I have another original “glue as a medium” project for you all! Just like our ghost lights, you can make these festive icicle lights quickly and easily with your AdTech hot glue gun, AdTech’s clear, non-yellowing hot glue sticks, and LED lights.
Here’s another fun and unique craft project using hot glue as a medium. I hope you enjoy these spooky ghost lights! They are cheap and easy to make for Halloween. You can use string lights for decor, or even put little ghosts around a light-up necklace. Just make sure the lights are LED. They don’t heat up like the traditional incandescent lights do.
Learn how to make your own inexpensive, lightweight geodes out of hot glue sticks!
Crystals and geodes are all the rage right now. Since we did our crystal post a couple of months ago, it only made sense to make geodes too!
I love all things vintage. My boyfriend and I are both “pickers” in our spare time, and you can find us at a random antique mall, thrift store or flea market pretty much every weekend. We love “treasure hunting”, and my boyfriend has a gift for turning (what some consider) trash into cash!
While out and about, I am always drawn to the pressed glass I come across. It’s so beautiful, and not many people collect it or use it anymore. I shudder to think of how much of it ends up in the garbage.
In my latest experiment with hot glue, I decided to try my hand at making hot glue impressions from glass. It’s incredibly simple, and the result is gorgeous. Read on to learn how to make this simple project with your handy glue gun!
Yes, I know I just posted a similar project earlier this week, but with St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching I thought I’d throw this one out there!
The instructions are the same as the flower shirt (click here for that post), except that you want to make a shamrock shape out of hot glue instead.
Read on for instructions on how to make this awesome shirt for yourself, or your favorite leprechaun!
Hot Glue + Bleach = Super Cute Wearables!!
Something about t-shirt projects remind me of spring. I guess that’s because I live in New England, and most of us break out the short sleeves starting in March – wearing a hoodie or sweater over it most of the time. (New England weather is cray!)
This project is really fun and doesn’t require a crazy amount of skill. The result is a pretty batik-style design that is very forgiving to the not-so-crafty-crafter. 😉
So, let’s usher in spring with this adorable, wearable project! Grab your AdTech glue gun and read on…
One of my favorite statement jewelry pieces is a crystal necklace, made by my good friend, Jessica. I get a lot of comments on it, likely because it combines three very unique elements: a crystal, a bullet casing, and a Day of the Dead skull bead.
For a while, I thought it would be cool to make some necklaces like this on my own… until I discovered that buying nice-looking crystals (cough, ones that didn’t look like they were made of plastic) could cost $10 a pop domestically. Yikes.
Then Chris pointed out that glue sticks look an awful lot like uncarved crystals. Light bulb moment! Suddenly she was taking Multi-Temp sticks and cutting the ends off to make faux “crystals” that looked like the real deal!
AdTech glue sticks are perfect for this because AdTech’s claim-to-fame is having the clearest glue sticks in the world. They don’t have that yellow undertone that a lot of generic sticks have, so when the “crystals” are complete, they have a pure, clear sheen. Also, they won’t turn yellow over time; they’ll stay clear. They’re just beautiful!
