If you’ve been following along for the past three months, you’ll know that one of my resolutions for 2017 was to go for a year without buying any clothes or accessories. I did, however leave myself a bit of wiggle room in the form of this important caveat: I’m allowed to make myself things to wear. This blog is called Homemade Banana, after all.
That brings us to this pretty little suede choker. After spying a similar style on one of my favorite bloggers, I figured I could easily make my own version. Less than $15 dollars and about five minutes later (no joke!), I was winding this necklace around my neck. I opted to tweak the design a bit and make a wrap style that instantly creates a cool, layered look. It’s the perfect piece to add a feminine finishing touch to any outfit that needs a certain little something to pull it all together.
For this project, you’ll need the following:
• 6 feet of suede cording
• gold aglets
• needle-nose pliers
1. Trim the suede cording to six feet. Feel free to adjust the length if you want the necklace to be a little shorter or longer.
2. Add an aglet at one end of the cord and gently clamp it on with the pliers, making sure to use even pressure so it doesn’t get bent out of shape. Repeat on the other side.
3. Seriously, that’s it!
