1. Fishtail Paracord Survival Bracelet

This simple bracelet is fairly easy to make and can be a good training ground for beginners. It deploys quickly and is lightweight as well. It is also named as it is because it looks like the tail of the fish once done.

2. Law Enforcement Style Paracord Survival Bracelet

The law enforcement style bracelet is made for optimum utility and ruggedness. It’s called that because this style is usually used by law enforcement officers with two blue stripes and one center stripe in black. This is one of the basic styles that is great for beginners to start with.

Supplies:

  • 13 ft of 550 paracord (makes 8.5″ bracelet)
  • 1/2 in side release buckle scissors
  • Lighter or matches
Instructions:
Step 1: To get started, attach your paracord to one side of your buckle. Fold your piece in half and thread it through the buckle. Then pull the ends through the loop you made and pull tight.

Step 2: Attach the other buckle and size it to your wrist by threading the loose ends through the second buckle piece. Next, pull the buckle up along the cord until you are at your desired bracelet length. Then loop the ends back up towards the first buckle.

Step 3: Start weaving your bracelet. Hold the ends so the left free strand is on the left side of the buckle and the right strand is on the right side. Then take the left strand around the front and loop it around all the pieces of paracord. You can then pull it back to the left side.

Step 4: Starting with the left piece, thread it over the left core section. Take it under the right core section, then over the right free strand. Now, take the right free strand. Keeping it under the left free strand – pull it over the right core section. Underneath the left core section and up through the loop created by your left strand.  Pull to tighten.

Step 5: Now, start the second section with the free strand on the right. For the rest of the instructions from DIY Projects on how to make a paracord bracelet, click here!

  • 10 feet of paracord
  • Side release buckle
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors

Instructions:

Step 1: Once you cut your paracord to the desired length (about 10 feet), seal the end using your lighter. You don’t want to be working with a frayed end.

Now, measure your wrist size by taking one end of the paracord and wrap it around your wrist. Lay that section next to your measuring tape to see how many inches long your bracelet will be.

Supplies:

  • Two 9ft pieces of paracord
  • Side release buckle
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors

Instructions:

Step 1: For this tutorial, we are going to start with the green paracord. First, fold the green paracord in half to find the center. Take that loop and feed it through the slot on the female side of the buckle.

Pull the ends through and firmly tighten around the buckle. Fold the green paracord in half and pull the loop through the buckle. Pull the ends all the way through the loop and tighten. Pull until the paracord is snug around the buckle.

Step 2: Let’s go ahead and do the same thing with the black paracord to attach it to the male side of the buckle. Take the black strand of paracord and attach it the same way to the other end of the buckle. Pull it snug around the buckle.

Step 3: Now let’s prep our black paracord to attach it to the green paracord by making some bunny ear loops.

  • First, you’ll want to measure the length of your bracelet using your measuring tape. Keep in mind that you want to include half of the buckle in this measurement. For this tutorial, we are making a 7-inch bracelet.
  • Using your finger to keep the length of the bracelet intact, fold the two ends down to create two loops.
  • Then take the right strand and pull it over the center and under the left strand.
  • To finish it off, take the left strand under the center and up through the right loop.
Measure the paracord to the length you want your bracelet. Take your green paracord and fold the ends down to make two loops at the length you measured for your bracelet. Then, pull the right strand over the center pieces and under the left strand.
