Champagne Cork Picture Holder

The idea for a Champagne cork picture holder came about when I made my Monogram Jute Initial, it just took me this long to get around to posting about it!
I like the look of the jute letter with the cork holder, it gives it a country-ish feel.

What you will need:
Champagne cork (or any cork really)
Nail with a flat head
Hot glue gun

The first thing you want to do is to start making the hole into the cork {remember to make a hole in the side that will NOT be facing outward.}  Make the hole by simply pushing the nail {pointy side} into the cork.  You may need a little help from mr. hammer for this part.

Next, take the nail out of the cork.  Then, push the nail back into the cork flat side first.  Once the nail is 2/3 into the cork hot glue around the base of the cork to ensure that the nail won't come out.

Now just stick that baby into the wall and hang away!
