DIY Chokers: The Second Generation
Mommy & Daughter Craft time
Chances are you were a kid of the 90’s and chokers were a must have in your daily stylish life. From the mood changers to the yin and yang symbol, you likely had one for every day of the week (am I right?). I had a pretty epic collection that would have even given Drew Barrymore a run for her money back in the day…. Sadly, I don’t have a single one left, but I sure wish I did. Don’t worry if you no longer have that junior high choker collection from Wet Seal or the local dollar store (used to score the best ones there, I swear). We’ve got you and your crafty lil’ ladies covered with this quick, easy and inexpensive DIY!
- Velvet ribbon (colors of choice)
- Lace ribbon or decorative ribbon
- Stick on velcro
- Measuring tape
- Charms (Optional)
Measure your little ladies neck for the perfect fit. We did 12″ for my 9-year-old and it fit great (comfy enough to wear all day).
Cut to size (make sure you leave enough room to overlap the velcro)!
Apply stick on velcro to the ends of your cut piece of ribbon.
Apply second piece on the opposite side to make a closure.
Repeat with as many ribbons, colors and styles your heart desires. Add charms to jazz them up; or make them extra special and use as a gift to friends.
Last but not least, show off your new fashions with a couple of quick pics!
From my little lady @rainbowdesignsbylily to yours, we hope you enjoy this 90’s inspired fun craft and quality girl time!
