Hot Glue Trick to Save Your Fingers

Hot Glue Trick

Are you like me and burn at least 8 of your fingers whenever you work with a hot glue gun?

Even though my brain knows the hot glue will be, well, you know, hot, my fingers forget and automatically go straight to the item being glued to press it down and sear the flesh right off my fingertips.

But an experienced hot gluer recently gave me this finger-saving tip:

Keep a spare glue stick nearby and use it, instead of your fingers, to press together the items being glued.

I tried it and it worked great! No more burned fingers!

Simple and effective!

Your fingers will thank you.

  1. This is life altering … You mean crafting doesn’t have to hurt? Yeah! Why did I never think of this…

  2. And thank you! I’m starting all my fall and Christmas crafts on Friday this is perfect timing!

  3. That is a GREAT idea! I could just kick myself for not thinking of it, myself. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I don’t actually own a hot glue gun – but I have used them in the past and yes, they are HOT! :) What a great tip!
