Paracord Desert Flower Medallion

Picture of Paracord Desert Flower Medallion
All creative souls,

I never thought working with paracord would be so much fun until today. It is proved over & over again and today that there is no creative inspiration source better than instructables, I love you .

Paracord projects always amazed me and I thought they are too difficult to work with but having seen here so many of them, few days back I finally decided to get my hands dirty and I am so glad that I did.

This project is a decorative flower, known as Desert Flower created to look like a medallion or pendant. It can be a lovely gift and can also be wore as a neck piece. Very unique.

Please don't get overwhelmed by so many number of steps, you will find them very easy to work with, step-by-step.

I tired to incorporate all my learnings into this instructable, some of them are very basic and I hope it will help beginners like me.

This is my first ever paracord project and I worked really hard to put this up as an instructable. I hope you will like it and vote for it.

Lets begin.

  2. 1 paracord off 6 ft length of color of your choice (red in this ible)
  3. A sharp scissor.

You can increase the length of the cords to make a bigger medallion.

This is my version - designed to hang from rear view mirror or hook on to anything you want. Not quite the same as yours but yours was my inspiration!!

That is lovely! I still haven't figured out what paracord is called here...must try once i do find it!. Paracoard stretchy? or doesn't it flex? Thanks!

Tarun Upadhyaya (author)  shazni2 months ago

Thank you so much Shazni :). I had the same problem finding it. Paracords have very little elasticity. Try finding it with name parachute cords at shops those sell macrame strings or similar stuff.
