How do you seal embroidery?

How do you finish embroidery without a hoop?

Clip the top of your embroidered piece to wall hooks or a quilt hanger so you can hang the piece on any wall in your home. For a more rustic look, prop a ladder against the wall and drape the top of your embroidery over a rung. This looks really great with large embroidery pieces that would be difficult to frame.
