So you’ve killed your first boar in Valheim, or perhaps you’ve got the trophy of an even more formidable creature. These kind of milestone kills are something you’ll likely want to treasure as you progress through the game. What better way to remind yourself of the beginning of your adventure or that epic battle where you only just made it out alive than with a trophy hung on the wall. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to hang trophies and other items on walls in Valheim.
How to Hang Trophies in Valheim
To hang a trophy, you’ll need to first make an Item Stand. An Item Stand is a piece of furniture that can be crafted once you’ve got a Hammer using four Fine Wood and one Bronze Nail.
Once you’ve got these materials, you can then open up your ‘Build Menu’, select the ‘Furniture’ tab and choose the Item Stand to craft.
With the Item Stand built, walk over to the wall you want to attach it to and interact with the wall with it selected.
Now all you need to do is select the trophy (or other item) you want to hang on the wall from your hotbar, and press that number key it’s assigned to when standing in front of the Item Stand to hang it on the wall.

Making an Item Stand
The Item Stand as we noted above requires four Fine Wood and a Bronze Nail. There are two item stands that can be built, a horizontal and a vertical one. Certain items (noted above) can only be hung on walls with a horizontal item stand, so keep this in mind before crafting.
Fine Wood can be found by cutting down Birch and Oak trees. These require a Bronze Axe to chop, which also means you’ll need to have beaten Eikthyr, the first boss.
For the Bronze Nail, you’ll first need to get Bronze by combining Copper and Tin bars. These bars are obtained by smelting down their ores in a Smelter, and then combining the Copper and Tin Bars in a Forge to get Bronze. You can then craft 20 Bronze Nails with a single Bronze ingot at the Forge.
