Introduction: DIY: Leather Choker

I saw this beautiful picture of Taylor Hill, wearing a Lili Claspe choker. Lili Claspe is a jewelry brand designed by the talented Stephanie Tchamanian. It-girls like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner love Lili Claspe. I was so inspired by the choker that I wanted to remake it myself. So I decided on this awesome new DIY : Leather Choker.

The stunning Taylor Hill with the Lili Claspe choker, really inspired me.

Step 1: ​What Do You Need for This DIY:

– Leather fabric

– Measuring tape

– Satin ribbon

– Black thread

– Needle

– Leather hole maker

– Clasp

– Scissors

– Pen (marker)

– Ruler

Step 2: Mark a Rectangle

– Measure your neck circumference

– Draw a rectangle on your fabric (length= neck circ., width= 2,5 cm)

– Cut it out

Step 3: Mark the Holes

– Now you have a rectangle in front of you

– Mark on the long sides the holes you wish to make for the ribbon (I marked the dots 0,5 cm from the edge of the long sides and left a space of 1,5cm in between the dots)

Step 4: Make the Holes

– Take the leather hole maker

– Make holes where you put the dots. Make sure to push hard enough.

Step 5: Wrap the Ribbon Around the Rectangle

– Time for the ribbon

– Make a knot at the end of the ribbon

– Push the ribbon through your first hole starting from the back of the fabric. Pull it until the knot blocks the hole.

– Go over the long side of the rectangle en push again from the back the ribbon through the second hole (look at the picture below)

Step 6: Make Knots

– If you finished your first long side, make a knot at the other end of the ribbon.

– Repeat the previous steps for the other side length.

Step 7: Add the Clasp

– The only thing left to do is to fasten the clasp

– Place the clasp so that, when it is closed, the center is at the ends of the rectangle

– Secure it with thread and needle

Step 8: Ready!!
