This Macrame’ Chocker is a great teen craft! Something they will actually wear. Makes a good fund raising craft too.

Cut hemp into two 10\' lengths. Fold each piece so one end is 18" long and the other end is 8½\' long. Hold both pieces together at the fold and tie an overhand knot so you have a loop no bigger than 3/4".
