Craft Glue

SORT BY:
Craft glue is an essential item for art projects at home, school or the office. Finding the right type of glue for different crafts can be confusing. At Staples®, you can get a variety of adhesives and office supplies. Choose the ones that will work the best on each material, such as epoxies, rubber cement, silicone, and sprays, as well as fabric, wood, and hot glue.

Choosing the Right Craft Glue for Your Project
Craft glue is an adhesive that binds different surfaces together. The most common is a white, water-based glue that's non-toxic and easy to clean. You can use this on paper, cardboard, or lightweight fabrics. For woodworking projects, use a yellow wood glue. This will dry yellow, but it's more rigid than craft glue, and it's easier to sand away unsightly drips. Both craft and wood glue set in less than an hour, but take up to 24 hours to reach full strength. Hot glue is an excellent choice for crafts because the heat allows it to set faster than traditional adhesives. These come in low and high melting options. For cloth crafts, use a fabric glue that doesn't bleed through thin, porous materials and can hold up through a washing cycle. Another choice is a polyvinyl acetate (PVA) glue. This is a multipurpose adhesive that bonds to most surfaces.

Consider How You Want to Apply the Craft Glue
There are several ways to apply adhesives. Use glue sticks with small tips to apply small amounts of adhesive or to carefully bind materials in tight spaces. Glue dots are solid adhesives that are easy to clean and quick to use. You may need to apply pressure to get a good seal. To cover large areas in a short amount of time, consider using glue sticks. These are also excellent for children's crafts. You can apply rubber cement with a small brush. This works well for mounting artwork. The rubbery texture makes it easy to remove with little or no damage.

Is Craft Glue Water-Resistant?
Most craft glues are water-soluble and aren't recommended for projects that could get wet. An epoxy is a two-part adhesive that mixes to form a strong bond that's water resistant. Other options include fabric and jewelry glues. For fully submersible projects, only a marine glue is resistant enough.

How Do You Remove Craft Glue From Surfaces?
Each type of glue and surface has a different removal method. A white crafting adhesive will come off with most surfaces with just soap and water. Another way to remove the glue without harsh abrasives or chemicals is to use heat. By carefully using a hair dryer on the lowest setting or pouring hot water over the spot, you can soften the adhesive and gently wipe it away with a cloth.

What Is the Best Way to Store Craft Glue?
The average storage life of adhesives is two years. For a longer life, store it in a cool, dry location. Make sure that the container is well sealed.
