Step 1: 

Once you are sure you have your supplies, decorate the cork with markers. I'm drawing a face similar to that of a totem pole, using earth tones like black, brown, and orange.

Step 2: 

Once decorated, screw in the eye bolt at the top of your cork.

Step 3: 

For the necklace string, you want to cut about 2 feet of leather thong (or twine or other string) off the spool. Measure how much string you will need by trying the string around your neck to determine the appropriate length. Once cut, thread it into the hole of the eye bolt and tie a knot on the end. Tip: when establishing the necklace length, make sure it fits over your head to easily take it on and off.

Step 4: 

Awesome! You're now ready to hula in style!

You can add more corks to elongate the "totem pole" look on your necklace. Just use little jump rings to attach the screw eyes of each cork together.
