Use a Cork as a Picture Stand


I wanted these hand painted decorative tiles (that tutorial is coming next month!) and wanted them to be able to stand up on their own, so I thought I would hot glue some wine corks on the back. The bottom you can see that I glues them about a 1/2" from the bottom. I didn't need to modify thecork in any ways, just glue it on and then when you stand it upright it leans back slightly on to the cork and stands up the tile.

This is so clever and simple enough even I could do it! Thanks a bunch!

Such a great idea as those cardboard stands always break.

I made some decopage letters why did not not think of corks to make them stand.

This is such a great idea! I love how easy it is!!

That is brilliant - I always find frames that have no stands on them and now could use my extra corks for this! Love it!

What a genius idea! I have a few canvas photos that I've been meaning to get stands for, but I'll just do it this way since I already have everything on hand.
