Glue Gun Stands

Glue guns are fabulous but we have a problem with them flipping on their side – especially the smaller low melt ones.  It happens all the time – use it…set it down…it falls over.  Not good!  Thanks to a tutorial by Shanty 2 Chic, we have fixed that issue.  Sunday afternoon we built twelve of these glue gun holders.  Problem solved!  Our older students are going to love these!
