Measure the size of your head. Measure the size of the necklace (excluding the 2″ sizeable chain part). Take the difference and cut a piece of elastic that size. Tie the elastic to both ends of the necklace leaving 1/2 the difference of your head size and the necklace size of elastic showing. Trim off the extra.

Putting texture in your hair will keep the necklace from slipping, as well as some hairspray and some strategically placed bobby pins.

I bought a “halo” on etsy, but I’ll be wearing it as a headband.  It has a ribbon tie.headband  I’ve tried it on, and it seems like I’ll have no issues with it staying on.

Looking at it, it’s a little difficult for me to explain, but I’ll try:  The middle of the ribbon is at the loop and the two ends are threaded through the loop and the middle part of the ribbon.  That probably makes no sense… however, if you try ribbon, I think you might need to attach a little bigger jump ring at the ends so the ribbon would fit through.

Another option is tthe get a very plain headband and use embroider thread to see the necklace to the headband.
