Need to affix hanger to single decorative tile

I dug out an old clock made of one single decorative tile and am replacing the movement. When I pulled the movement out the cardboard backing on the tile - that held the 'hanger' and 'easel stand' pulled off and fell apart. Apparently, the glue was only good for 15 years.

The back of the tile has a 'rough' back (imprint from canvas it was 'laid' on). What should I use to glue a new hanger back onto the tile?

Thanks for any ideas....

On the plus side, I can still buy a movement made in the USA.


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

Guerilla tape or glue.

Since there is no real weight to this thing you are hanging. See if you can find the type of hanger that is no more than a horizontal brass bar with notches. It will engage a brass brad head in the wall. A length of framing wire held in place with strong tap on either end will work. You can spot glue a miniature super magnet and have it engage a screw head in the wall for as flat an install as you want.
