Paracord donut

This delicious paracord creation is made to store paracord.

In this article I will show you how to make a paracord donut. The donut itself is very compact and provides quite a few benefits:

  • easy to make
  • stores an ample supply of paracord
  • looks beautiful and unique
  • takes up little space
  • prevents your cord from getting tangled- a big time saver
  • quick deploy ready. Can be used with no effort, you can unwrap how much you need.
  • free to make

The donut is great for travelling and survival purposes.  The benefits listed make it a very useful item to make in my opinion. I would not be fair if I did not list a few disadvantages as well:

  • takes a bit of time to make (this time is greatly reduced when you get used to it)
  • not appropriate for larger lengths of paracord (100 feet can be done, but 300 or even 1000 feet is too much)

As such, all there is is for me to tell you how to make the paracord donut.

As far as supplies go, all you will need is some paracord.

How to make a paracord donut

We will use a similar method to the one used in quick deploy bracelets. The technique, described roughly is to make a few wraps around your hand . The amount of wraps do not matter, but the central hole diameter does, The wider the core, the more you can wrap onto it. Past that, I think that my image tutorial below serves better use than writing instructions down.
