Paracord Ninja

These are the little ninja paracord men I just made from mostly scraps of paracords I have had from other projects.

You can create different themes and accessories not just ninja you could make army men, zombies Robin Hood with a bow and arrows it's upto your imagination.

Perfect as a gift or to put in kids party bags.

Step 1: Gather the Materials

A few lengths of paracord

Step 2:

Make a monkeys fist knot in the middle of the long length and finish off with a snake knot to create the neck.

Step 3:

To make the body take another length of paracord and make 5 cobra stitch knots along the 2 trailing cords back up towards the head and the leftover strands will be for the arms and legs.

Step 4:

To make the arms and legs it's pretty much the same as the body but this time use gutted paracord and start close to the body working away. Push all the cord tight in then cut off the trailing cord end and seal with the lighter.

    If you do I changed how I did the neck area I tucked the cords back through the bottom of the monkeys fist rather than adding in the extra knot this made them look a little neater.
    I have the measurements of the cord I cut if you want them
    when I make these I cut multiple sets too.
    Also I just tuck in the headband and belt then drop a spot of super glue on the knot to keep these on.

    I think I may be making a few of these soon. I have a major aikido event in a couple of months and i think they may sell quite well there

    These are nothing like yours my love, these are completely different and look better.
    The reason I made them into a ninja is because my 5 year old son wants to be one not to try and copy your instructable.
