Last week I was invited by our neighbours Homemade London to attend a workshop hosted by @BoschDIYUK.
It was glue guns at the ready, and well who knew they could be quite such fun. A room full of mummy bloggers and lifestyle editors on a quest to #designityourself. Presented with a wooden bird box and a table full of pretty things that really only a 5 year old girl should get so excited about, it was time to get our craft on.
The glue pens are cordless – now i’ve only ever used one back in wood work class at school but I gathered from the room of avid glue gun fans that this was simply excellent. Just insert your glue stick, press the on button and you’re away! Easy to use, quick drying and no burns – bonus!
TV Presenter Cherry Healey was MC for the evening, judging the best of the bird boxes so the craft stakes were high. I went for a classic mosaic tiled roof while others opted for the more is more look, trust me it’s very easy to get carried away with a glue pen.
Now i’ve got the crafting bug and my very own glue pen (thank you Bosch) I can’t wait to get started on my next challenge, an uber stylish ping pong lampshade. I’ll keep you updated on my progress and if successful will post the instructions here on the blog so you can give it ago and #designityourself.
