Super easy DIY Chocker that is bound to complete any look.
With the passing of Coachella, we saw a previous trend make a statement in the world of modern fashion. With the help of Coachella divas like Vanessa Hudgens and Kendall Jenner the 90’s choker made its big comeback.
Wanting to incorporate this 90’s staple into my own wardrobe, I took to the Internet to see if I could get my hands on a classy yet affordable choker. I was drawn to the leather or suede chokers that are wrapped and tied around the neck for an effortless and boho look. Unfortunately for me the chokers that caught my eye sold for anywhere from 20 to 60 dollars. Yes, you read right… 60 dollars! I almost choked when I saw that (lol that was so bad). Anyways, there was no way I was going to pay 60 dollars for some string and some beads. Therefore, I raced to my local Michael’s Craft Store to create my own DIY wrap choker.
For my wrap choker, I decided to keep things simple and minimalistic, but by all means jazz up your choker however your heart desires.
- Suede lace of any color
- Gold beads (really any beads you like will do)
- Super glue
- Step 1: Measure your lace. The length of my suede lace came out to be about my arm span. I wrapped the suede around my neck a few times and then cut the tassels or the two strings that will be tied together to the length I desired. Tip: Try playing around with different lengths of tassels to achieve various looks.
- Step 2: Jazz it up. For my choker, I super glued the beads to either end of my long strand of lace, so they would stay in place. Let the glue dry for the recommended time it says on your bottle. I also knotted the ends to add some extra flare. Tip: If you don’t want to deal with the accidental super gluing together of fingers, then just try tying knots at the end of your strands; this will still keep the beads secure.
- Step 3: Rock it! It’s now time to go out and show off your new DIY wrap choker!
This DIY was so simple and fun! It literally took me five minutes and cost me less than 10 dollars! Hope you have fun using your own creativity to come up with your own designs and looks! Enjoy!
