How to Make a Spiral Lanyard

by Tiffany Dahl

This guide will show you how to make the next lanyard in my series.... The spiral lanyard. I hope you enjoy 😃


  • Craft Lace, plastic string
  • Scissors
  • Key hook or ring
  • Crazy Glue
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Get two colors of Craft Lace or plastic string

    Step 2

    Fold them in half

    Step 3

    Take the green lace on the bottom and make two loops over the blue lace.

    Step 4

    Take one end of the blue lace and put it over the first green loop and under the second.

    Step 5

    Grab the other end of the blue string and do the same thing. Over the first green loop and under the second one.

    Step 6

    Pull all of the ends of your lace tight.

    Step 7

    Instead of going straight across like the square lanyard we are going to make our loops to the sides. This step is what is going to give us the spiral look.

    Step 8

    Take your green lace and go over and under both the blue loops. You are going to go to the sides again and not straight across.

    Step 9

    Pull the ends of the lace tight.

    Step 10

    Repeat steps 7 to 9

    Step 11

    After 10 to 13 rows you will see how the spiral looks. It looks funner that the plain box. Let's keep going and make your lanyard to your desired length.

    Step 12

    20 more rows done :)

    Step 13

    Now I am almost at the end of my lace, let's finish this off

    Step 14

    Add a little bit of Crazy Glue and trim the ends.

    Step 15

    And here is our spiral lanyard next to the square/box lanyard.

    Step 16

    I hope you all enjoyed this guide as much as I did making it. Keep your eyes peeled for more lanyard guides!!!!
