    Paracord voodoo dolls are not a new thing but I couldn't find a model that I really liked so I made my own! :D They are really easy to make and look great with all kinds of helmet and skull beads.

    This is a small step-by-step tutorial. You start making a few snake knots (stellaceleste.com/htm/knots/snakeknot.htm), 3-5 depending on the size you like. Then you loosen the first knot a bit and put a second piece of paracord through it for the arms. You can make a simple knot between the "shoulders" to keep the arms in place but it is not really necessary. Simple knots can also be used as hands and feet.

    The voodoo doll with the gas mask is using two Matthew Walker knots (atwoodknives.com/home/16390018.php) which makes the doll look more like a skeleton.

    Thanks for showing these. My younger grandson just looked them over and is interested in "building" one so we'll give it a try. Again, thanks!

    I believe the Spartan is from Spartan Blades and also a few eBay sellers.

    The spartan bead is from a Russian guy. He is sometimes selling them on ebay but its worth contacting him directly for a discount! Spartan blades makes similar beads, a bit smaller and made from pewter but also much cheaper. The other beads are from Skelton Knives!

    Very nice!! Is that a spartan bead from Spartan Blades? I was already wondering how these would fit! And the skull is from Schuckatelli?

    Thank you :D
    The Spartan is from a friend of mine, think he made it himself ?????? (sorry don't know how).
    And the skull is from a "special run" from tacticalforum.de a few years ago.

    OK, my grandson and I have finished our master work:

    The head is from Spartan Blades and I can see what Thefrank means about the ones he has being larger. Still, my grandson is happy ... what else matters? Thanks again, Thefrank!

    Looks great to me! I think the Spartan Blade beads are a bit more to scale anyway. I had to add an extra knot to my voodoo doll to stabilize the bigger spartan helmet.

    Thanks, Thefrank ... I'm sure I'll have a 'cottage industry' going until I make one for each grandson. Seriously, though, thank you again!
