How to Make a Fishing Lanyard for Sunglasses


Fishing lanyards keep fishing lures were they can easily be found: hanging around your neck. Such lanyards do double duty, providing a way to hang sunglasses around your neck as well. A lanyard makes it easy to find sunglasses whenever you need to suddenly put them on or take them off. Fishing line works well to make a lanyard for sunglasses because it's transparent and easy to tie in knots.

Things You'll Need

  • Fishing line 36 inches long
  • Scissors
  • 2 snap swivels
  • Unroll the fishing line to 36 inches and cut it with scissors.

  • Cut the 36-inch piece of fishing line eight inches from each end, reserving the smaller pieces for the sunglasses. Secure a snap swivel to each end of the remaining fishing line by tying a double knot around the ring. The snap swivels will hold your fishing lures.

  • Secure each of the 8-inch pieces of fishing line to a swivel snap by tying a double knot around a ring. The pieces will hang from the snap swivels.

  • Tie the ends of the 8-inch pieces of fishing line to the narrower edge of the sunglasses earpiece, just in front of the tip, by tying a double knot around the earpiece. Because the tip usually is thicker than the earpiece, the fishing lanyard will not come off.

  • Decorate the lanyard by sliding beads on the fishing line before tying the knots.
