Gather all your supplies :D
Take your first two bands and place them on the first two sets of pegs on the center like this. Start at the bottom.
Go up 3 pegs and place another band.
Place another green one below the third green one. Make sure you do it below and not on top of it.
Starting from the center peg, place one band to the left.
Take another band and place it on top of the other band.
Get one more band and place it to the right. Finish placing bands around in a circle in a clockwise position.
Here is the complete circle. Grab one more green band.
Place it were you see my red band. This is just to show contrast and were you should place the band. It gets hard to see when it's the same color. Make sure you place a band of the same color :).
A side view of what you should have.
Now grab your bands for the starburst color. Place your first one like this.
Going clockwise let's put the rest of the bands on. These steps are very important to completing your starburst. They have to be put on this way or you will have issues looping the starburst.
The third band
The fourth band
The fifth band
And the sixth and final band
Take one band and wrap it around your hook 3 times. This is our capping band that will be going in the middle of the flower.
Place it here.
It's time to start looping. Flip your loom around and let's get to it :)
Push back your capping band and hook the 1st band on top. Loop it to the left.
It should look like this. If we put the bands in the right order we should not have any problems looping the rest of the bands. We will be looping in a counter-clockwise position.
Reach back into the center and grab the next one on top.
Take the next band on top and go down. Continue looping the bands in order.
Your flower should look like this.
Reach in this peg and grab the 1st green one on top.
Loop it to the center left. Reach in the next peg and grab the next band.
Continue in a counter-clockwise position working your way around the body of the starburst.
And now we are done with the body.
Reach in the center peg and loop the first half of the ring base.
This is what it will look like.
Now let's loop the other half. This will be a little tricky since we are looping backwards.
And that's done
Reach in the last peg and create a slip knot. Grab the band that's on the bottom and pull it through the band on top. Take the band that is left in the peg and let it go. Pull the other band tighter.
And there is your slip knot.
C-clip the other band at the top. And now it's time to pull it off.
A side view
And there you have it. A wonderful starburst ring.
I hope you all enjoyed this guide. Continue scrolling for another version of a starburst ring. Start at step 2 and work your way to step 9.
Get 6 bands and 6 pony beads of any color
Pinch your band and put it through the pony bead
Do this to all the bands and beads
Just like in steps 11-16 we are going to place the bands. This time we have beads on the bands.
All the bands placed.
Add a capping band and flip your loom. It's time to start looping.
Grab the first band on top and loop it to the left. Flow the counter-clockwise motion and loop the rest of the bands.
Then work the body or border of the starburst.
Loop the first base of the ring.
Loop the second base and make your slip knot at the end.
Attach your c-clip and pull your ring off the loom.
And there you have it. A beaded starburst ring.
Here are just a few I have made so far :D
I really hope you enjoyed this guide on how to make Starburst rings. I'm sorry it's a bit long but I don't like to leave out steps. If you have any request please don't hesitate to ask :D.
