I've seen all kinds of clever things people have done with hot glue lately; there's hot glue snowflakes and hot glue snowmen. And I got to wondering what else I could make with hot glue.
One of my mom's favorite Christmas movies is A Christmas Story, and we watch it at least once on Christmas day. So, icicles have always been an integral part of our holiday celebration. Because of that, I decided I'd give hot glue icicles a go. And, with these, you probably won't shoot your eye out. Though, I'd watch out for glitter if I were you.
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue
- Lollipop stick
- Clear glue
As you can see, I got better with more practice. The one on the left is the last one I did. The one on the right was the first one.
Next, I decided to add a little sparkle to my icicles. I spread clear craft glue on them, then sprinkled them with and/or rolled them in glitter. I had two types of glitter: regular and extra fine. The one in the front is the one with extra fine glitter; the two in the back had regular glitter. I preferred the fine glitter, but I won't hold it against you if you want to use regular glitter.
Also, feel free to be jealous of my super awesome blue speckled shower tiles from the 70s in the background. I know everyone wants them.
