The Hot Glue Gun Holder, like all of the items in our Desk Maid product line, comes in a flat white finish. There are two good reasons for this. The first, white goes with everything. The second, white is easy to change into something else. I had a really great time transforming my plain white Hot Glue Gun Holders using the following techniques. If you customize your Hot Glue Gun Holder, I hope you'll take the time to photograph it and send me the photo or at least post it on our Facebook Page.
Everything's better with BLING!
I traced the size of the glue stick holder/cup onto a piece of paper, and then laid out the bling design to be sure I would have enough of each color before I started gluing.
Make mine a little "antiquey."
I'm not sure "antiquey" is a word, but it certainly describes the look I got with this Hot Glue Gun Stand customization.
I used tissue paper with a white background (very forgiving), and Mod Podge to create an old fashioned hand-painted look. I added a few "red bling" berries, because, as I noted above, everything's better with bling.
Hot Glue Gun in the Garage
If you're like me and you live in a house with men, anything that even remotely resembles a tool ends up out in the garage or the shed on a workbench. My Hot Glue Gun Stand was no exception. I found it there quite by accident, which is why I was initially motivated to "bling" mine up.
To create this "metal" look Hot Glue Gun Stand, I bought a small bottle of "tin" colored paint. The paint was a little tough to work with, I think I would take the time to sand the surface of my Hot Glue Gun Stand if I was going to do this again.
I added "sticker" diamond plate to the front section, and a few "sticker" screw heads on corners, too. Click on the image to view it larger and you'll be better able to see these details. This was a fun project and now that it resides in the garage, I don't need to worry about my Hot Glue Gun Stand disappearing off my desk.
