Jasmine made a rather cool looking fillet crochet Viking longboat a couple of months ago and we needed to get it up on our wall. The problem is that it is more or less like trying to hang up a scarf on your wall – and that wouldn’t look too pretty. So we needed to mount it on something in order to put it onto the wall.
We did the simplest thing that I could think of: purchased some Medium Density Fiberboard, some upholstery thumbtacks, and some wire. I then painted an ocean onto the MDF and we tacked the crochet on top. Then we put two more tacks in the top of the MDF, attached the wire to them, and we were good to go.
If we had to do it again, I think the only thing we would change is the colors on the fillet crochet and maybe the yarn gauge. Jasmine will get it looking nicer and we will then certainly post directions here.
