Creative dad makes Christmas tree childproofWhats wrong with this picture? The Edwards family with their upside down Christmas tree (Image: Mercury) A resourceful dad has created the ultimate childproof Christmas tree - by hanging the 5ft festive fir from the ceiling complete with baubles and tinsel. Dad-of-three Stuart Edwards, 38, decided to take matters into his own hands through fear that two-year-old Kai would try to climb on the tree. The self-employed joiner, from Leslie, in Fife, Scotland, attached the tree to the ceiling last year and a picture of Kai trying to reach up and touch it went viral. Now, Kai is a few inches taller and Stuart and wife Jenni, 38, were worried that he would be able to grab hold of the hanging tree.

Resourceful: Stuart Edwards put his joinery skills to use to suspend the tree from the ceiling (Image: Mercury) Stuart said: Kai was only one last Christmas so we knew he would be all over the tree, grabbing it or trying to pull the baubles off it like any baby does. So I just wondered how I might be able to keep it out of his way - and I realised I could hang it from the ceiling. Everyone thought I was mad at first but once I managed to get it up there and it stayed up with all the baubles on it, they all loved it. Out of reach: Kai isnt quite tall enough to get to the festive fir (Image: Mercury) Kai was mesmerised by it and kept reaching up to touch it, but it was just a few centimetres out of reach. We got a lovely picture of this and put it online and suddenly it went viral. It got more than 100,000

shares and suddenly we had people from all over the world commenting on it. Most people absolutely loved it but there were some people who said we shouldnt have done it and should just teach our child discipline. Tree-mendous work: Stuart has positioned the festive fir just out of Kais reach (Image: Mercury) But we didnt want to spend the Christmas period shouting and thought this was the perfect solution. All the family l

ove it and people always comment on it when they come round. And

Kai loves it too - hes always staring up at it and smiling and sometimes you can see him thinking about how he might be able to get to it. Stuart bought the unusual artificial black Christmas tree from Next three years ago after spotting it in a window display. The tree was not for sale but Stuart managed to persuade the store to let him buy it from them once the festive period was over. Upside down: Like most trees, this one has baubles and other decorations (Image: Mercury) He attached it to the ceiling using a chain and screws and angled the branches slightly upwards so that baubles would stay on without any glue

or tape.

But luckily the roof of that room is slanting so I was able to move it up higher, just out of his reach. It was a bit of a joint effort between Kai and I in getting the tree up. I did all the hard work but I relied on Kai to keep reaching up to grasp for it, which let me know how high it needed to be - so it was a team effort! I have a reputation in the family as being creative and I do like bringing unusual designs into our home rather than just doing things the same as everyone else. Its nice to have some personality in the place.
