Introduction: Wall Mounted Skull Headphone Stand

I recently re arranged my home rehearsal room and one feature that I had (wall mount for my tablet using a tom bracket) became obsolete. I have another bracket installed that holds a lcd, so i figured i would re-purpose it. Since I need a couple of headphone stands, and been so close to halloween... i could no resist to do a Skull Headphone Stand/Wall mount.

I bought a cheap Halloween prop skull at Lider (our version of wal****t) and added a "spider nut" using some hot glue, then using an old cymbal stand part (like a simple memory lock) attached it to a goose neck and then to the wall mounted clamp.

So... Here we go.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

For the materials you need

  • A Prop, big enuff to hold your headphones. (in this case, plastic skull)
  • Means to hold the prop (in this case, tom bracket for the wall mount, microphone gooseneck for the arm and metal clamp to attach to the prom.)
  • Mounting options on the prop it self ( in this case, T or "spider")

Tools

  • Something to drill

I will depend on your prop, in my case it was soft enuff for me to be able to "drill" using some scissors

  • Something to glue

Hot glue worked for me.

Step 2: Get the Prop

Choose what you want to use. I went for the classic and cheap halloween skull prop

Step 3: Drill It

In this case, the plastic was quite soft so i used a blade to "drill" the hole

Step 4: Attach the Mount

Step 5: Put It Together

Put your pieces together making sure you have the proper length / alignment.

Step 6: Mount It to the Wall.

I´m re purposing a previously installed Tom bracket for this. This makes for easy removal.

Step 7: Enjoy

Now just rest your headphones on it. In this case, I can use the jaw to hold the cable.

Not bad for a 5 minutes build.

Nice. Have you had any issues with the plastic warping from the weight of the headphones, or does the mounting pin carry the whole load?

Hei! No issues so far. The plastic its really strong and the headphones are not that heavy.

Thank you sir. Now I just need to build a spider box to store guitar picks and I'm ready for a Halloween jam. :)
