Introduction: How to Make a Survival Paracord Belt Using Only Two Cords!

I saw at an online army store a really awesome paracord belt.  It packed in 125-200 feet of paracord.  Well mine doesn't pack as much paracord, but it looks almost the same!

This version is a very smooth one.  It goes through the belt loops very easly if you tighten the paracord a lot.  This belt unravels to about 50 feet of paracord.  You could easily weave this into a hammock if you wanted too.

There is not many steps because I crammed all of the braiding instructions on one step.

Step 1:

All you need is:
-(two) 50 feet of paracord (two different colors)
-(two) D-rings
-Webbing (Check the picture notes)

Step 2: Starting Up

This part is easy.
All you have to do is roll the paracord on a paper towel tube or a wood stick.  This helps the project a lot easier.  You will see why later.
You also need to get the webing and wrap it around your waist.  Find the folding point where it has two strips of webing but were the shorter end stops the longer end is a foot long.  Then put the D-rings through that fold.  Sorry I couldn't have a picture for that part.

Step 3: Begining the Braid

The instructions are on the image notes. (Sorry, I didn't want to type it all over again)
It is just the simple paracord braiding technique.  For those who don't know how to do this, here are the instructions.  (I am a visual learner so I like to do the instructions by pictures.)

Step 4: Finishing Up

Here are some pictures of the ends being melted off.  This part is simple.
When you are in the wild, and you don't have a tent or flat surface to sleep on, you can weave this belt into a hammock!
