Save your fingers from hot glue burns

If you are a fellow wreather or even a serious crafter who uses a hot glue gun on a daily (or if like me, hourly) basis then you will love this product.  I've been using this for about 3 months now and I have to say everyday I love it more and more. It is called Hot Glue Gun Helpers and it is a 7-piece set for $19.00 plus shipping. Here is the product image from their Etsy page where you can purchase one for yourself:




Here is an image of how the product is packaged. I had already opened the package before I thought to take a picture so the clear plastic front is pulled of the backing giving it the white areas on the package.




After I took everything out of the box, I was pleasantly surprised that the mat was large and laid flat and not stuck in the rolled up position.




The finger tips tool: I love using the finger tips to hot glue things I need to apply direct constant pressure to.  These are also great for when applying floral picks into wreaths and the hot glue is forced up the pick towards your fingers.These tips seem to be in various sizes so there is a larger one perfect for the thumb.




The spatula tool: I use this tool primarily to stir my pan melt glue around in the pan so it will melt faster but I also like using it to smear pan glue onto items such as ornaments.





The mat tool: As you can see from the picture above, I use my mat to place under my pan glue. The mat helps to catch hot glue drips, spills and strings that fall off saving my table. But you could easily use it to rest your glue gun on when not in use.




The pencil tool: I use the rubber pencil shaped tool to hold items down too.





The tweezers tool: I LOVE the tweezers. These are perfect for when I want to dip very small items into my pan melt before adhering to my project.







You can also use the tweezers to apply pressure in hard to reach places like behind this sign.




The absolute best part is that the hot glue (pan glue or glue sticks) easily peels off when the glue is dry for easy clean up.







I just loved this product so much, I thought I would share it with you in hopes it saves you from hot glue burns.

Happy Wreathing!
