    How to Make an Infantry Cord Bracelet

  1. 1

    Cut three strands of braiding cord, one of each colour, about one foot long.

  2. 2

    Even up the ends of the strand and tie them all together in a knot at one end, leaving about 1/2 inch for tying on the bracelet.

  3. 3

    Pin each cord to the craft board directly below the tied knot using the push pins.

  4. 4

    Begin braiding the three strands together. Cross the left strand over the centre strand, and then cross the right strand over those two strands. Repeat this process to continue braiding the cords.

  5. 5

    Remove the braided cord from the craft board when it is about 5 inches long. Wrap it around your wrist to see if it is long enough yet. If it is not, continue braiding. If it is too long, simply undo the braided cord a bit.

  6. 6

    Tie a knot in the three strands of cord when you have braided it to the desired length. Trim off the excess cord with scissors, leaving about 1/2 inch to tie the bracelet with, and you have created an infantry cord bracelet ready to be tied to your wrist.

Tips and warnings

  • Place beads or charms onto your bracelet as you braid the cords to add decoration.
  • Keep the cords flat lying side by side as you braid to keep the cords from bunching.
