Keeping in mind the materials you have to work with, cut the cardboard and felt into the size and shape you want your necklace to be.

2. Assemble the Necklace

Glue the felt to the cardboard and punch holes where you want your ribbon to go, then tie the ribbon long enough so it can easily be pulled over your head.

3. Decorate

With the Oasis floral adhesive, begin on one side of the necklace and start gluing down your flowers, succulents, air plants or other desired elements.

4. Fill in the Gaps

Keeping a good design flow is key: Cluster colors together to make an impact or choose a focal point to add interest. Fill in any open holes with reindeer moss and make sure to cover any details you want hidden.

5. Style

Voila! You have a beautiful floral necklace that can be worn in place of a corsage or simply to add a unique accessory to your outfit. It can also be styled as a headpiece or even a belt—the possibilities are endless.
