Working with hot glue it’s fun. Not only does it allow us to glue materials instantly, but it also allows us to create countless pieces by simply adding a bit of creativity. Today I bring you a tutorial on how to make beads with hot glue and use them to decorate.

To make the beads I used a bath mat for its shape, but they can still be made directly on a flat surface. Put some petroleum jelly in the area where you are going to work to help and make it easier to detach them. If you are going to use a bath mat like the one I used in the video (Dollar Tree) I advise you not to wait for it to dry completely because it will make it difficult for you to detach. So when they are practically dry it is time to remove them.

If one of them has deformed at the edges, you can soften it with the tip of the glue gun by passing it smoothly and re shaping. Use a wooden stick to hold the beads when you are going to paint them. Apply nail polish to give them some beautiful color. Get creative !!!

I made some white dots but you can still mix the nail polishes and create a marbled style or paint one half of one color and the other half of another.
