DIY Choker Necklace

There are so many trends from the 90s that I care not to repeat. I even have a few relics in my closet that I've been holding on to all these years, like a pair of floral bell bottoms that are WAY less cute than what you are imagining. But not all 90s trends are horrifying. In fact, a huge number of them I welcome back with open arms. Overalls, I missed you... Birkenstocks, c'mere... Crop Tops, 4ever... Even crushed velvet and Dr. Martens.

And choker necklaces!

So this past week I went to the craft store, grabbed a bunch of inexpensive supplies and made my own choker necklace collection... to have and to hold! I'm so in love!

Best part – you can customize this tutorial to your personal style and color preferences! Here's how it's done–

-any ribbon or trim
-2 inch chain length (add jump rings to each side if it doesn't already come with them)
-1 small jump ring (4mm)
-1 clasp
-2 ribbon ends
-round nose jewelry pliers

Using your pliers, secure the ribbon ends to each end of the ribbon or trim (make sure all stray edges are clamped down so it does not fray). Attach your chair length to one ribbon end. Attach your clasp using your jump ring to the other ribbon end.

Here's what the completed choker should look like.

See how ridiculously easy this is! You're limited only by the cute ribbons and trims you can source. So start hunting!

What do you think? Are you going to make some? I want to see a photo if you do! Tag us on Instagram #ABMcrafty :) xoxo! Elsie
