Go big and bright when you tie the knot with a stack of these bedazzled bracelets. A mix of vibrant paracord offers a bold, statement-sized twist to the traditional friendship bracelet; and the added sparkle of a few colorful gems will make your creation radiate fun all day long!
To create: Cut two 70″ pieces of paracord. Fold the two pieces in half. Fold the left cord over, under and through the right cord. Tighten and slide knot, leaving a loop two-fingers wide. This is a half hitch knot. Repeat in the opposite direction, folding over the right cord, then under and through the left cord. Tighten and slide the knot. Continue making knots working left to right until the bracelet is long enough to wrap around your wrist. Gather both sides of the cord and tie a single regular knot. Snip the ends and burn the tips with a lighter to seal the cord.Always burn at the blue part of the flame for a clean melt and to prevent smoking. Use a dab of glue to adhere your gem embellishments. Let dry for a few minutes before wearing.
