How can I elaborate that sentence .

See example:

When the porcelaine pieces were ready, she would take them to her house and hung them on the wall.

To elaborate means to add details, to give more information.  There is potentially a great deal of information you can add to this sentence, but not all in the same sentence.  You could easily make an entire paragraph if you have the information.  What sort of pieces are you talking about?  How did she know they were ready?  How long did it take for them to be ready?  How did she go about taking them to her house?  On which wall did she hang (not hung) them?  Did she hang them on more than one wall?  Was there anything else on the wall, or just these pieces?  Why did she hang them on the wall?  You can elaborate on any part of the sentence or all the parts.
