Wicker is a quality material known for its strength, pliability, and weather resistance, which make it a formidable material for home decor. Hanging wicker chairs have become charming additions to outdoor patios or sun rooms, and can be an easy do-it-yourself project.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Overhead beam
- One 4 inch Screw with Swing Lag Hook
- Drill with bit
- Link Chain
- Quick Link
- Egg Shaped wicker chair
Find a solid 4-by-6 inch overhead beam with an 8-foot clearance.
Drill a small hole in the beam to prevent the screw from splitting the wood. The hole size should be a couple bits smaller than the size of hangers that you are using.
Screw in the swing lag hook.
Attach two 4-foot (or shorter) chains to the overhead hook. Guide one chain around one arm of the chair, and connect the chain together with a quick link. Do the same with the other chain, but on the other arm.
Hang the chair by hooking the end of the chain up to the lag hook.

Tips and warnings
- If the chain cannot be placed around the rim of the chair, pre-dill a small hole in the chair, and screw in an eye hook. Use a connector hook to connect the chain to the eye hook.
- Use weather proof rope instead of a chain for a different look.
