonue creating the shapes and the ornament you like by adding more pins and rubber bands.
I used two paper clips to create the hanger. Straighten one paper clip and open the other just slightly.
Bend the straight paper clip into a U-shape.
Push the U shape down into your ball. Slide the other paperclip over the inserted clip to create your hanger.
