I have a large (but not terribly heavy) wooden shield that I'd like to hang. Yesterday I used two eye screws, wrapped wire around the handle, and tried to suspend it.
Pic of the back of the shield here: http://tinypic.com/r/34ffwbk/7
Unfortunately there's no stud, it needs to hang in a very specific location, and the eye screws were too short. To be honest it was a little sub-par as a solution anyway. All the grip clamps (like you'd use to hang a broom) at the hardware store are either too big or too small.
How would you mount this? With the handle on the back, the piece extends about four inches from the wall. I'm willing to trudge back out into the frozen wasteland and hit up the hardware store again, but not if I don't have to. Thank you!

I have an 8-foor-square tapestry. Unfortunately, it has no loops or hooks so I have no idea how to hang it from the wall. Any suggestions? (more inside) [more inside]
