Today I will show you how to make a paracord keychain.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need 4 to 5 feet of para cord a key ring a lighter and some scissors

Step 2: Starting Out

Once you get your para cord measured fold cord in half like so then loop key ring through the cord then pull tight

Step 3: Start Weaving

When you find your desired length start braiding when your at the fourth picture pull tight

Step 4: Your Second Braid

Again when you get to the fourth picture pull tight

Step 5: Countinuing Your Braids

Repeat step 3 and 4 back and forth until you reach your desired length

Step 6: Finishing Up

Cut remaining pieces of paracord off then burn

Step 7: Finished

And there's a finished paracord key chain
<p>why do mine keep coming out twisted? (like a drill bit)</p>
<p>I really like the bracelet version. But, now I have a long one of these until I find instructions for the bracelet. When we go camping we'll practice making and unmaking this, so when we need a rope it'll be really handy.</p>
<p>Here's my Version</p>
<p>its nice to make this key chain</p>
<p>excellent tutorial, i found it useful to leave a couple of millimeters at the end of the paracord and melt it between the last braids.</p>
<p>great instrucable, good for for any sized key chain :)</p>
that was easy and looks good too
Thanks for an easy to follow tutorial!
<p>Very clear instructions! Thank you.</p><p>I am pleased with the two I made. Not sure about the ends, which seem like they will eventually unravel, but as someone commented already, they should hold together for a while. This was a great first project, and increased my confidence to try another.</p>
<p>i make it and like it this is very use full</p>
I did it its awesome
It's a good guide... like it very much. :D
it is very easy thanks
Where would you buy this type of cord from?
a year
it depends how rough you are with them if they come apart remelt them mine lasted aww year
I just finished making this for my work keys. I'm wondering how well the cut off and melted ends hold in place. Any real life experience on how long I can expect them to hold? Thanks for the great instructable!
This is cool
muito bonito forte simples
BTW we're cousins
you also see some more not only from Parabuilder but also me
I agree the written instructions are the best I've ever seen on this site. Using an orange cord rather than two colours is inspired, it's so easy, I'll be making a fortune doing this soon.
Thanks for giving such clear directions.
