I’ve been looking for a device to drop fire on my children’s heads, and this is it!


I watch your videos every single week and love them all, I’m a big fan. I’m just saying, your statement “No chance of it falling off” is simply inaccurate. More like a practical joke on small kids— Bait your toddlers with a beautiful stocking, they grab it, and fire drops on their heads.

Seriously they look great though, I like the design and it’d be easy to make a safety alteration for anybody with kids.

I can’t believe it took this long to hear from the safety patrol!

They aren’t that heavy. If a child managed to pull one off, I doubt it would cause much harm. And the candle would simply blow out before falling.

Great project Steve. If a kid did pull it off, hopefully it would put a knot on his/her head and he/she would learn not to do it again. Hey! It’s a multi functional piece!

safety patrol to help :-)
if you bend the first 90 degree a slightly more
that will create a pressure against the mantel
usely when kids grab for the stocking its early in the morning … right
how many does have light in the candles at that time …... none
I´ll bett the stocking will crash before the hanger will fall off the mantel
so no fire or wood in the heads

great little project Steve …. like the design of being able to store it as a flatpack :-)

take care

I think the very small fire on their heads would be a good lesson to learn to not grab things. After all, its only gonna hurt a little. :) Only thing I might change would be to have the bracket screw into the bottom of the stand. Nice project nonetheless.

Thought that ran through my head as I watched this would be to use the thinnest ply and use double sided tape to stick them together for cutting out. Once cut and sanded separate them and put pieces of colored cellophane over the holes before gluing them back together. Then the bulbs will be colored.
