How to make Paracord Bracelets is a fun craft, and a great boredom buster! We recently made paracord survival bracelets at a family reunion WHILE camping, and they were a HUGE hit. Youngish kids (my 7 year old weaved his own) can learn how to weave the bracelets and they can be done quickly during down time. This is a super fun craft for all ages because it’s useful, it’s great for both boys and girls, young and old, and there is quite a bit of versatility with color combinations.
Uses for PARACORD BRACELETS:
The great thing about these bracelets is that they are meant to be useful and can help one survive! They can be unraveled when one needs rope for a variety of purposes like securing things, flossing one’s teeth (ha), lashing together poles, fixing broken things like straps or belts, assisting with rescues, or even used for first aid as a tourniquet.
Supplies Needed for Making PARACORD BRACELETS:
- Paracord. We used 550 Reflective Paracord Parachute Cord. (purchased on ebay)
- 3/8″ Bracelet buckles for paracord bracelets. (purchased on ebay)
- Measuring Tape
- Lighter (to burn the ends of the cord so they don’t fray)
