The paracord is easily a default item in every prepper’s survival kit or bug out bag. People have come up with so many ideas for it that it has become the new standard multi-purpose cordage. You don’t have to carry a heavy rope for your survival needs. Paracord is very light yet so very strong, and it doesn’t take much space either; they can be worn as bracelets. Check these instructions on how to make a paracord survival bracelet.

How to Make a Simple Paracord Bracelet

One of the most popular products for paracord is the bracelet. It will seem like kid stuff, but there are good reasons why the paracord bracelet is a good project. For one, you have an extremely tough, convenient, and useful place for it. Some people will not be able to grasp the fact you have more than 10 feet of cordage placed fashionably around your wrist.

While there are many paracord patterns, this design is much easier to untangle when you need it for emergency situations. Continue reading to know how to make the millipede paracord bracelet.

Supplies needed to make a millipede survival paracord bracelet:

  • 2 paracords (same or different colors)
  • A lighter or something to melt the ends
  • A cutter or something to cut the paracord with

Step 1: Make a Knot on Each Paracord

You can use the same color or two different colors to make this paracord bracelet. Start off by creating a big slipknot on each paracord. To make the knot, create a loop in the middle of the paracord, then push the shorter end through the loop. Tighten the knot and adjust it according to the length you want your bracelet to be.

Step 2: Braid the Paracord Bracelet

Put the two paracords side-by-side with the two slipknots touching each other. To start the weaving, put one cord over both big loops. Then go under and push it through the loop that you just made. Do the same with the other cord on the other side. You just have to go the opposite way. Tighten up the cords by pulling them away from the base loops. Make sure the base loops are still of the same lengths and that nothing is too loose.

Step 3: Cut Off Excess Paracord

After weaving through to the end of the base loop, cut off the excess cord. Melt the loose ends with a lighter to lock it in place.

Step 4: Lock It Up with a Diamond Hook

To lock the paracord bracelet when you wear it, create the diamond hook on the opposite side of the open loops. To do this, make a loop with one cord. Take the other cord and weave it over, then under and through the loop you just made with the other cord. It should then go under its own cord, then over the other cord. Pull the ends together to tighten until you have a knot resembling a diamond.
