The original poseable paracord army men!
I grew up playing with little plastic green army men. They were okay, but they couldn't really do much. They were either shooting guns, throwing grenades, or using binoculars. That was about it.
So I made some poseable paracord army men, and these guys can do all sorts of cool stuff. They're not just limited to war-type activities anymore; they can dance, scrapbook, chase butterflies... anything is possible.
If you make one of these, post a photo of it in the comments and I'll give you a code for a free pro membership to the site. I've got a bunch . . . but when they're gone, they're gone!
Step 1: Get started
You will need some paracord and some thin wire. I used "bell wire" which I believe was 22 or 24 gauge.
Cut two strands of paracord, one about 44" and the other about 20". Remove the inner paracord strands. Cut two matching lengths of wire and insert them into the hollow pieces of paracord.
To keep the paracord from fraying, you can fuse the ends with a lighter as shown in the third photo.
