I have made a 50 inch paracord rifle strap, using 3 different colors. The person I made this for is bigger and her rifle is black/pink cammo. Hence why I chose the colors I did and the length.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
For this we will be using 100' black, 18' of light pink and 16' of hot pink paracord.
2 universal rifle clips
2 lacing needles
knife and lighter
Step 2: Tie Center Strands
Cut 10" off of the 18' light pink cord. Then loop it through both through both rifle loops. If you want to hide the seam pull the cord so the end will be covered by the lacing as shown.
Step 3: Begin Tying Main Color
Cut two sections of your main color as per the formula of 4' ties down to 5"
So for this 50'' strap, You'l need two 40' sections.
Start tying the main color cord down one set of center cords as shown.
Step 4: Continue Down
Here you can see it beginning to take shape. A cobra knot is what is used all the way down. Dont worry about pulling it too tight. The lacing later will take care of that.
Step 5: Keep Tying Down
Continue down to the end of the one side. Cut and melt your ends and begin on the other set of center cords.
Step 6: Tie Second Set
After a few hours of tying cord, your hands should be sore. Your almost there.
Make sure both sections are the same length before you cut and melt the ends on the second set.
Step 7: Begin Lacing
Take the 16' color of choice and twist the lacing needles on both ends. Push the needle through the loop right at the top between the two cobra tied sections.
Step 8: Lace Together
Keep picking the loops on the inside of the separation and use a zig zag pattern. Working with both ends at the same time makes it go quicker and less chance of an error.
Step 9: Continue Down
Keep lacing and pulling tight as you go.
Step 10: Finish It Up
Lace down the full length. Make sure all loops are even and tight before you melt the ends.
Step 11: Admire and Use
Role up and give as a gift or attach to rifle and enjoy.
