    Hello guys.I have About 1 million extra strands of para cord each one no longer than 5 to 20 inches long,I was wondering does anyone have any ideas on what to do with them.I have already made a ton of key chains.

    Ha ha! I am really interested in seeing ideas here too. I have thrown away COUNTLESS amounts of small strands. I would like to see what uses people have found for this as well.

    Great post!

    You know what would be cool? Rings. Like, a cool wrap around with some neat knot at the top. I am going to try this.

    Zipper pulls for bug out bags, backpacks, jackets, or whatever has a zipper! Diamond knot at the end, or a small cobra end. The extra pieces are great for this.

    I will gut the cord and slide some thick aluminum wire in. Use wire thick enough so that it will hold a shape. Seal the ends (melt together). Super cheap gear ties. Nice and flexible, yet holds. I use the short ones for phone cords/headphones etc. The longer 6"+ I'll use for Paracord hanks or temporary hooks.

    You can always do a fishtail multicolored bracelet, they're pretty easy.

    I like to loop them around keyring and make little dream catchers or loop it only half way and make a necklace out of it! For example this is one I made yesterday! The ladies really like them as well! ImageUploadedByParacord Forum1423935475.050602.jpg
