Get creative and have fun with Bandaloom / Review

Maryam Z | 10:03 PM | | | |

Bandaloom is a fun and creative way to make jewelry, keychains and much more. It's perfect for kids and even adults as well! I'm always looking for fun ways to get creative with my kids and this is just the thing. I remember seeing a commercial on TV for Bandaloom and it had me at "Hello", lol. I was given an amazing opportunity to review the Bandaloom.



I received the following:
  • Bandaloom Kit - Comes with the Bandaloom, Mini Loom, Look Hook, 40 S Clips, 1000 Rainbow Collection Bands, Heart Charm, Star Charm, Smiley Bff Charm, I Love you Charm, Storage Case and Instructions.
  • Bandaloom Glitter Collection Bands - 2200 Color Bands, 100 Clips, Carrying Case
  • Bandaloom Tie Dye Collection Bands - 1000 Color Bands, 100 Clips, Carrying Case
  • Bandaloom Neon Glow in the Dark Bands - 2200 Color Bands, 100 Clips, Carrying Case
  • Alphabet Charms


In this photo, I am demonstrating how to make a Single Bracelet. This bracelet is the easiest bracelet to make with the loom. My oldest figured out how to do this one pretty quick after seeing me do it for the first time. The first thing you need to do is choose the colors that you would like for this band. Next, have the arrows on the loom face away from you. Once you have the loom positioned in the right direction, you can start adding the bands. When it comes to adding the bands, you want to do a zig-zag and make sure that each color is overlapping one another.

Once that is complete, turn your loom around to where the arrows are facing you. Another way to tell that the loom is in the right direction is by looking at the pegs on the loom. When the arrows are facing away from you, the pegs are rounded. When the arrows are facing you, the tabs are straight. The reason why the pegs are flat on one end is because this is where the hook fits in making it easier to grab the band when weaving. Now that the loom is turned around, grab your hook and begin weaving the bands. Always remember that you start with the second band and NOT the first. In the image, I grabbed the blue band from the second peg and placed it on the third peg.

From there, take the orange band from the third peg and pull it over to the fourth peg. Repeat the step till you have reached the top of the loom. Once you have completed that, the orange should be on one side and the blue on the other. Grab an S clip and clip one end of the bracelet. It would be better to clip the end that finished last because than the bracelet won't come apart when you are pulling it off the loom. Once you pull the bracelet off of the loom, clip the other end and you have a bracelet. It's a lot easier to make than what I described, lol.


Here I am using the mini loom to make a Single Bracelet. This is super easy! 


Right here I made a Crystal Bracelet. It's similar to making a single bracelet, but instead of using two rows on the loom, you are using three.


Here are a few other designs I've done. I found a lot of great videos on Youtube. They have videos from intermediate to advanced. To be honest, I like doing the impossible because it's challenging, lol. I tried showing my neighbors daughter how to make some of the more complicating designs and she got confused. To me it's not that hard, but to others it's impossible.


This right here is one of my first attempts at making a necklace. It came out better than I thought it would since this was my first time making one. I think it came out pretty darn sweet! My daughter loves wearing this necklace around the house and when we go out. She calls it her "Princess necklace". The thing I love about the Bandaloom is how versatile it is and there is an endless amount of things you can do with it. You can pretty much make anything and everything with the Bandaloom!
