DIY Jeweled Paracord Friendship Bracelet

SAMSUNG

The warmer temps are right around the corner and I’m getting started on the new additions to my arm party.  This neon jeweled number is my latest creation and currently available as a DIY Kit on Lower East Dry Goods.

A hoarder of crafting supplies?  Then check your goody closet for the following DIY paraphernalia and continue on with the following steps.

GATHER:

  • 8-10 ft paracord rope
  • 1 jeweled/statement bead
  • needle
  • thread
  • E6000
  • scissors
  • lighter

Cut about 16-20 inches of paracord. Fold the strand in half, wrap around your wrist making note of where the loop end meets the loose ends and tie off at the that point.  This is the base for your bracelet

Now take the rest of the paracord, center it and place behind the bracelet base.

Fold the right cord over the middle strands and under the left cord

Fold the left cord under the middle and through the loop on the right side

Tighten and slide the knot up the base only keeping a loop wide enough to fit over the end knot

Now fold the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord

Fold the right cord under the middle and through the loop on the left

Tighten and repeat 3-4 and 6-7 until you’ve knotted all the way to the end

Once you make it there, double check to make sure it fits comfortable. Too small? Undo the end and continue knotting.  Too big? Take out a few knots.

Got a good fit? Awesome lets add the bling.

Now I decided to sew it on but a faster method would be to use E6000 and just glue it on.  The choice is yours.

Once the bead is on, trim off the excess paracord and burn the edges to seal in the knot.

And now you have a great addition to your arm party arsenal.
