As you slay more and more creatures during your journey in Valheim, you’ll undoubtedly want to learn how to use an item stand to show off your feats of strength. Perhaps a Troll just attacked your village, and you want to hang it on the walls as a warning to would-be invaders. Maybe you finally dragged a Serpent ashore and gathered its rare head as a trophy. It may be the case that you’re just starting out and want a Deer trophy adorning your cabin in the woods. Whatever the case is, you’ll need to learn how to hang trophies in Valheim.
What You’ll Need
With these materials, you can make an item stand. This comes in either horizontal or vertical. The horizontal version is great for placing items standing upright on a table or other surface. The vertical option is used for hanging trophies or items on walls.
To get Fine wood, you’ll need to use a Bronze axe. For information on how to craft a Bronze axe, use our guide on Bronze equipment. You’ll also need, of course, Bronze nails, which are also covered in our guide. Suffice to say, you’ll need to gather both Copper and Tin to make Bronze. Use some of the bars to craft nails, and use some of the bars to make a Bronze axe. Take that axe and head to the Meadows (or Plains). Look for white-barked Birch trees or large-diameter Oak trees. They will drop both Fine wood.
How to Hang Trophies
Once you’ve gathered the materials, you’re ready to build an item stand. Take out your Hammer and have a Workbench nearby. Find a nice spot on the wall and build your item stand. Now, go into your inventory, pull the trophy onto a hotbar slot, and press the corresponding number while looking at the item stand. There you have it.
