Do you have to remove your glasses often, and are afraid of losing them when you aren't wearing them? Why not keep them around your neck? Paracord is a cheap, extremely durable, multi-use, and stylish material for building and crafting. Which makes it perfect for this project! Keep your sharp shades quick at hand with the Paracord Glasses Lanyard!

Step 1: What You Need

• Two 3 foot strands of your favorite color (or 2 colors) paracord.

• Glasses/Sunglasses

• Scissors

• A Lighter

• Hands (If telekinetic, hands not required)

Total average crafting time: about 30 minutes
<p>Thanks... this is very helpful. In my case I used a shoelace for a pair of heavy hiking boots. Very similar to paracord, except it does not require burning the ends. </p><p>Thanks again,</p>
<p>Thanks for this! After making one exactly as shown here, I decided to make a couple of modifications. The first thing I found was that standard paracord was rather heavy for my light framed prescription glasses. So I decided to gut the inner fibers of both paracord pieces. I used a piece only 9 inches long for the cinch, to further cut down on the weight. <br>The end result is terrific, and I now have all 4 pairs of various glasses fitted with this Instructable. I plan to make a bunch more for friends and family. And no more watching in horror as my expensive prescription glasses twirl while making its way down to bottom of the lake while fishing. lol<br><br>Thanks again.<br>Cheers!<br>Andre </p><p>Ontario, Canada</p>
