We have been playing with our rainbow loom bands and coming up with new ways to craft with them. We still love our Rainbow Loom Pencil Toppers! I thought I’d try to use a few pipe cleaners with these loom bands to make a rainbow loom band pom pom as well – so cute!
These are so simple and easy to make, you’ll have a blast crafting. And you’ll be able to use up all those extra loom bands you might have lying around, those colors you never use!
Supplies for Rainbow Loom Pipe Cleaner Pom Poms:
- rainbow loom bands
- pipe cleaners – any color
Cut your pipe cleaner in half to 6 inches in length.
Gather 50-75 loom bands, depending on how thick you want your pom.
Add your loom bands onto the center of your pipe cleaner, holding your hand on the end so they don’t fall off. You can add these in a random order, all mixed matched, or plan a pattern with specific colors.
Press all the bands toward the center of the pipe cleaner. Fold your pipe cleaner in half and tightly twist it at the base of the gathered loom bands. Continue to twist the pipe cleaner all the way down.
Make all sizes and shapes, changing up the size of your pipe cleaner and the amount of loom bands you add.
Now if you want to make your pipe cleaner pom poms a little fluffier, give your pom pom a trim. Once you’ve tightly twisted your pipe cleaner around your loom bands, use scissors to cut through the center of each loom band.
Now you have a more fluffy looking flower pom pom!
