Here is a pic of a couple of dreamcather key fobs I made for my wife and a friend. I used 450 paracord that I ordered from I picked up the big key rings from a local locksmith. This was my second attempt at this.
A friend of mine asked me to make a necklace for him. I did the diamond back braid and attached it to a 1/2 in. side release buckle. Turned out good and seems to be popular.
The steering wheel cover just stretches around and does not fit tight. I was asked to wrap it if I could. I made it just like a dreamcatcher but only made 2 passes inside.
This a pic of a neck knife I made for my wife. I also wrapped the handle.

Here is a pic of some knife lanyards and a couple of bracelets that match 2 of them. These were all requested items. All the knives I used are Columbia River Knife And Tool products. Several vendors offer these knives. I search the web for the best prices.

Lanyard For A Neck Knife

This is a pic of a neck lanyard I made for a knife I ordered from . It's a simple square knot braid with a 3/8" side release buckle. It looks good and is very easy to get to when needed.

Snake Knot Key Fob

Find the center of your cords and place on a ring. I started out with a lanyard knot. Take the 2 back strands and pull them out to the side as shown in the pic.
Take the strand to the left across the front and around all three of the other strands..

Take the strand to the right and go behind the other cords as shown and through the loop on the right side.

Pull it tight and it should look like this.

Repeat steps 2,3 and 4 until you reach desired length. I like to use the lanyard knot to finish for looks. I hope this helps anyone having trouble.
