How To Make Paracord Bracelet
To make a DIY paracord bracelet you will need:
- paracord (up to 2 m (6,5 feet) of parakord for each 10 cm (4 inches) of bracelet);
Slightly burn the ends of paracord to prevent it from untwining. Now attach the paracord to the buckles making four loops. Use the long part of the paracord.
Take the string and make a loop. Pull it through four first loops so it measures 5 cm (2 inches). Then pull the loops tight moving from right to left.
Slightly loosen four loops. Using a pincer pull other three loops between each pair of loops. Left the fourth loop aside. Turn the loops’ left parts up. Then pull the long part of paracord through four loops as shown in the step 2.
Finish the first row pulling the loops tight moving from right to left. To make a nice bracelet make sure that all the loops are the same size and are not twisted. Don’t pull the loops too tight.
Then repeat steps 2, 3 and 4.
When you’ve reached the desired length, pull the long end of paracord through the last row to the right. Make intervals between loops. Make sure you attach paracord to the right side of buckle; otherwise, you won’t be able to connect it with the first buckle.
Make three more loops around the buckle.
You can finish your survival bracelet doing one of the following:
insert the end into one of the loops, then burn it with a lighter;
do the same but don’t burn the end, make a knot.
The second option is more convenient as you won’t need any special tools to undo the bracelet (e.g. scissors).
