Whenever I use hot glue gun, there is a high chance of me getting burned at lease once or twice >.< so I finally made a little hot glue protection helper (in 2 different styles!) ^^ I hope this will be helpful for you too if not I hope you enjoy this video 😀

Written Tutorial

Style 1 – Ring Finger Cap (You are on this post!)

Style 2 – Hair Tie Cap


  • A piece of fabric
  • A piece of felt
  • A ring
    • A ring that will fit on your finger that you use most often to press down the material when working with hot glue
  • Hot glue gun
  • A pair of scissors


  1. Cut out a piece of fabric with the following measurement
    1. The width should be able to wrap around your ring + 0.5 inch of extra area for hot glue purpose
    2. The length should be your finger length + 1.5 to 2 inches for folding in
  2. Hot glue the ring onto one edge of the fabric
  3. Put the piece onto your finger to figure out the fold area (the tip of your finger is where the fold area is)
  4. Fold the piece of felt and hot glue that into that fold area
  5. Fold the puffy area onto the fabric
