Light up Night…

Well here in the town of Pittsburgh it is light up night! I am going to make the kids a few new bracelets so they can also be a part of the huge celebration. I love paracord bracelets and was not sure how I was going to get it to light up, but I have found this awesome video that is easy to follow by The Weavers of Eternity Renaissance.

This super easy bracelet is going to be a fun, and be honest with you, I might just need one myself.

Watch this video to make yours:

Don’t waste- ESTIMATE!

Every wonder how much paracord you might need to make a bracelet? Don’t just guess, why waste! This is a really tough question, there is not a perfect equation to figure it out, but you can safely say 1ft per inch for a tightly knitted bracelet. If you are just a beginner, give your some slack! Use 1 1/2 feet for inch. When tying a King cobra allow double!

Bang Bang…..

Do you own a rifle…? Do you have an ultimate rifle sling.

Watch the video below to demonstrate how to make a wide cobra weave paracord sling for your shotgun or rifle with 550 cord using a double cobra weave. Using this guide the sling takes 2 or 3 hours to make but the end product looks good. To make this sling you need the two sling mounts and about 90 feet of paracord consisting of one strand of your inside color at 30 feet and two strands of the outside color at 30 feet each. Not only is this make a great shotgun/ rifle sling but it’s also a great way to carry 90 feet of paracord with you. This sling ended up being 43″ long when I was all done

What To Do With Your Paracord Scraps

We all have paracord scraps laying around. I used to tie up little paracord men with these until I filled a drawer with them. Scraps can be useful for trim on a bracelet or for a whole new bracelet/lanyard. This video has a great project to use them up for a multi-colored bracelet. With all the colors you can get into one of these, I may try this for an autism awareness bracelet.
