25 amazing crafts to do with your Hot Glue Gun

Today I have a super fun roundup for you–25 AMAZINGLY cool crafts that you can make with your Hot glue gun! And I am not talking about felt flowers and gluing stuff together–I’m talking HOT GLUE as the star of the show! Making designs, jewelry, art! So many amazing ideas!!! If you don’t have a glue gun go BUY ONE. RIGHT NOW! (aflink) (this is the one I use and love!)

There are low temp glue guns (I only recommend these for kids) High temp glue guns. Glue guns that are small. Glue guns that take the large glue sticks (and can put out more glue) Even cordless glue guns! Adtech is my favorite.


Some other things I would recommend are Finger sleeves— (they protect your fingers from getting burned!) And this Mat. You can hot glue directly on it…and then after it cools, peel it right off! Also…these are a necessity but SCENTED HOT GLUE STICKS! So cool!


And if you need any help with your glue gun…like cleaning it, how to avoid burns and what to do to avoid those dreaded glue gun “hairs” head HERE!
