Chokers: The Ultimate Guide – Part 2: DIY

It’s been a while since I last posted a DIY on the blog. So happy I’m back with this very easy and creative one that any of you can make. As you know from the previous post, chokers have been worn since the French revolution and will send you to the next step of being chic. They elongate your neck and give off ‘fashion expert’ vibes. Be careful, however, in how tight they are on your neck. Not only is it dangerous, but also it doesn’t look flattering. So without further ado, take a look at the easy steps I’ve shared.

  • ribbon or any sort of cord 
  • lace string
  • lobster clasps 
  • ribbon clamps
  • jumpstrings
  • beads
  • pliers
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

DSC_0561 For the lace chocker you first need to measure how exactly you want your lace to be. Leave a few cms for the metal fastening in the back.

Close the ribbon clamps with pliers.

Add the jump rings and a lobster clasp to one of the sides.


For the pink ribbon choker you simply need to add whatever beads you want to your ribbon.

The last choker idea I came up with was to simply use a leather cord and put a tassel on. Since the cord is longer I can tie it in the front for a nice double choker.DSC_0596
