Hanging a Painting Using Household Objects

hanging-proteas-webA few days ago I got around to hanging another of my collection of recycled canvas paintings, this time the subject was a couple of proteas I worked on over Thanksgiving, 2008. I followed the advice of my neighbor Sam Smith who suggested this inexpensive, practical technique. Glue two wine corks to the upper back of a canvas (note this is a light canvas with a width of less than 1/8 inch).  Screw or attach a hook into each end of the cork (the hooks must face each other) and thread wire between the hooks to connect them. Next, simply hang the wire over a nail in the wall! In addition to the cost benefit, the canvas creates interesting shadows on the surrounding wall.
