I have some exciting news to share with you all. I finally took the plunge and started my own YouTube channel! The 1st video came out the Friday before last. I just posted another one last weekend. In my latest video, I’ve covered DIY ideas and hacks for one of my favourite accessories – the choker necklace.
The choker necklace is one of those trends that will never really go away. In fact, it can be traced back to the 1st Century A.D. Over time, the trend has just continued to evolve and come back in different variations.
I clearly remember that, as a teenager, I was completely obsessed with tattoo chokers, bracelets, and anklets. While those have made a comeback, there are so many other styles of choker necklaces that you can try now. There is a whole range of materials to choose from and experiment with. Plus, it’s no longer restricted to fancy occasions. The choker can be donned with both glamorous and casual outfits. Furthermore, it can even be paired with sportswear!
I’ve mentioned 2 DIYs and 2 hacks that you can try, using items that are probably already available in your house. The best part is these tricks don’t involve any kind of sewing or complicated steps.
Listed below are the styles I’ve tried, along with the things that you will require for each one:
1. The Headband Choker: Headband with elastic back.
2. The Waist Tie Choker: Waist tie from any dress/top.
3. The Satin Ribbon Choker: Satin ribbon, measuring tape, scissors.
4. The Lace Choker: Lace fabric (you can use lace material from an old lace top, skirt, dress etc.), measuring tape, elastic, scissors, any strong glue (like Fevikwik or Super Glue).
Watch the video to find out how you can make your very own choker necklace at home. Each style is simple, quick, and extremely easy to make!
