Why spend money on something when you can easily make it yourself, right? So here are 6 simple and easy DIY CHOKERS to add to your jewellery collection. Let’s get right into it.

THINGS YOU WILL NEED:

  1. Black velvet lace 
  2. Black pattern Laces
  3. Red lace
  4. White and gold lace 
  5. White chord/thin lace
  6. Chains (you can use chains from old necklaces)
  7. Hooks
  8. Ornaments (anything you can decorate the choker with)
  9. Scissors
  10. Fabric glue
  11. Threads (as per the colours of the laces)
  12. Needle

The above mentioned items are the ones I used. You can go crazy with different pattern laces and decorative items.

VELVET CHOKER 

  • velvet choker
  • ornaments

STEPS: 

  • Measure the circumference of you neck and mark it on the velvet lace.
  • Cut the lace 1 inch smaller than the marked length. This will leave space to attach the chains.
  • Fold the ends of the lace inwards to achieve finishing and glue them. Let’s it dry.
  • Stitch the chain on one end and hook on the other with needle and a suitable coloured thread.
  • After stitching, you can decorate your choker with studs or flowers. (Secret: I used a rose hair pin to decorate…easy peasy!)

FESTIVE RED CHOKER

STEPS:

Repeat the same steps.

  • Cut the lace according to the measurement of you neck.
  • Attach the chain and hook by sewing them on the ends of lace.

  • Stitch the chain and hook with a white thread onto the ends
