DIY Choker

If you are anything like me, you love expensive things, but hate the price tag. About a month and a half ago my friend Baylie and I came across the cutest choker from Frasier Sterling that is $70. My friend Baylie is super crafty and she said that we could make them ourselves with just some string and stars -- so we did (we bought our string and stars from a local bead store). I have been wearing mine a lot, so I thought that I would teach you guys how you can make your very own!

Things You'll Need: 
String (preferably a leather like material) 
Stars (or any other shape that you want) 




First thing that you're going to want to do is measure your neck. I know that Baylie made one that wraps around twice, so in that case you're going to make sure you get the measurement right. You can do so by simply wrapping the string around your neck and marking off where you need to cut. I suggest leaving a little more room than you would think because you don't want it to be too tight.


Next, start stringing your stars onto the string. I suggest leaving them about an inch or so apart because it will give off a really nice look. Make sure that you are tying knots on either side of the stars so that they don't fall off or move around!



To actually wear it, just simply tie the choker in a knot at the back of your neck. It will be super easy to get off even though it is in a knot, I promise! I like to wear my choker with anything black because I feel like it really ties in the color and just brings the entire outfit together overall. These are also really nice to make a statement with if your outfit is a bit more plain.




I hope that you guys enjoyed this post, please let me know if you would like anymore DIY posts in the future! 

xoxo,
