Take a rubber band, twist to a figure 8 and layer over each starburst center peg and the end peg (pegs B2, B4, B6, B8, B10, B12, B14, B16, B18 and B19). Push down.

Turn the loom around so the direction of the red arrow is pointing down (or toward you).

Take the hook, go through the peg (B19) and get under the rubber bands. Grab the top band (below the cap band) and move it from B19 to B18.

Step 8

With your hook, reach inside peg B18, grab the top rubber band and move it to its corresponding peg (from where the bottom half of the band is wrapped). Continue this around the starburst.

Step 9

Repeat the pattern in Step 8 up the loom for each starburst.

Step 10

Go back down to peg B19 and move the border bands forward, up the pegs to secure the bands.

Step 11

Attach a C-clip to the rubber band on B19.

Step 5 Image

Step 12

Reach into peg B1 and grab a new rubber band with your hook. While holding one end of the band, pull the other up through the peg. Place the side you are holding onto the hook. Add a C-clip.

Carefully remove the starburst headband from the loom by pulling and rocking it back and forth.
