In this Instructable, I will show you how to make an adjustable paracord bracelet. I got the idea of making it adjustable when my parents got me an adjustable bracelet from New York. I have never seen an instructable on how to do this yet, so here I go. I will be showing how to make a bracelet adjustable from 7"-9"

*** I will not show how to make a heart like in the first picture in this instructable. If I get any requests, I may make an instructable on how to add the heart, cross, or awareness ribbon. ***

I also have these for sale for those of you who do not have the time or materials to make these in my Etsy shop (They are custom-order, so you pick the colors and design in the middle (heart, cross, ribbon)): http://www.etsy.com/shop/adambowker98 or more specifically here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98922019/adjustable-paracord-bracelet-with-design

Step 1: Ingredients

What you'll need for this project :

Up to 3 colors of Paracord to make it with {Read on for lengths; I'm using white as the core, red as the middle, and black as the edge}
Lighter to burn the ends of things
Scissors to cut things
Ruler to measure things
<p>Thank you! I made 16 of these for my sons hockey team for their holiday gift bags. These are their team colors. I can't wait for them to see them!</p>
<p>That's awesome! :) I know they'll enjoy them!</p>
<p>Can you plz try to make a video or explain more briefly.</p>
I made one out of Urban Camo and Harmony and adjustable from 7 1/2&quot; to 9 1/2&quot;. Doesn't look too bad for my first attempt. Thanx again for the instructable.
<p>Very nice! I love that color. Great job :)</p>
<p>Not a great ible. Advertised as a heart design. Didn't show how to make the heart which I was looking for.</p>
I'm sorry you feel that way. I hope that single detail didn't ruin the Instructable for you, and I hope you found the vast majority of the Instructable useful (how to create the actual adjustable bracelet). The heart is very simple, and I'll try to explain it in words. You need a small length of paracord (1 foot will be plenty) and needle-nose pliers. You simply put the pliers through a loop on the bracelet (they're yellow in my picture) and pull the paracord through. Repeat this through each loop of the design you want. For the heart, you'll go through 4 loops at the top, and put both ends through a single loop at the bottom. then cut them fairly close and use a lighter to burn the ends and hold it in place.<br>Hope that helps! :)<br>Adam
<p>I'm so glad you took the time in explaining that for me. Thank you. Helped a lot, I will post an &quot;I made it!&quot; comment and if you could tell me if it is good or not, that would be great! Thank you, AM1</p>
<p>No problem :) Definitely post the &quot;I Made It!&quot; once you finish! </p>
I love it, thanks!
I really like this style of Paracord Bracelet. I didn't want to use buckles and want to thank you for posting this instructable. Now - all I gotta' do is attempt it and see what happens, lol.<br>Big1011Guy
Great idea on the adjustability, I'm going to try this. Thanks!
Ok, so if you are interested in - http://eparacord.com this is my website, (i am administrator) - please register here. It's small network dedicated to paracord, later we will grow it with other additional relevant content, cause we just start it few months ago. But from the right now you can post any information about cord, instructions, photos, blogs and so on. If anyone has it's own site - we can exchange links.
Adambowker98 (author) says: <br>Ok, cool. I'll try to make an 'ible later today if I have some free time. You promised - where is result? <br>Hey, could you check the quality of this http://eparacord.com/pages/paracordbracelet instructions?
Sorry, forgot all about that! Besides, with school starting I haven't really had time. And I've seen that video before and it does a great job of explaining things.
Great project. You have really good pictures. The explanations are nicely detailed. Thanks! Keep up the good work.
Could you post a how-to on making a heart in the bracelet? I've followed your tutorial on the normal bracelet and it came out great, but I'd like to try one with a heart in it too. Thanks!
Sure! I'll work on that once I get home on Sunday. (I'm on vacation right now, hehe.) And the heart is pretty easy to put on a bracelet or to add to a bracelet you've already made.<br><br>-Adam
Just want to say thanks for the instructable brother. I've just completed my first paracord bracelet thanks to you. In my own opinion it turned out great.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad it worked for you!
Nicely done. I would like to see a heart/ribbon -ible, I have thought about trying it but I haven't had the time to work it out.
Ok, cool. I'll try to make an 'ible later today if I have some free time.
