    <div>I came thiiiiiis close to a "here let me google that for you" response.</div><div>Instead, I googled it for you.</div><div>Here are a few links: <a href="http://offbeatbride.com/2009/05/diy-handfasting-cords" title="Offbeat Bride HFC" rel="nofollow">click</a>, <a href="http://www.etsy.com/listing/69095539/custom-braided-handfasting-cord?utm_source=googleproduct&utm_medium=syndication&utm_campaign=GPS" title="Etsy Custom HFC" rel="nofollow">click</a>, <a href="http://revdebi.com/book-your-wedding-with-revdebi/ceremonies/wedding-traditions/handfasting-cords/how-to-make-a-handfasting-cord/" title="How To" rel="nofollow">click</a>, <a href="http://abrideagain.blogspot.com/2009/10/handfasting-cord-tutorial.html" title="Another How To" rel="nofollow">click</a>.</div><div>
    </div><div>I simply entered "handfasting cords" in google.  As far as whether or not to make it yourself.  You need to decide how crafty you are.  Look at some of the tutorials and what materials other people are using.  If you think it is something you could do well, why not make it yourself?!  I know I am not that crafty, so if a friend couldn't do it, I would custom order something like this.  Know thyself!  ;)</div><div>
    </div><div>Good luck and I hope this helps!</div>

    I am a HUGE supporter of Etsy lol and regularily resort to that....
    That being said, I searched just 'handfasting cord' and got a whole bunch of responses, you could probably even search colour specific :)

    I'll be honest, I make and sell handfasting cords through Etsy and my shop is http://www.etsy.com/shop/bindingties
    That said, if you want to make your own then go for it, thats what I did and how my business started in the first place!  And if you need any advice on braiding or tieing off the ends or stopping bits fraying, or anything else thats got you stumped, just shout - no obligation to buy anything, I'm happy to help :-)
