  • Using the hot glue gun, glue a row of glass beads to the top, all the way around. They stick in an unbelievably short time, so take your time because if you make a mistake, they are nearly impossible to remove). Placing them in rows will ensure that you have enough room since the stones may not be all the exact same size.
