Paracord Survival Bracelet

Paracord Survival Bracelet

After the positive response we had with The Magic Braid, we decided it would be fun to combine my pictures into a “mini tutorial”. For this project I will be using about 7ft of paracord to make survival bracelets for the kids interested in surviving the great outdoors! These bracelets are easy to make and a fun project for hikers and campers of all ages. Typical uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, as strapping to avoid losing small or important items, tying items to vehicle racks, securing tents and tarps, tourniquets, etc.

Use a flame to melt the ends of the paracord to keep your bracelet from fraying. :-)

  1. This post Paracord Survival Bracelet was a good read so I Tweeted it to hopefully give you more readers.

  2. How do you end the paracord? It doesn’t show what to do with the ends when you are through with them.

  3. Hi Nikki,
    I always use a lighter to melt the ends just a little bit and stick them together.

  4. Ok, you melt the ends but then you stick them together and do what with them? Are then included in the knot. I’m not following where they are once they are melted together.

  5. You could melt the loose ends together, but I just cut the ends really short and melt them to the bracelet itself.

  6. Very nice article, exactly what I was looking for.

  7. How much para cord used for each person? What’s the 7 ft for, to wrap
    Or not around the one to fit around wrist? I was thinking of doing this for a large church camp group.

  8. Yes, the “7ft piece” of cord wraps around the smaller “wrist piece”. Find the center of the 7ft piece to start your first knot.

  9. What was the width of the paracord you used?

  10. I think its just the standard paracord about 3/16′s
