This is best to use your hot glue gun strictly for this, because this one gets messy! You can buy one for really cheap, so just have it on hand. Start by peeling off the label of the crayon. Then put the crayon where you would put the glue stick. Let the glue gun heat up, and it will begin to melt the crayon. Then on a piece of paper you can begin to make a design. This is a bit messy so have some newspaper underneath to catch drips!
Seal up the holes of bath toys with a drop of hot glue. This will keep water getting in the toy and growing mold and mildew.
Apply little dots or lines of hot glue to the back of a rug, so it doesn’t slip on hard wood or tile floors.
Decorate a Vase
Take a glass vase and with a hot glue gun, create lines all around the vase or a design to give it new life!
Grab your hangers, and take your glue gun and put a line at the top of the hanger where the shoulder of the shirt would go, or dots. This will give the hanger traction and keep your shirts from slipping off.
If your little one or yourself wears slippers and find yourself sliding on the floors, do this! Add some dots or lines to the bottom of the slippers, it will create some traction as you walk across the hard floors.
Custom Roller Stamp
Take a piece of PVC pipe, plastic rolling pin or something along that lines. Then create a design with your hot glue on the plastic. Then use it to roll onto a piece of paper or wall, to create your custom look. You can use this roller on any kind of project to make it one of a kind!
Homemade Tap Shoes
Grab an old pair of shoes, or buy some at a yard sale or thrift store. Hot glue some pennies on the bottom side of the shoe. Do a few rows on where the heal goes and toes. Then put the shoes on and start tapping away! This works great at keeping kids entertained!
