I have a confession to make: I am a very crafty girl who does not own a hot glue gun. I’m afraid of them, and I’d rather do just about anything other than work with molten glue. (You see, there was this traumatic incident when I was a little kid involving the back of my hand and a malfunctioning glue feeder. Let’s suffice it to say that I still have the scar, and I now know better than to try to peel hot glue off of skin. Eew.) But, thanks to the Felt Rosette tutorial from Mrs. Priss, I might finally be forced to revisit my old nemesis.
Okay, it’s not exactly the rosettes’ fault. They definitely don’t require hot glue. It’s just that I really, really want to make hair clips with the darling little buds that I made this weekend, and I can’t think of a better way than hot glue to attached them to a barrette. I considered floral wire or sewing with clear thread, but both seem like they’d just end up poking me in the head and being uncomfortable.
So, all-knowing crafty folks, what’s your verdict? Is hot glue the only way to go, or is there something that you’d recommend that I might be less terrified to use? (Pretty please?)
