Many of you asked this question (as did I!) after Courtney referenced her hot glue skillet in her Ornament Tree Tutorial. I asked Courtney to explain what it was and where it could be found. Here’s her response:
I have had a lot of people ask me what in the world a hot glue skillet is. Allow me to share with you one item that without its existence, my craft room would not be complete. Ladies and Gents, I present to thee, my Little Glue Skillet!
I bought it at Michael’s (a local craft store).
All you have to do is cut up some hot glue…
And plop it into the skillet! Turn it on, let it melt and soon you can enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness of hot glue in liquid form.
I use mine when I need to dip things rather than put the glue somewhere specific. Be careful not to dip your fingertips though (it hurts! I know- it happened to me).
I did some online research in case you don’t have a Michael’s by you. I found some hot glue skillets on amazon here. At Michael’s I paid $4.79 ($7.99 minus 40% off coupon). I love it and it makes life easier!
PS: While I wish they did, nobody (Michael’s, Surebonder, Amazon, etc) paid me at all to write this post. The opinions expressed are honest and mine. Happy Crafting!
Thanks for sharing such an awesome product Courtney! This would be a perfect Stocking Stuffer!!
Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
