Cigarette lanyard

Picture of cigarette lanyard
A long time pack and a half a day smoker I recently started using an ecigarette and am down to 2-3 regular cigarettes a day !
There are some differences to an old school cigarette that take some getting used to, it's difficult to hold it in your mouth when not actively smoking and if you put it in a pocket it can be difficult to locate quickly so I thought why not hang it around my neck?

  If your wondering about the skull...... its almost Halloween and Ive been working on several projects so it was handy when I need a way to display this creation

Step 1: Getting started

Picture of getting started

You'll need an ecigarette and its flavor cartridges
 each cartridge comes with 2 protective silicone boots
a necklace or ribbon

Step 2: Cut

I used a small razor knife to cut off the end of the protective boot leaving me a band that fits snugly around the ecigarette

Step 3: The knot

I didn't have a thin chain but I had some ladder ribbon I use to make necklaces, I did a very basic crochet/macrame chain stitch where you make a loop in the string, pass the string back through the loop to form another loop and pull the 1st loop snug and repeat as needed. I left some of the ribbon unknotted and tied the 2 ends together.

Step 4: Hang it

I slipped the knotted end of the necklace / lanyard through the silicone band and slipped it over the ecigarette , put the lanyard over my head and adjusted the ecig to hang comfortably.
