Step 1

Get the kids and their friends together to make these super cool Glow Halloween Bracelets! They can make several for themselves or trade them for a unique bracelet stack!

Step 1 For the paracord knot bracelet, measure and cut a 72" length and 24" length from your glow cord.

Step 2 Tie a double overhand knot about 6" from one end of your 24" cord. This will be your base, center cord.

Step 3 Tape the cord to your working space, above the knot.

Step 4 Find the center of your 72" cord by folding it in half and tie it onto the center cord.

TIP: The cord that is on the left side will be (A) and the cord on the right side will be (B).

Step 5 Bring one of the A strand sides up and cross the D strands horizontally in front, making a loop on one side.

Step 6 With the other long side of the A strand, wrap it around the first long paracord, on the opposite side of the loop. Insert the end of the second A strand through the loop of the first piece of the A strand and pull tight.

Step 7 Continue the braid by alternating the loops, front then back, until you reach the desired length. After a few braids, slide a pony bead onto your base cords the continue your braid around the bead.

Step 8 Tie a double overhand knot just below your last paracord knot. Add a dab of glue at the top of the excess strands just as they come out of the knot. Let dry.

Step 9 Push the excess A and B strands aside. Cut each end of the center strand to about 3½" from each knot at the top and bottom of your pattern. Bring the ends around so your bracelet is in a round shape and crisscross the strands in the center.

Step 10 Cut a 12" piece of cord and tie it over the crisscross of the D strands, holding them together.

Step 11 Make about five paracord knots around the two crisscrossed ends. Tie the ends in the back of the paracord knot. Add a dab of glue over this knot. Be careful not to get glue on the cords inside the paracord knots. Let glue dry.

Step 12 Tie a knot to the end of each excess cord to keep it from sliding through the paracord knot.

Step 13 Trim all excess strands.

Step 14 For the two simple Rainbow Loom® bracelets, thread about 17-18 rubber bands through pony beads.

Step 15 Place a rubber band across your pointer and middle finger with a twist in the center. Place a second rubber band across the same two fingers without a twist.

Step 16 With your hook, take the bottom rubber band, move it over the finger and place it in the center. Repeat on the other finger.

TIP: The first rubber band is now off of both fingers but wrapped around the second rubber band in the center.

Step 17 Place a rubber band with a pony bead across the two fingers where the pony bead is suspended between the two fingers. Repeat Step 16.

Step 18 Repeat Steps 16-17 with alternating rubber bands between without a pony bead and with a pony bead until you reach the desired bracelet length.

Step 19 Use a plastic clip to close the bracelet.
