chain mail armor made from weed wacker string. Its cheap, cool looking, and easy to make. (this will not stop a sword!!) cool for costumes if you can find black or silver. or just spray paint when done.
Step 1: Step One
stuff you will need:
1. a roll of weed wacker string
2. a cutting instrument (i used a gerber)
3. time and patience!
cut strings into about 1 foot sections as many as you will need to make a full top. also cut about 6 inch sections for the connecters.
Step 2: Twister
weave the long pieces into circles into about 1 inch diameters.
Step 3: Connecting
use the small pieces to weave the larger circles together....you will make circles about 1/2 inch in diameter. continue until you have the size and shape you want, and enjoy!!
