1. Hem Pants

You're in a rush and just realized your hem has gone down for the count. Get out that glue gun and go to town. Later on, just peel the dots of glue off or leave it on while you sew. Use only small dabs and not full lines of glue: This makes removing the glue easier, and it won't stain the clothing. When I have done this in the past, I usually forget, and the glue just remains unseen. Washing the clothing has no effect on the glue's adhesion.

2. Fix Buttons

You're running out the door and notice you have a button that is about to fall off. No time to sew it? Just run some hot glue over the threads and go. Your button will stay in place, and when you have time to sew it, the glue will just pop off the plastic. Unlike clear nail polish, the hot glue won't damage the button.

3. Emboss Cards

The glue gun is perfect for embossing just about anything: In other words, it adds a decorative raised ridge to any surface. Once you are happy with how it looks, just apply nail polish over it for a high gloss lacquer finish or use a colored stick. You can also use a glitter stick.

Embossing can be done in several ways. You can write words or draw a design on a flat, nonporous surface, let it dry, and peel it up. You can then attach your design to a card with a little bit of glue. This way you can trim it to perfection.

Another way is just to write directly on the card itself. The only problem with this is that hot glue on paper doesn't clean off well if you make a mistake. It usually takes some of the paper with it if you remove it.

4. Make Expensive-Looking Christmas Ornaments

Glue guns are great on glass and if you make a mistake, just peel it off. Apply it to the outside of plain glass Christmas ornaments to give them a 3-D effect. I usually use colored or glitter glue.

If you don't have the right colors, you can use clear glue and then apply nail polish over it. You can apply glitter while the glue is wet or afterward using some gloss mod podge glue.

5. Halloween Spider Webbing

Most crafters hate those threads you get using low temp guns, but even high temp guns will spin webs for you, so why not use it to your advantage at Halloween? Apply a dab of hot glue to anchor the web and while blowing on the glue, pull it to a different anchor point. Keep repeating it until your web is done. When Halloween is over, just run your hand through the glue, and it cleans up fast.

6. Create Scrapbook Embellishments

I bought a silicone mold, and it was so delicate that I was never able to make anything from it. That was until I used the glue gun. No matter how delicate the mold, the glue gun captured the design perfectly. Apply nail polish as a final step and you have the perfect embellishment in just minutes.

If you want, you can use two different colors of hot glue in the mold, just be careful not to overfill it. (I have put in too much glue, and the embellishment didn't sit right on the paper.) It's best to underfill rather than overfill. Make sure the glue gets into all the corners. You can do this by taping the mold against the table surface.

Another trick is to dip the tip of the glue gun into the flow of the glue and not above it. If the glue is allowed to drip, it cools slightly and doesn't flow as well. I use the tip of my hot gun to keep it flowing. Test your mold material first before you do this. If the gun is too hot, it can melt the plastic on some molds.

It is fine to use plastic candy molds. You may want to use a drop of mold-release such as cooking spray: It won't effect the embellishment, and it prevents the glue from sticking to the plastic of the candy mold.

7. Create a Mold in Seconds

Do you like to use polymer clay? Or maybe you do cake decorating? Did you know that instead of buying expensive molds, you can make them with hot glue for only pennies? Squirt out a large dollop of hot glue and then push whatever it is that you want to mold into it. Wait for it to harden and you have your mold. This works best with smaller objects because the glue cools quickly.

If you're going to make molds, use high temp glue. It flows easier than low temp and stays liquid longer, so you have time to make a larger dollop and set your object.

You can also make the mold but color in the area where the object was with a sharpie marker for a different-looking embellishment.

8. Decorate Windows for Holidays

Apply the glue from a glue gun directly to your windows to create holiday magic. It peels off glass quite easily. Did you know glue sticks come in all sorts of colors, plus some that glow in the dark?

9. Make Jewelry

Hot glue makes wonderful jewelry. We made a bracelet entirely of hot glue. Kids love it!

10. Opening Up A Can

Place strips of hot glue over the palm of a cotton glove. The glue will grip the top of any stuck jar.

How to Use Hot and Low Temperature Glue Guns

  • Use a high heat gun when you are working with metal and wood.
  • High heat glue sticks are harder and a little stronger.
  • Low temp can be used on paper and plastics.

A Note on Hot Glue Gun Burns

I have been working with glue guns since I was a young teen and even though I use them all the time, I still get burned. The temp of a high temp gun is over 300 degrees while a low temp is around 170 degrees. There is a huge difference between being burned by a high temp gun and a low temp one. When I work with a high temp gun, I keep ice water next to me. The burns can be severe and will continue to burn until the glue hardens. If you try to pull it off, it doesn't work, and you get burned on the hand you use to pull the glue off with as well. But if you dunk the hand immediately in the ice water, you can halt the burn and remove the glue faster. Keep ice water on hand at all times.

Children should not work alone with high temp guns.

        Crayons are a different type of wax and while they will heat and melt the wax gets very thin and for most people it gets all over the place. I have one for crayons but won't use it for the glue gun after because of the mess. You should have seen my kitchen after my daughter tried it.

        You can also use crayons in your glue gun. I bought one of the small inexpensive ones to use strictly for the crayons. When you want to switch colors just run some of the clear glue stick through it to get rid of the color you were using.

        Not a dumb question at all and it depends on the size. It's good for tiny molds. I have done those, but once I made the larger ones the glue gun glue hardened before it was out of the gun. The only thing I can think of is trying it. My bad ideas always out number my good ones, but when I get a good idea it's worth all the effort.

        I have used a glue gun for quick repairs on clothes before, and also to make snowflakes to hang on trees, for hours and hours at a time. Thanks to the shout out to the spiders of the world. We had a big green one eat a wasp yesterday. We live in Texas and have giant black widows and a certain breed of brown recluse that is also plentiful. I was thinking and thinking about different ways to make molds for various parts of the sculptures I am making, and I know a lot of crafty stuff, but you beat me on this one by FAR! I only saw the the fairy house and the mask so far, LOVED both, I am going to make fairy houses as well. HEY, you could also probably use the glue to cover the inside of tabletop fountains, at least the places that aren't taken up by your own little rock waterfalls and stuff. You could probably even glue some sand on the top layer very carefully with a little tool. I bet you would be really fun to craft with. Could you just help me figure out my website now? Haha. Many many thanks

        The spider in the photo is a black widow. They don't die with poison very easily. Living in the desert we see them all the time. They move very quicky too and seem to step over poison. I used the glue gun to get rid of that one. I happen to have had it handy and hot. It prevented the spider from moving and me from getting too close to it. I also stopped a line of ants with it. I didn't really kill too many ants, but I think I plugged up the hole where they were getting in near my sink. The line never returned. I did have to sacrifice the roll of toilet paper along with the spider but considering I had a screaming kid on the toilet it was worth the quick exchange of rolls. It's a silly way of using a glue gun, but it did work. I have no mercy for spiders that can kill my family or at least put them in the hospital. Other spiders get escorted out of the house gently. I don't hate spiders. They kill other bugs that are way worse. If they live outside it's a fair game. Walk into my house and it's a dog eat dog world.

        The socks are probably the easiest of all the projects on there. Go to Google and get a coloring book photo of the socks you like. Put two layers of tin foil down on a flat surface and then the photo on top. Trace hard. Life the photo, there will be lines in the tin. Spray with cooking spray (A MUST). Follow the lines, let cool and peel. BINGO

        The spider was easy. I caught a fly with it, but it ended up getting glued to my desk and was pretty gross to remove. I have given up extermination by glue gun after that. The spider worked because my hand didn't have to go near it and it dripped right onto paper. You should have seen my daughter's face when I ran in with the glue gun instead of the poison.
