Do you have a glue gun in your toolbox?
No, well you might want to consider it; because it's a super versatile
1. There are three
basic types of glue guns, high melt, low melt and dual temperature. High melt
guns are for more heavy-duty applications. A low melt is more for craft and
floral projects, and the dual temp - you guessed it, for both. The only trick is
to make sure that you use the right type of glue stick for your gun!
2. If you do a lot
of projects on your own a glue gun can be an extra set of hands. Run it along
wood or trim pieces and put them in place, it will set up in about five seconds
and free up your hands to add a more permanent fastener while keeping your work
3. A glue gun is
the perfect tool for reattaching loose trim on upholstery and lampshades, or use
it to add embellishments to a plain item.
4. I like to keep
my glue gun on a cookie sheet or another metal tray. This way if it leaks or
tips over you don't have to worry about something getting burned.
5. Another tip, if
your glue sets up too fast and you need to reposition, aim your hairdryer at it
for a few seconds. It will soften it up enough to move it where you need to!
