The Bell Charm

Hi guys! Christmas is coming pretty soon, actually in a month, so I thought I’d do a couple of Christmas related loom band pages and posts for Christmas designs. I’ve got another coming up next week – the angel charm, and this week it’s the bell! This is in text form, so everyone can read it. Here it is!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • A loom or monster tail
  • A hook
  • Bands – this time it’s the same for everyone, 49 yellow bands and 13 yellow bands, 62 in total
  • An S Clip or C Clip

METHOD:

  1. Begin with your loom in the staggered configuration, or if you have a monster tail, in any position you like.
  2. You will start by placing single yellow bands with a twist in the middle on each peg for your monster tail, or for a loom, turning out to the left, then the right, going down the sides twice, then turning in on either side. This is layer 1.
  3. Place single yellow bands with no twist on top of all the others. This is layer 2.
  4. Loop up the bottom two yellow bands from each peg, taking them in towards the middle.
  5. Place single yellow bands with no twist on top of the remaining two bands on each peg, so you now have four on each peg. This is layer 3.
  6. Loop up the bottom two yellow bands, taking them in towards the middle. A web pattern will start to form in the middle.
  7. Continue placing and looping bands until you have placed layer 7 and looped layer 6. Now you will take the two bands from every peg onto your hook, making sure they don’t slip off the pegs in the process. Slide a single yellow band through them all, and keep it on your hook.
  8. Now switch to your red bands. Use your hook and make a single chain going up the way. Once you have used all 13 bands, S Clip or C Clip the end.
  9. Attach the other end of the S or C Clip to a couple of bands from the top of the bell. Adjust some bands around the bottom and squeeze your bell to a perfect shape. Ta da! You have a bell. Perfect for hanging on your Christmas tree.

Have you got any other ornament ideas! Leave me a comment! I’ll be posting the angel design next week, so come back next week for another Christmas tree design!
