Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
For this collar you will need: Paracord (one or two colors), A buckle, scissors, a D-Ring, Measuring tape and matches or a lighter.

Step 2: Mesuring Your Dogs Neck

Start off by measuring your dogs neck with a flexible measuring tape, or measure his/her old collar. For every inch of collar you will need a foot of paracord, for example I am making a 16" collar (it would be 15" if it wasn't for my dogs abundance of left over skin) I will need 16' of paracord. If you are using two colors use 8' of each color if it is a 16" collar. When you have made the collar you should be able to fit two fingers into it easily but not to loose to fall off. (PS I am not choking my dog that is just what he looks like) :)

Step 3: Cut And Burn

When you have it measured cut it at your marked point. Once you have cut it the end is going to be frizzy so put it over a flame until it is kind of like syrup, then wet your fingers and dab it. Make sure that you pinch it flat enough to fit in the buckle.

IMPOTANT: Don’t pinch and hold on you could burn your fingers just dab it. If you are using two colors melt both of them at the same time and pinch them together.

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Finding The Middle

Match the two ends together and run your hand down the segment to find the middle, when you find it make a crease in it. I will show in the next step why you need the middle.

Step 5: Getting It Ready

Start by inserting the ends if the paracord into the bottom of the female end of the buckle. Pull it through till there is a loop at the end. Then put the ends through that loop and pull it tight, make sure again that the ends are even.

definitely going to try this one you made it seem quite simple. that's how you know it's a good I'ble. your sweet dogs face while you're measuring his neck could be one of those great "what's he thinking" caption thingy.
