What youll need to make your Lace Choker:

  1. About 10.5 inches of lace (more or less depending on how much space you want to leave open in the back)
  2. Ribbon – I used 2 pieces 16.5 inches long each
  3. Broach
  4. Scissors – small embroidery scissors are best
  5. Sewing machine or needle and thread

Step 1
Carefully cut out the part of the lace that you want to use.
Or if you like your lace the way it is you can skip this part.Lace Choker DIY

Step 2
Sew 1 piece of ribbon to each end of the lace. This is a very small amount of sewing so its up to you whether you machine stitch it or sew it by hand, just make sure its secure.Lace Choker DIY

I love how many different things I can wear this lace choker with. It works to spice up a basic tee or creates an elegant accessory to an evening look. Once youve made it you can also change your broach to update the look or add a pop of color.Lace Choker DIY
