30 Days of Beauty – day 27

My four-year-old got sick last night, just in time for us to move into the holidays, lol. Motherhood is awesome!


Paracord monkey fist

Tons of tutorials for making paracord monkey fists can be found on YouTube.

Monkey fists can be used for self-defense – just hold onto the end and give any attacker a hard whack in the head with the ball. They’re also pretty cute, can be made with multiple colors, and can double as a teething toy for the baby (I recommend using glass marbles for that). Win, win!

I finished mine with a couple of Celtic knots.
