Step 1: 

Attach small screw eyes to the top of the cork.

Step 2: 

Download and print the template from the Stats tab above.  Cut out the face you like and color it.  Note, if you are going to be using Mod Podge to attach your paper to the cork you need to use a permanent marker to color the paper.

Step 3: 

There are three ways to secure the paper to the cork.  First is with Mod Podge.  Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the entire surface of the cork.

Step 4: 

Roll the paper around the cork and secure.  Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the paper.

Step 5: 

Or you can attach the paper with a glue stick.  Apply a thin layer of glue over the entire cork.

Step 6: 

Wrap the paper around the cork and secure.  Cover the paper with another layer of glue.

Step 7: 

Finally, you can simply tape the paper to the cork.  Place a small piece of tape on one end of the paper.

Step 8: 

Roll the paper around the cork and secure the other end with another piece of tape.

Step 9: 

Cut a piece of string or cord to make your necklace.  String the cord through the screw eye.

Step 10: 

Now, all that is left is to decorate with beads.  Use whatever beads you have on hand to embellish your necklace.  I like to use a large bead and string both ends of the cord through it to begin.

Step 11: 

When you are finished beading tie the ends together to form your necklace.
