You simply use the special Mod Melts glue sticks in a high temperature glue gun. Let the embellishment cool for 3 minutes and then pop them out of the mold.
Supplies for Mod Melts Garden Pots:
- Mod Melts sticks
- Mod Melts mold
- high temp glue gun
- acrylic paints
- small clay pots
- paint brush
I did have some trouble with the little bumble bee since it has so many teeny tiny areas to fill with the Mod Melt sticks. The extra ‘glue’ that oozed over the edges had to be cut off with a pair of scissors. I found the simpler designs, like the heart and flower, much easier to work with. But I have a thing for bees, I just couldn’t resist.I fully admit that I had no clue that there are both high & low temperature glue guns. Of course the 4 glue guns that I already owned were low temperature. So I had to make a trip to the craft store to get a high temp glue gun. Be sure you are using a high temp glue gun or the sticks will not work. Take my advice so you won’t have to drag two screaming kids back to the craft store, like I did.
Now for the fun part, you can use paint, nail polish, glitter, or shimmer mists to add colour to your mod melts. I used simple acrylic paint to paint my little bee’s a pale blue.
Now fill with your favourite flowers and enjoy.
So what would you use Mod Melts for?
