Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get a Glue Gun
You will need this too make the melting part at the tip
Step 2: Screw Driver and Electrical Tape
You need these to take apart the glue gun and to do the body
Step 3: Get a Pair of Scissors
You will need to gut the tape off
Step 4: Optional) Get 3M Foil Tape
You will want this I the tip to do it so it does not burn itself
Step 5: Get 1 Foot Pvc Pipe
This is your main body
Step 6: Finish Up Things
Now put the cord through the pvc and then the metal part should be touching the pvc and then tape it and then tape the whole body. Tape the bottom where the cord exits and then tape 3 layers all the way around of electrical tape then 1 layer of foil tape and 1 layer of electrical tape and then plug in and try it out on plastic bags no mess just melts away. I prefer using the really hot ones cause they have more purpose than the lo-temp.
