DIY Paracord Dog Leash: Easy Steps to Make One

 

What You’ll Need:

  • 10 feet of paracord
  • Keychain hook
  • Paracord Jig
  • Scissors

DIY Paracord Dog Leash Instructions:

This paracord dog leash is a great way to put your paracord-weaving skills to use. In the tutorial below, I’ll show you how to make a round paracord dog leash in wall knots that is strong and secure.

As a proud survivalist, I’m a huge fan of making my own gifts, and paracord is a great material to work with. This dog leash beats anything you’ll find in the store, and it’s much more affordable. Check out the steps below to see how it’s done:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Gather Your Materials | DIY Holiday Gift: How To Make A Paracord Dog Leash | paracord dog leash round braid

To start making your own DIY paracord dog leash, you have to mount your keychain hook and grab a decent amount of paracord. We recommend using at least 10 feet to make sure you have the length you need. The last thing you’d want is to run back to the store and buy paracord again, just when you’re in a DIY mood!

Step 2: Loop Your Paracord Through the Hook

Fold your cord in half, then make a loop with the right strand. Insert the loop into the keychain hook, then pull the cord strings through. This loop should be sturdy enough to attach the paracord to the keychain.

Step 3: Begin Tying Double Wall Knots

Pass the left cord over the right cord, then behind the top loop and through the left loop. Pull tight. Basically, a double wall knot is like a single crown knot but instead of tucking or cutting off the ends, they are carried around following the direction of the first.

Step 4: Repeat the Sequence

Simply continue the sequences in the previous steps until you reach the end. Your leash can be anywhere from 3 feet to 6 feet – just make sure you leave enough to make the handle. Don’t rush the knotting; make sure all knots are tight and tucked.

Step 5: Make the Paracord Dog Leash Handle

Wrap the leash into a loop. Wind the excess paracord tightly around the leash until it’s secure. It will resemble a strider knot. Strider is typically used to wrap knife handles.

    Actually, After already leaving comments just a bit ago on a previous topic, I wasn’t intending to leave any others tonight but, I have to leave one here because I am not only disappointed but a bit ticked off as well! I was intending to make one of these dog leash’s for a gift but when I tried to watch the first gif, it goes so quickly it’s impossible to see for sure how even the first knot is made because it goes much to quickly and can’t be paused to try and get the way it is done. Another point is, you say that to take a 10 foot piece of paracord, 10 feet?? With only that much, by the time you gT those knots made you’d be lucky if you had a 2 foot leash!! I don’t know many people interested in one of that length; I wouldn’t be….

    Thsre are many difterent wine gift baskets to pick from, that
    I am sure you will find the one that meets their liking. If you want, you can also use see-through cellophane to wrap
    thee basket to have an enhanced look. Baby rattles
    as wwll as other colorful lightweight toys arre invariably a huge hit with little babies
    and discover a place in baby gift baskets.
