Introduction: Hot Glue Vase

Just a simple vase I made when experimenting with hot glue.

Step 1: Start Vase Base

Using a low temperature hot glue gun, start by making a small base for the vase to be built on, then spiral outwards until the base is the desired width.

Step 2: Start Vase

Add a second cycle of glue on top of the base and spiral upward in layers.

Step 3: Continue

Continue adding layers of glue until it is the desired height.

Step 4: Enjoy

Enjoy your vase!

Very Cool!!!!

This is actually the same principle as a 3-D printer. There are even hand-held 3-D 'printer' available which use the plastic filament (just like glue-sticks) and make free-form objects.

How many glue sticks did it take for this? And how tall is it?

Love the vase. Good luck on the Glue contest!

Wow, this is awesome! It's like the DIY version of the 3D pen that you can do at home :) and it looks like a cool tornado!

Cool! It looks like a tornado, or a water spout.

And this must be that 3D printing that all the kids are talking about ;)
