I’m officially declaring this the summer of kids movie theme songs getting stuck in my head.
Just when I start to think that I’ve finally buried them deep enough in the recesses of my mind something will come along and just yank it back out again and I’m fairly certain that ‘Let it Go’ and ‘Everything is Awesome’ will haunt me for the rest of my life.
And I now have a whole new appreciation for how many times my mom had to listen to ‘The Sun’ll Come out Tomorrow’ when I was obsessed with the movie ‘Annie’.
I’m sorry Mom…so, so sorry!
Those of you with young children in your life will completely understand why it was then that when I was given the opportunity to create a fun project using Krazy strong, Krazy fast Krazy Glue! I might have had a certain song from a certain movie having to do with certain little plastic building blocks that I have seen approximately 543 times suddenly begin playing in my head again!
And why when we opened the box and saw all of the tubes of Krazy Glue my kids immediately began shouting “Look! It’s the Kragle!” 😉
Yes, yes it is children. But unlike in the movie, this ‘Kragle’ is being used for good, not for evil.
DIY Patriotic Beverage Stand
Supplies: 2 burner covers, block(s) of wood, wood star, paint and of course Krazy Glue!
I was so excited to try out Krazy Glue Craft for this project because I knew I would be putting it to the test by using it on both wood and metal.
Step 1: I wanted my beverage stand to have some height to it so I used 2 blocks of wood purchased at the craft store and glued them together. The thing I really loved about Krazy Glue Craft was that while it bonded them together quickly it also allowed me to shift the blocks a bit when I realized that they weren’t quite matching up. It’s permanent without being sooooo permanent you know?
Step 2: Next I attached the burner covers. The bottom one was turned over with the edge down and the top one was turned up so that it created a rim for holding the beverage dispenser.
Step 3: After painting the star to my liking, I put a dab of Krazy Glue on the rim of the burner cover in the middle and attached the star using a clamp to hold it in place. I also added a dab of glue to each of the points on the bottom and it stuck right to it like…well…glue! 😉 Because the tip is so tiny it really allowed me to be more precise and I loved that it was so much less messy than when I use my hot glue gun.
I had a moment where the star slipped while I was trying to attach it and the Krazy Glue got on my skin but with this ‘Craft’ version doesn’t bond as quickly so it gave me plenty of time to reattach it AND get it wiped off my skin. That’s a win/win in my book!
All that was left after the glue dried was to set up a fun little 4th of July beverage station with my new patriotic stand as the ‘star’ of the show! 😉
Isn’t it great when you can create masterpieces in minutes?
Wish you could all come over and join me for a glass of patriotic punch! I promise I won’t sing! 😉
