Wedding decor can take a lot of time, effort, and money to assemble. Creating your own centerpieces can save you precious money, while adding personal charm to your wedding theme. With just a little bit of Future Glue, you can create beautiful centerpieces that will wow all of your guests and make your ceremony unique and memorable.

Use Flowers

Nothing is more romantic than floral centerpieces. Flowers exude an air of freshness while adding a pop of color to a white table cloth. Attach your favorite flowers together with Future Glue to create unique, handcrafted arrangements.

Custom Frames

With Future Glue, it’s easy to showcase your favorite photos by creating custom frames. Frames are simple to make and can incorporate special designs and messages to share cherished memories with your guests.

Party Favors

Little party boxes are attractive accent pieces which offer a fun gift for guests to open while drawing their eyes to the table. Boxes are easy to make with stiff paper and Future Glue: use your wedding colors or a striking hue to add contrast to your theme.

Tissue Flowers

If you are planning a winter wedding, fresh flowers may not be readily available. Fortunately, tissue flowers are easily made year-round. Through simply gathering tissue paper and gluing the ends together, you create the effect of a beautiful bouquet without worrying about freshness. Add bells in the center for Christmas spirit.

With a little creativity, you can make meaningful decorations that will add personal, handcrafted charm to your special day. For more wedding DIY inspiration, consult the crafting experts at Super Glue.

Super Glue is a crafty and resourceful way to revamp your home on the cheap. Its versatility lends it to endless possibilities—even transforming your furniture.

Follow these simple steps to make your own custom DIY fur ottoman for a chic update to any room:

1. Purchase a used or plain ottoman.

If you are planning on adding fur, simple is best. Used ottomans are perfect for projects like this: not only are they cheaper, but they also add character to your design for a truly unique piece. If you’re not an antique shopper, a plain ottoman will do just fine.

2. Remove the original fabric.

Strip down the ottoman to its bare bones. Once you’ve reached the cushioning, prepare your Super Glue. If the cushioning is too damaged, it may have to be replaced in order to achieve the look and feel that you desire. Fortunately, foam is very inexpensive and easy to find.

3. Prepare the fur and the glue.

Take precise measurements before cutting the length of your chosen fabric: you’ll want a continuous strip that covers the whole ottoman. Sheepskin rugs are also a great way to achieve the same effect without spending too much time and money.

Apply glue to the frame. Place the fabric over the top and make sure that it is properly secured. Trim the edges to your liking.

4. Let dry and enjoy!

Your ottoman is almost ready! You will want to let it dry for at least three days to ensure that the fabric has properly set. Once the fabric is securely attached, your ottoman is ready to enjoy.

DIY Decorative Mosaic Tray

A mosaic tray can add creative flair to any coffee table or desk for a personal touch. Best of all, you won’t have to break the bank to make one. With your favorite bowl, Bondini glue, and some old CDs, you can create a beautiful custom mosaic tray for your home with these simple steps.

Materials

-Plate or bowl
-Bondini glue
-Old writable DVDs
-Kitchen shears
-Gloss (optional)
-Grout

Directions

1. First, you will need to separate the layers of the DVDs. It is important to use DVDs for this project, as CDs only have one layer. Using the kitchen shears, cut from the edge of the DVDs to the center. Repeat on the other side, cutting the DVDs in half. Gently lift apart the two layers. Continue to work your way all the way around the DVD: you should be left with a thin silver layer to use for your project.

2. Once the layers are separated, cut the DVD halves into 6 or 7 equal pieces as if you were cutting a pizza—however, leave the ends attached to the inner ring of the DVD to prevent the shards from flying. Then, tear the pieces gently from the inner ring.

3. If your tray is going to be displayed outside, you will need to spray the DVD pieces with gloss in order for them to retain their reflectiveness. Otherwise, the reflective coating will wash off in the elements.

4. Adhere the DVD pieces to the edge of the tray with a dab of Bondini glue. Be careful not to get any glue on the reflective surface.

5. Carefully apply grout between the pieces, using a damp rag to wipe off the excess. The grout will protect you from being cut by the sharp edges, and will also add another layer of protection if you plan to leave the tray outside.

The best part of our day here at Super Glue Corporation and Pacer Technology is hearing from customers!  Whether they call us, or send us their story via our website, there is nothing we like better than talking to our customers.  I guess the fact that we have great, tried and true, products helps!!  😉

The majority of Super Glue Corporation customers – users of our brands like The Original Super Glue, Pro Seal, Bondini, ZAP, Front Porch Treasures, and Pacer Industrial – are very happy with our products’ performance.  Of course, every once in awhile they write in to ask us to perfect the product more or tweak it for their specific need; or to ask us where they can find our products, but we enjoy hearing these comments as well … they help us improve!

As a company, our roots were with the Remote Control model airplane business (this has now morphed into a whole new arena called drones!) … Many of our products were originally purposed for the hobby end of the industry.  Turns out this is a great foundation as hobbyists are some of the most detail oriented and precise people in the world!  They know what they need, they want what they need and they don’t let up until they get what they need for each part of their building process!!  Therefore, we have managed to build up quite a wide selection of high performance, job-specific products.  Many of these products end up being very multi-functional and work great across many genres!

This is where the fun comes in for us!  Hearing from people who love our products and depend on them for uses far beyond their original purpose …. we never imagined all the crossover uses, but it seems logical once you realize that many of the same issues occur in a wide arrange of hobbies, crafts, do-it-yourself projects and other fields! 

Here’s just one example of a cross-over product use:  FLY TYING!

We say, “WELL SAID” to our customer B. Byrd who wrote in to tell us:  “I have used many adhesives for finishing flys and there is nothing on the market that even compares to the strength and virtual invisibility of Zap-a-Gap.  I would like to pass on to beginning tiers to not waste their time trying any other product!”

Thank You!  Once again, a satisfied customer made our day!!

We  love hearing from consumers of our products.  Many people write in and tell us their stories about how they use Super Glue Corporation products.  This information is very important to us.  We track this valuable information and use it in our research and development process.

We are particularly impressed that our loyal customers are so honest and forthcoming with their tips … we also like that satisfied consumers tend to spread the great news about our products … we know that word of mouth advertising is the very best thing in the world and we appreciate every bit we get!   Here’s some of the interesting feedback we recently received:

1.  N.Y. states:  “I use it on my models, cars and trucks where the model glue won’t work, your stuff does awesome wonders …”

2. R.B.N. states:  “Super Glue Folks, Never in my life have I used a product as useful as this.  The gel is easy to use and most important, it can be used for several applications.  It is the best money spent in a long time.  Great product.”

3.  D.N. writing about Bondini Gel states:  “I use it to put the cue tips on my cue sticks.  It works great … some people said that it wouldn’t work and the tips would come off -Not$!!!!!!”

4.  A.P.  states:  “I have dreadlox that are about 2 feet long in the longest places and sometimes they break for various reasons.  Anyway I have been using your product specifically, because [competitor’s] doesn’t last.  I’ve used super glue to mend or re-attach my lox when they break or fallout, and its the only thing I trust.  I’ve been growing my hair for 9 years, so I’m glad to have such a perfect product to trust … thank you Super Glue, the Dreadlox’s friend.”

5.  M.L.D. writing about the Accutool states:  “The best thing I like about your Super Glue Accutool is that it’s the only product of it’s kind that I can use repeatedly with confidence that it won’t be glued to itself.  Every time I’ve used it, the lid comes off easily, and it dispenses the glue just like it did the first time I used it.  Thank you very much for saving me a lot of frustration.”

6.  T.D.G. states:  “I am one of the rosary makers at Santa Tersita in Buena Vista, Duarte, CA. … I am one of the two who do the knot/cord rosary.  I have tried all types of glue to harden or firm the cord/knot crucifix in the rosary … I was about to give up making the knot/cord rosaries … a clerk … advised me to try the 2 pack super glue #19108 … I did one cord rosary & tried the glue in the cord crucifix and I couldn’t believe it.  It not only hardens/firms the cord/knot crucifix, but it was very clean & clear.  Since then I & the other knot/cord rosary makers are buying the 2 pack #19108 super glue.”

7.  J.C. states:  “I always buy your product and use it for the application of my artificial nails.  It comes out very easily.  I like the size of the bottle (easy to carry in my purse or pocket).  I would recommend it to my friends.”

8.  J.J. states:  “This may not sound like much but the passenger side door mirror on my grandmas car kept getting broken off from her backing out of the garage.  We had tried new complete mirrors, then epoxy, then wired it on which she couldn’t stand.  Then just to see if it would work I took the old mirror and used super glue to bond it back on to the door and after about 5-10 minutes I let go and it held.  The great part of this is after trying those other options and she kept hitting the garage door frame the super glue held and is still holding and has been hit four times that I know of that she has told us.  I am the only person doing these repairs so I am very happy with the outcome, and my grandmother needs the mirror on as she’s 87 years old.  Thank You I have told everyone.”

9.  S.C. states:  “When I graduated college in 1970, I was given a money clip with a sold silver coin-shaped ingot on it as decoration.  I have carried it since.  About 5 years ago the ingot came off of the clip, due to the rivet keeping the ingot bezel on the clip breaking after so long.  I used Super Glue to re-attach the ingot and have carried the clip since.”

10. J.S. writing about Vinyl/Leather Mender“When I have cuts in leather jackets and car seats or booths I use it to mend and then fill in with Pro 2, another product, and then I dye the leather.”

This is just a small sampling of the feedback … we’ll share more next time. We would love to hear from you!  Share your stories, about how you use Super Glue Corporation’s products and you may win some free product samples.
