The financial world we live in is just as wild, if not more, than the mountains and woods we walk through. We are told that the fundamentals of our economy are strong, but we can feel that something is wrong. My unique financial background and survival passion make Financial Survivalist and excellent place to learn and share.

How To Make a Survival Bracelet



Survival bracelets, being an easy way to cary some extra cordage, have been "all the rage" lately. The thing is that they are surprisingly easy to make. I've known this braid since I was 12.

In an effort to save you some money, I tracked down a decent instructable on it.

Step 1: Materials. Actual cordage needed is about 1' for every 1" of bracelet wanted. You'll have to practice to get it right.
 Step 2: Measure Wrist Circumference.
Step 3: Attach to Clip or Create Loop.

Step 4: The Braid
Make sure to alternate the not or the braid will spiral, thought that is a very cool braid as well.
Step 5: Continue Braid
Step 6: End. When it's long enough attach the other clip or knot. If you would like the bracelet thicker, then double back on the braid. I'm not sure how this know was tied, but a little fiddling and I'm sure you can get it. Another option is to use a carabiner or another type of hardware.
The End!

  1. Paracords are the best, inexpensive helper for the outdoors. They are so lightweight yet provides many uses in and out of camp. It's a great thing that there are many DIY paracord projects which can include bracelets, lanyards and even belts! I can't get enough of these paracords and I make sure I have a couple of these inside my bag, my car and even at home. When I make a lot of paracord bracelets, I make sure to give my buddies and family members, as well.
