I get the glue gun hot again and rub the metal side against it to made it "gooey" again and try to pull it off while it's stringy. HTH

Usually I make a bigger mess when I do that with the gun.
I take a lighter and run it over the glue really quick and it gets rid of it.

I've used a hair dryer and then scraped it off.

If it's a small amount try freezing it, then using some tweezers to pull it off.

Freezing is a really good idea! I usually run a lighter over it, and use tweezers if I need to, but I'll have to try the freezer thing!

Depending on where it is, I sometimes use a hair dryer other times a tweezer. Also rubbing alcohol dissolves it a lot too.
