Nice hack. Here's another take on the same problem, but you'd have to drill a small hole in the fork. You could even drill that hole on the backside of the fork where it wouldn't show:

"Bicycle Bill"

You could also have found someone with a drill press and run your own hole through the lower end of the steerer tube (or as you call it, the fork crown).


Right, but both of those would have located the fender too high due to the suspension-corrected length of the fork. That's why I put in the second photo "Here’s the fender in the high position, zip-tied directly to the fork crown – totally unacceptable." Then I would have had to purchase the fender flute ... or make something to bring it down to the proper elevation.
@Bicycle Bill: Yes, with the fork legs welded directly thereto, I suppose it is the bottom of the steerer tube, but when it's below the crown race seat, I consider it the fork crown.
