Trying to finish my Styrofoam with paper covered xmas trees but I want to use tiny beads on string got them in the sewing ribbon area in Michaels DO NOT WANT TO USE HOT GLUE, e6000 has been suggested but I never used this and do not want to have to do anything special like dampen it like Gorilla glue. Any more suggestions... Thanks 1-10-19

    If you're not sure what glue to use then, try this website

    There is a spray E-6000 that has worked well for me on numerous craft projects. It isn't an aerosol so it's easy to spray exactly where you need it. Sounds like it would be a good glue to use on your project. You have a bit of time between spraying it on and getting the two objects to adhere to each other and it dries clear.

    Try Beacon 3 in 1. E6000 is probably overkill for what you've described.

    Hello-I think E6000 would be a great choice. Its at walmart and craft stores-

    Ive used it for multiple repairs and craft projects to include to flatten glass marbles and faceted glass plates on woodn glass windows to make decorative hangings.

    A second choice might be Tacky Glue

    Please have a look at BOTH product information to see if it might meet your needs.

    I do not personally recommend Gorilla Glue but I find it messy with its expanding foaming property and an awful situation if you get it on your skin/ hands. I hope this helps.

      Hey I forgot all about tacky glue as a matter of fact I think I might have some somewhere in my craft stuff...hopefully it adheres very well to the paper that I want to put the beads on, thank you so much...
