Lamp shades and hot glue guns...

Today I decided to try out my new hot glue gun that I recently purchased. I have been eager to give it a whirl and as I sit here typing one handed I thought that maybe I should warn others of the dangers of the seemingly harmless gluing apparatus.

Firstly, one should never attempt to catch a falling blob of glue, as the name of the tool suggests the glue is in fact HOT!

And secondly, one should not glue the whole rim of a lampshade and then attempt to attach the fabric. Funnily enough once the glue cools slightly it sets... hard!!

Here are some before and after pics. The lamp is in my son's bedroom. Not too bad considering the second half of the lampshade was finished with one hand!
