Hot glue is typically used as an adhesive for craft projects, but rarely is it at the forefront. Use hot glue in a completely unique way by making the Prettiest Ever Hot Glue Flower Lights. The hot glue flowers can be used in a variety of ways for upcoming craft projects. Attach stems and turn them into a whimsical translucent bouquet, or attach them to strings of lights to create a DIY garland for outdoor summer parties at night. A smaller hot glue flower would also make a darling embellishment for a handmade card. No matter what you use them for, this hot glue gun craft is one you shouldn't miss.

Has anyone made these yet? It really is a clever idea, though at first it seemed like it might be pretty labor intensive, once you get the hang of it, I would imagine it could be therapeutic. I wonder if you could add some food coloring or tint or if glue sticks come in colors! Imdo,love adding the lights. If they are the newer LED lights that are cooler to the touch, so that would,work fine! Thanks for sharing!

Glue crafts are so unique. I've tried failed with one. I'm wondering if you were to succeed with this, and wanted to make enough for a string of lights, could you use an alternate method? Like cutting chunks off of a glue stick and using the parchment paper and cookie sheet in the oven, or on an electric griddle. Or, using the glue gun on a electric griddle at low heat to allow for more working time, and control. Does anyone have any knowledge on this? I feel it would also allow easier attachment of petals, and the ability to create more petals at a faster rate.

Wow, this is interesting and different. I've hand made flowers before but never thought of using a hot glue gun to make petals. I think attaching them to a set of lights is interesting. I'd try it with a set of blue lights too. I'm honestly a little skeptical about what the lights could do to the petals. Some lights do radiate heat. I think I'd plug a set in for a few hours to see if they truly remain cool before attaching the flowers. I think this would look pretty on a wreath, swag or as a cluster of lighted roses in place of a wall sconce for a party or holiday such as Easter or Christmas.
