Scrap Happy Hot Glue Stand

My sew/craft room has become Distance Learning Central (it’s a mess). I was tired of dripping and stringy strands of hot glue stick getting everywhere. So, my husband’s thoughtfulness is the star of May’s Scrap Happy project. Ingenuity, pine scraps, nails from the garage and wood glue later: tada! A Hot Glue Gun Stand.

Mind you, this isn’t perfection; but it certainly is sparing my nerves and work space. This little project gave him something to do (Mr. Wanderer is going batty πŸ˜‰ with ‘shelter in place’).

I’m sure you’ve seen multiple images like the one below. But what harm just one more? Sharing a little positivity created by fellow faculty members. πŸ™‚

Scrap Happy is open to anyone using up scraps of anything and is hosted monthly by Kate and Gun. Check out some of the projects others have create for Scrap Happy:

  1. what a very clever idea to keep the husband busy and what a great job he did with the hot glue gun stand.

  2. Gosh, I’m overcome with envy! Not that I need a hot glue gun stand, but that you have a husband who can make stuff for you! I’m assuming the container thingy is for glue sticks?

    1. Thank you. Yes, the box on the end is for glue sticks (and I didn’t even ask him for that feature)!

  3. That is a *wonderful* idea, and your husband did a great job. You can put a little wax paper or something under the tip and then just toss it! I haven’t seen a picture like the one you showed, but I think that’s a GREAT idea, too.

    1. Oh! Good tip, thanks! Now why didn’t I think of that? Yes, our little faculty needed a morale boost back in April. We have a great art teacher (holding up “wait”). πŸ™‚
