If you have been paying attention lately, you may have noticed quite a few people wearing rubber band bracelets. These colorful pieces of rubber are ridiculously easy to make and inexpensive to buy, which is probably one of the main reasons that they have become a popular fixture around the wrists of all types of people. Guys and girls, young and old, these accessories are sure to be around for a long time.
The funny thing about the popularity of rubber band bracelets is the fact that they were not just introduced. People have been wearing them for years, but they have recently become a lot more popular. They are versatile and can be found in many colors. The good thing is that you can always make one in the color of your choice if you cannot find one in the store. Don’t worry about finding one that is in your size since they can stretch to accommodate the average person.
If you run a program for youths and you have been looking for a great activity to show them, making rubber band bracelets would be a great idea. Most arts and crafts stores sell kits that have all of the supplies you would need to make these creations. The designs are created with the use of a loom. These kits retail for less than $20, so there is no need to invest a significant amount of money. Most of the kits that are available on the market are able to be refilled. Buying the refills is a bit cheaper than the original purchase, and in most cases you can make just as many bracelets.
Since the bracelets are so popular, it would be a great idea to use that to your advantage. If you are able to create a lot of them, you could use them to make a small fortune. This is a great fundraising idea for a small school or church group. While you probably will not get rich from selling these, everyone will have a lot of fun making them and the buyers will love showing off their cool, colorful wrist bands.
The idea of making these bracelets may be a bit more than you have bargained for. If this is the case, you can find them at your local accessory store. There are many large clothing store chains that sell these as well. Be mindful of where you purchase them since some stores may try to charge you a bit more than they are worth. Look at each one you intend to buy in order to gauge the amount of craftsmanship put into it.
You don’t want to be left out of the loop, so you should go out and get a rubber band bracelet. It doesn’t matter if you plan to buy a kit so you can make your own or buy one that was made by someone else. Either way the idea is to find one you love, put it on and show it off to the world.
