needed wanted a new glue gun, since my old one was not working properly and one cannot be a professional blogger without a proper tools right? And a new gun needs a holder, so, a cutlery tray became a glue gun holder!
I thought I’ll share this great hack and you can adapt it to your needs. A wooden/bamboo cutlery tray will look much better, but, I used what I had since, you know, I already splurged, lol!
These trays are great for holding the glue gun AND there are space to keep the glue sticks too!
I asked hubby to make a small hole to fit the plug through. He cut it with a carpet knife. You do not need to cut a hole, though, the wire can go over the rim. I just found it made the gun fall over, hence the hole.
I added a cupcake liner so the glue won’t mess in the tray and one can simply throw away the liner when dirty. Then, the glue sticks found a place and voilá! The perfect glue gun holder repurposing a cutler tray!

Your information is very helpful. I have a glue gun but it’s too old and is not working properly. I need a new glue gun. Thanks for sharing the great post!
You smart ladies make me so proud to be one too. I have a big glue gun and a smaller one.
This I can put together by myself.
It is perfect.
Great idea! You could also store your tools (fingertip covers, makeup paddles, etc.) in one of the slots.
