DIY Chokers: The Second Generation

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!

Supplies needed:

  • Velvet ribbon (colors of choice)
  • Lace ribbon or decorative ribbon
  • Stick on velcro
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Charms (Optional)

Step 1

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).

Step 2

Cut to size (make sure you leave enough room to overlap the velcro)!

Step 3

Apply stick-on velcro to the ends of your cut piece of ribbon.

Apply the second piece on the opposite side to make a closure.

 

Step 4

You’re DONE!

 

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!

XO, Sarah
