Step 1: Supplies
Paracord (I used 550 cord)
A belt buckle of some type (Doesn't really matter, whatever you think would look best)
And some good belt weaving music, I chose the Old Crow Medicine Show.
Oh, and maybe some M&M's too. Those are always great when doing tedious things such as this.
Step 2: Measuring.
But basically, You need alot of cordage. Alot.
Rather than the waist measurement and doubling, you might do good to triple this measurement instead, possibly quadruple to be safe.
after you have cut your mega long cord, Do this five more times, You should end up with 6 mega long strands, More if you want it thicker than this belt, less if you want it thinner.
Also, you can use any variation of colors you like.
Also also, If your strands are too short for whatever reason (like mine were) just cut some more, and burn that end onto the current end of the too short strand, You can weave where it was fused together into the back of the belt so it will not be seen.
Step 3: Getting It Set Up to Weave
Take your 6 mega long strands (or however many you ended up wanting to use) and clip them together at the end. This will be your top/Weave starting point 2.0.
Step 4: Get Your Weave On!
It's now time to start the weaving process.
Do you recall making friendship bracelets when you were younger? Yes, it is that one basic weave, the one everyone always learns first, that we will be using today.
Here I have embedded a video of me weaving it, in case the photos confuse you (I learn better from videos than I do photos half the time.)
Step 5: Just Keep Weaving, Weaving, Weaving.
Step 6: Finishing Up
Also, if there are any M&M's left, Eat them, you need the extra chocolate boost after all that weaving!
