How to Make a Paracord Bracelet

How to make a paracord in a few easy short steps.

Step 1: Materials

For this you will need:

Paracord (1 foot for every inch of the size of your wrist. example: Wrist is 8 inches= 8 feet of paracord)

Bracelet Buckles



Step 2: Cut, Burn, Thread Through

First, you will measure out the amount of paracord you need and burn the ends to keep the paracord ends from fraying.

Then, you will line up the two ends and thread it through one side of the buckle.

Step 3: Secure It

To secure the paracord, take the two ends and start to pull it through and then thread it through the loop and pull tight.

Step 4: Add Other Side of the Buckle

After it is threaded through and pulled tight grab the other side of the buckle thread the two ends through clip it around your wrist, leave a little room and unclip it making sure the buckle does not shift from its spot.

Step 5: Prepare for the Knotting

Once you have the buckle in place, adjust the paracord so the two loose ends are behind the buckle.

Step 6: First Loop

You will take on side of the paracord, fold it over the top of the two lines, then under the two lines through the loop and pull tight.

Step 7: Alternate Sides and Repeat

You will do the same knot on the other side and then you will repeat with alternating both sides.

Step 8: Burn and Done

Once you have reached the end of the buckle, cut off any excess cord and burn the ends. Then you are done!
