Tips and Tricks: Hot Glue Guns



Tips and Tricks: Hot Glue Guns


Keep a small bowl of ice water nearby when working with your hot glue gun.


Do not use butter for a burn it will hold the heat in!


Use tools for holding on to objects while you are glueing them.


Using thin tools is best. It is easier to hold a piece in place and have less contac with glue.


If you are working with tiny pieces, a pair of tweezers or needle-nose pliers can be very handy for keeping your fingers out of harm’s way.

Use something besides your fingers to press your two glued objects together. This is especially true if you are glueing thin materials like fabric or felt. The heat of the glue can seep through and burn your finger tips and you press the objects together using something like a popsicle stick or plastic spoon can help protect your finger tips.


Hot glue is notorious for leaving lots of spider web-style strings all over a finished projects. Grab your hairdryer and use a low-eat setting to zap them away.


You can us inexpensive plastic placemats ,specifically to use under your glue gun.


Plaid crafts hot glue gun helpers… comes with a silcone mat, finger socks, and spatulas for pressing items on to the hot glue. No more hot glue gun burns .


Strings...do a little loop in the air as you pull back this helps eliminate the strings.


Glue where you don’t want hot glue, apply some rubbing alcohol with a swab or cotton ball and it will generally pop right off, Not so with felt and some fabrics..
