I am not 100% positive but they do not look cut in halves... look at the ones towards the left end. My friend owns a bar with this style and they are just glued to the ceiling, whole, not halves.

Vanessa Brunner added this to 23 Inspiring Real-Life Kitchens
She recommends painting the wall a similar brown color to start out with because some of the wall is bound to show through. "I just used double-stick foam tape to adhere them to the wall," she says. "Heat from the stove hasn't been a problem so far, and there's no humidity to speak of in Arizona — so I can't really speak to how they'd hold up expanding and contracting in high humidity areas." The photos were put up first (tile or other artwork would also look great), and the cork was arranged around the frames.

DIY backsplash. Looking for a backsplash with a little more spice? Try what sunnyvmd2b did, and go the DIY route. Just know there's quite a bit of work involved. Instead of opting for the standard tile, this Houzz user used a combination of collected and purchased corks (about 650 in total), and painstakingly cut them in half and adhered the flat side to the wall.
