The choker is a HUGE trend this season to say the least. I love seeing the different variations from designers and the way they incorporate different shapes and materials. Being a DIY-er, I love to challenge myself to create unique and interesting fashion of the times. So I decided to take one of my favorite fashion items, the men’s tie, and make it into a choker. Something easy that any woman can recreate. Follow the steps below to create one of your own!
One men’s tie
Embellishments of your choice: (I used a pearl trim and a small piece of lace)
Clasp of your choice ( I used small plastic snaps for time saving)
Optional No Sew: Glue Gun, Glue Sticks, and No Fray Spray
1.Wrap the skinnier edge of the tie around your neck to measure the length of your choker and cut, make sure to leave a little room- you don’t want it to literally choke you!
2. Sew the non-pointed edge so that it will not fray. (Apply No Fray Spray and let dry of you are not sewing)
3. Add the clasp of choice.
4. Sew or glue on embellishments.
5. Try on one last time to make sure it fits, then you are done!
This choker is a simple project that anyone can do. Especially the no sew version. It’s a great gift for a friend or even a Christmas present. There are only 11 more Mondays until Christmas so you only have a couple of weeks- LOL!
