While this isn’t an actual fender, it serves as a great decorative keychain.
Step 1: SUPPLIES
- 3- Strands of paracord that are 40 inches long will create a keychain that is four inches tall (loop included)
- Scissors (any instrument that will cut the cord will work)
- Ruler or Tape Measure (I prefer to use a yardstick)
- Masking Tape (any tape that will stick and hold to the paracord)
Step 2: BEGINNING THE LOOP
Gather the three strands together and then measure from one end down to 17¾ inches.
Hold the three strands at the 17¾ point, and then grab a strip of tape to secure the paracord together (make sure to place the tape edge against the 17¾ point).
Step 3: BRAIDING THE LOOP
Then bring the outermost left-hand strand over the strand to its right.
Continue this process of right-to-left until the braid length is 3½ inches long and then tape the strands together to hold them in place at the point you just measured.
Note: to show the directions clearly, I braided the loop loosely, to make a nice looking loop you will need to braid the strands together much tighter than shown.
Step 4: FINISHING THE LOOP
From the top of the strip of tape (the loop end), measure down 2¼ inches and then secure the strands with tape at that point.
