WHAT YOU’LL 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.

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

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 you’ve made it you can also change your broach to update the look or add a pop of color.
