Horse shoe question

jayokieDecember 10, 2013

How do I attach wooden letters to horse shoes? Saw a pix of a wall hanging, but I'm not inclined to pay the price. Especially when I have horse shoes from my dad's 4 legged critters. I'd like to use them to make "momentos" for my kids.

Would gorilla glue work (have never used it) or do I need something else altogether? Would have the h'shoes welded together, paint black or silver, then attach the wooden letters.

Any suggestions greatly appreciate. TIA !!

I really have never done that before but how do you think a hot glue gun would work?

Hot glue just might do it. After reading your reply, I thought of a wall hanging I did with horseshoes (roses). Will have to check, but I just MAY have used hot glue on that one. mmmmm. Worth a look-at & a try. Thanks for the tip! If anyone knows if it won't work, or something that would work better, pls let me know. Appreciate it!!

I would try the liquid nails stuff.

Thanks, Pinch_me, for the tip. I did use hot glue on the wall hanging with roses. But! it might not be "heavy" enough for the wooden letters. Will look for the liquid nails. Appreciate the tip.

Hot glue would be OK indoors but outside the sun "melts" it & they would fall off. Craft stores should have Quick Grip or 527 multi-use glue. They can be used on metals & wood. Both have to be used in well ventilated area so be careful & keep away from kids!
