How to make a paracord keychain with a hidden compartment:
Supplies you need:
- 3 5ft strands of paracord – (Try it with three different colors!)
- Lighter or matches
Paracord Keychain Instructions:
Step 1: Starting the Paracord Keychain
(The bottom one should be horizontal, the top one vertical
Step 2: Looping the Paracord
Take the ends of the horizontal (P1) cord and cross each strand over the vertical cord (P2) to form an “S” shape.
Step 3: Weaving the Paracord
Now, keeping the P1 as is, weave P2 so the top end comes down, over P1 and down throughout the bottom loop formed by P1. Do the same with the bottom end of P2 but bring it up, over P1 and through the top loop.
Pull to tighten the knot, keeping it loose for the next step.
Step 4: Weaving the third piece of paracord
Now, grab your third piece of paracord (P3). Take one end of P3 and insert it through the side of the knot you just made. Do this by passing it through the loops made by P1 until you’ve reached the mid point of P3.
Pull cords to tighten into your first knot.
Step 5: Crown Knots
Let’s begin to make the crown knots. Start out with all your pieces spread out in each direction.
Step 6: Making the Secret Compartment
Once you have completed 3-4 crown knots, it’s time to grab your pencil!
Step 7: Fill the Secret Compartment
Once you’ve made your fob to the length you want, it’s time to fill your hidden compartment and close it off!
You now have an awesome compartment that can hold some waterproof survival gear, or even some cash for that unexpected rainy day.
Add your keyring to the top part of the fob.
