Default Google Eyes

Can you tell me what is the best glue to use to attach these google eyes?

I have been using tacky craft glue and they come off after some use.

Are you using a high temp glue gun with high temp glue sticks? That makes a big difference, low temp glue sticks and guns won't adhere as well. Also, you have to make sure you're moving quickly so the glue doesn't start to cool off before you adhere the eyes. Hope that helps!

Make sure your glue gun is heated up well. If used before it is hot enough the glue dries almost instantly. I always use hot glue and have difficulty when trying to take off.

Yes, I always use hot glue also. Like the other ladies have said, make sure it's high tepm glue and gun, and that it is warmed up all the way.

i've been reading to see cause i had the same problem . . . cause my "hot" glue didn't work . . . put it only on the google eye to test and was able to pull it off.

then i realized the switch on my duel temp glue gun was set at low - oops!
