Dollar Tree is a great resource for craft enthusiasts looking for affordable materials to create their projects. One of the most versatile tools for crafting is a hot glue gun. It can be used for a wide range of projects, from home decor to jewelry making and more. But, working with a hot glue gun can be a bit tricky, especially if you don’t have a dedicated workstation to keep everything organized and within reach. In this tutorial, we will show you how to create your own hot glue gun workstation using simple items that you can easily find at the Dollar Tree store.

This DIY hot glue gun work station is perfect for crafters of all skill levels, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced crafter. It’s easy to make and will help you keep your hot glue gun, glue sticks, and other supplies organized and at your fingertips. With this workstation, you’ll be able to work more efficiently and with less mess. You’ll be able to keep your work surface clean and clutter-free, so you can focus on your crafting.

The supplies you’ll need for this project are simple and inexpensive. You’ll need a few basic tools and a few items from the Dollar Tree store. These items include a plastic tray, a small container for holding glue sticks, and a few other basic items. This project is simple and easy to follow, and you’ll be able to make your own hot glue gun workstation in no time. So, grab your hot glue gun and let’s get started on this fun and useful DIY project!

To make a workstation or glue gun holder like this you can use items from the Dollar Tree store or similar items from discount suppliers in your country or state.

Start by gluing the crate into place. This will be the holder or storage for the glue sticks. Next using the E6000 glue, glue the metal cutter into position. The reason we don’t use hot glue for this is the heat from the gun may soften the glue and it will fall apart whilst you are using it. I especially love using E6000 as it is such a versatile craft glue and a great addition to your crafting supplies.

I found this holder works best with the mini hot glue guns. If you need space for a longer handle then consider raising the metal section up by adding some wooden coasters or wood craft blocks to raise the metal plate.
