Picture of Easy Bracelet (Last-Minute Fathers' Day Gift)
What can you give your dad when you can't get to the shops without him, but you can get in his shed?

Two bits of paracord, a lump of technoscrap, and some Scouting know-how, and you have a gift fit for any cool dad.

Step 1: What you need.

Picture of What you need.
It's really easy - two pieces of narrow paracord, left over from something else, and something small with a hole in it.

I used a ceramic thing that came out of a computer, but you could use anything that's the right size and has a hole in it.  Maybe cut a piece of wood and drill it.

could i also make this a necklace for myself? i love how the tied part looks when its done but how well will it stay tied together? would i have to keep tightening it?

Conker-X is offline right now.

Yes, it could easily make a necklace. If you pull the overhand knots tight, they stay very well, especilly if you use a natural-fibre cord.

I like the design and I hate to be a Health and Safety freak, but for a necklace I'd make sure it can break away somehow just in case it snarls up on something, maybe using a proper catch rather than knots.
