Supplies you need:

- Side release buckle

Supplies you need when you make an oat spike paracord bracelet
Step 1: Get Started
In order to get started, make sure the ends of your paracord are trimmed and singed.
Then, fold each piece in half to find the center points.
Fold both piece of paracord in half to find the centers.
Step 2: Put on the first buckle
Starting with the grey paracord, slide on the first buckle:
Take the grey piece and thread the two ends up the first slot of the male end of the buckle and back down through the second slot.
Now bring them back down through the second slot.
Pull the ends through the loop to fasten the buckle onto the paracord.
Pull to tighten.
Step 3: Start weaving
Lay your blue paracord behind the grey to start:
Lay your paracord so the center of the blue piece is behind the grey piece.
Cross the blue strands around in front of the grey.
Starting with the right strand, pull the grey strands up and under the blue loop.
Do the same thing with the left side.
Pull to tighten.
Step 4: Continue on down the bracelet
Now that you have your first knot, pull the grey strands back over the blue and repeat step 3:
Bring the grey strand back down and over the blue.
Repeat the last step.
Pull to tighten.
Step 4: Add the other end of the buckle
Once you’ve made your bracelet the correct length for your wrist, let’s add the other end of the buckle:
Once you have made your bracelet the length you want, cross the blue strands around the grey one more time.
This time, before you loop your grey strands through the blue, pull them up through the other end of the buckle.
Then loop them through the blue, just like before and pull to tighten.
Step 5: Finishing Up
In order to ensure that your bracelet won’t unravel until you need it, one at a time, take the ends of each strand and weave it back into the bracelet.
In order to ensure that your bracelet won’t unravel, take each end one at a time and weave it back into the bracelet just once.
Pull the ends through to tighten.
Step 6: Cut and singe the ends to seal! Enjoy!
