Rainbow Loom Band Pencil Toppers

These cute little pom poms made from Rainbow Loom bands are the perfect little toppers for your pencils! The rainbow colored pom pom is my favorite, but it’s fun to mix and match the colors too!

Stack on the toppers for more pom pom fun! Make one in every color and gift them to your friends!

Start by adding your loom bands onto your loom hook. You can layer them in a specific pattern or just random colors. We’re making a rainbow pattern pom pom topper! I used 15 bands of every color for the rainbow topper – 90 bands total. TIP: you can use less, just depends on the thickness of your pom pom, see below for a comparison.

With 2 more loom bands, we’re using black, thread them through each other to make a longer band – this will be your connector for the stack of loom bands you just made. Cross one band on top of the other, grab both of the inside sides of each band, and pull through tight.

Move all the bands over to your longer band. You can simply tip it down and they should fall right onto the long loom band. TIP: Be sure to hold the other end of the long loom band in place so the bands don’t fall off.

Add a C or S clip to both ends of your long loom band to secure the bands in place.
