How To Make Wristbands

One of my best and most fun tutorials was how to make wristbands with satin rattail cords, which are also known as paracords. You can easily get the cords from any stationery shop. DIY paracord wristbands are super easy to make and stylish to wear. You can make one in 5-10 minutes once you mastered the technique. What more could you ask for in less than 10 minutes? You can make wristbands in any colors you like and there are quite some different braids you can try, such as Dutch style braid and cross braids.Without further ado, let’s look at how to make wristbands.
