Clever Paracord Flower Macrame Bracelet Tutorial

This clever paracord macrame tutorial is by Bettina Schlezak.  A feminine design rather than the usual masculine or unisex look. The knotting part is easy and fast because the paracord is so thick.  The two base cords remain the same but the cord color of each flower are changed.


If you scroll right down to towards the end, you can see how the ends of the colored cords are tucked in, bound up in pairs before being cut. You could seal the ends with some glue so they do not fray.

The metal flower centers intrigued me. They are not beads but had some kind of brooch attachment at the end.  Has anyone come across findings like this? 

I suggest using shank buttons and some wiring to secure to the base wires.

Don't like the thick paracord?  By all means experiment with finer cords like rat tail.

  1. It looks like the flower "beads" are slider beads to make leather brackets. There's a lot to choose from on various sites.

  2. This is so cute. Paracord is something I have never played with but with the detailed pictures I think I could handle making these for my fur babies. However...I started looking at paracord online and realized the huge variety of paracord available. Could you by any chance give me an idea of where to start, like thickness that would work, (and anything else that I'm not aware of that I need to know lol) thanks so much for continuing to feed my need to craft.

  3. The flower findings are the sliders you can buy to use on flat leather. This link will show both front and back: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Antique-Silver-Flower-Slider-Spacer-Beads-For-Up-To-5mm-10mm-Flat-Leather-Cord-/253397000810
