Bullet Lanyard

A couple weeks ago my uncle and I went to the shooting range.Since I have always been taught to pick up after my self I picked up ALL of the spent casings on the ground.I was either going to sell the brass or make something out of them, so I tried to get some ideas on projects to make and I remembered my awesome camo lanyard broke and I was in need of a new one for school(they probably won't like my idea) so I made this.

materials list:
•paracord(I used the cheap $2.00 stuff from Walmart
•lobster clip(any clip to attach my ID to)
•Spent casing (I used a 6mm rifle cartridge)
•Drill press
*WARNING* please make sure the shell you use is already shot off. I will not be responsible if and when you get hurt when it explodes

Find a Shell

Find a shell you want on your lanyard I used a 6mm rifle cartridge.

Polish Shell *optional

I didn't polish mine but you can if you want

Drill Hole

Use a drill press to drill out the primer *WARNING* only use shot of shells I'm not responsible if you get hurt when it explodes under the drill press

Put Cord Through the Shell

Attach the paracord to the lobster clip and put the shell over the cord

Tie the Knots

I used a plain old Solomon knot but you could probably use nicer knots

End Knots

Once you get as far as you want you could double back over and do the same Solomon knot(like I did) or you could just stop here and cut the excess paracord and melt the ends.
