Create a bumper for your fireplace hearth with a large pool noodle!

Or buy some pipe insulation from any hardware store - sometimes even cheaper!

Just cut the foam stick to the same length of your hearth.

Then push the pool noodle onto the edge of your hearth.

The tension of the foam trying to revert to its natural shape is what holds it in place.

If you have a toddler that will pull it off, use some removable Command Adhesive tabs - you can buy them without the hooks.
