This was another idea I had playing off the leather wrapped flask I did. This is a smaller flask and I wrapped it with paracord. I followed the same general pattern with a few modifications to accommodate the smooth texture of the paracord.

The texture of the flask and cord are all factors to take into account but this one turned out pretty well.

I started in the same way securing the end at the top and wrapping horizontally with moderate tension. The vertical strands are dealt with the same way as those on the leather wrap, the only difference is that when weaving you have to consider the weave pattern you desire and how well it sits on the top shoulders and under the bottom.

As with all paracord, you must heat the ends to avoid them from fraying and when ending the wrap make certain that they are secured and hidden under the horizontal wraps.

I have added a link to the flask I used for the leather wrapped…
