My favorite glue of all time to use for hair bow making is a high temp/high heat glue gun with high temp glue sticks. You can find these at any craft store and they are just a few dollars. The photo below is the gluegun I use and I purchased at Michael’s:
The only issue to be aware of when using the higher temp guns (you can also get a regular gun or even a low heat one) is the increased chance of getting burned because of the higher temperature used to melt the glue.
Hot glue finger caps will be life savers for you when working with hair bows and lots of hot glue. Here’s what I’m talking about: Mod Podge Hot Glue Finger Caps Especially when using hot glue for flower hair bows, you’ll want to be very careful to not burn your finger tips. I’ve been using hot glue for bows for over 3 years now and haven’t burned myself until recently. Let me tell you, the burns were BAD. I got blisters there and it burned for days. Be VERY careful working with a glue gun so the same doesn’t happen to you and also consider the extra few dollar investment in the finger caps. They are easy to work with once you practice a bit and will save your fingertips from the potential burns.
This is my most popular Youtube video on hair bow making of all time. It’s over 1 million views and has tons of comments and likes! I wanted to be sure to share it with you in case you hadn’t stumbled across it yet. It’s obvious that people LOVE simple and fun hair bows that can be made in about 5 minutes with just a few basic supplies.
I do use a hot glue gun (high temp version) because I feel that bonds ribbon the best and also allows the project to dry the quickest. Feel free to experiment with other types of craft glue like E6000 but the smell is a bit overwhelming and it does take quite some time to dry which is annoying when you want to complete a bow in just a few minutes.
Did you make a bow after watching the video? I’d love to hear about it! Let me know in the comments below.
