What kind of glue would I use?

I'm going to do a picture frame for my husband for his birthday, and I was going to put outdoorsy stuff on it like sticks and fishing stuff. But I don't know what kind of glue to use. I don't have a way to get to the store right now, so I'm hoping anything suggested I already have!!

  • You could use a hot glue gun, gorilla glue or even just plain old white glue..it depend on how much time you have and how long you need it to set up in.

  • Super glue doesn't work well on porous objects like wood.

  • In my daughters girl scout troop we use Hot Glue Sticks when we made something on these lines.
    You can get glue guns and glue sticks at the dollar store. They are not the best but they work in a pinch and they are not expensive.
