Introduction: Hot Glue Instructables Robot

One of my favorite things to work with is hot glue. Many people overlook the creative possibilities of this hot substance- and maybe after making an instructables robot, you will change your view on the subject of hot glue.

Step 1: Supplies

For this project you will need-

a hot glue gun

crayons (yellow, red, grey)

a rubber potholder


a permanent marker

hot glue sticks

***You may want to print out a picture of the robot, for reference.

Step 2: Making Your Robot

1. Start by squeezing a quarter sized pool of glue on the potholder. While the glue is hot rub the crayon on the glue, until thin. Peel away when dry. I ended up needing about 3 yellow pieces, 2 grey, and 2 red.

2. Trim the robots body parts out of the hardened glue

- arms

- head

- body


3. Glue the pieces together

4. Add detail to the robot (ex. eyes, mouth)

Step 3: Show It Off!!

Hurrah!! You made an awesome sign of your Instructables swag.

Maybe next time you could have more steps on making each part of the project, but nevertheless cool project! I always thought about using hot glue like this but I didn't know if it would work so well. Good job!

Thank you so much for the feedback! Hot glue can do so much more than create a secure bond. I will definitely take your suggestion into consideration.
