Parachute cord has been popping up all over Pinterest. Bracelets seem to be a popular accessory to make out of this trendy cord. I love the way the bracelets look, but I decided to go a different route.
I figured I would attempt a simple tribal inspired necklace using the parachute cord. This was pretty easy. Just a little cutting and gluing and you are finished!

What do you think of our tribal inspired necklace?
Here's what you'll need:
- Pepperell Parachute Cord
- Gold Plastic Trim
- Necklace End Caps
- Super Glue
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Let's get crafty!
Step 1: Decide on the length of your necklace. Once you have decided, hold one end of your cord and go back and forth until all of your cords are even.
Step 2: Cut the loops at the ends of your necklace.
Step 3: Wrap tape around the ends of your cord. You will want to trim down your cord afterwards so you won't see the tape sticking out of your end cap.
Step 5: Place your cords inside of your end cap. The number of cords you use will be determined by the size of your end cap opening.
Step 6: Straighten out your cords. Wrap your remaining cord ends with tape and trim them down so the tape will not show once inside of your end cap. Glue your cords inside of your end cap.
Step 7: Cut your gold trim in half.
Step 8: Cut your gold trim long enough so it will fit around your cords. Place hot glue on one side of your trim then wrap it around your cords. Repeat this step until you have added your desired number of gold trim to your necklace. You are finished!
