Step by step instructions showing you how to make your very own handmade Parachute, presented by Crafty Corner

For any questions contact us via email


What you need to make a Parachute:

  • Thick thread or wool
  • Paper napkin or felt cloth
  • Small piece of drift wood or bobbin
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Scissors

Step 1

Cut 4 x 45cm pieces of thread and 1 x 15cm piece of thread. Use your measuring tape or ruler to make sure you have cut your thread the right length.


Step 2

Tie one end of each thread to a corner of your napkin or felt cloth. I used a piece of felt cloth that is 20cm x 20cm.


Step 3

Tie the four loose ends together and tie the 15cm piece of thread to the point where they meet.


Step 4

Tie the bottom end of the thread around your piece of driftwood. You can also use a cork or a plastic spool.


Step 5

This is what your parachute should look like. Holding the parachute by the top centre, throw it upward into the air and watch it float down.
