Use styrofoam adhesive to hold your project together.

Craft projects that use Styrofoam shapes can be tricky to assemble. Using the right glue can help you put your project together and get it to stay together. While white glue is a viable option, using special Styrofoam glue will keep your project stable and help it last longer.


Step 1

Decide where you need to glue your project. Styrofoam adhesive is a sturdy adhesive. It will be difficult to pull the pieces apart if you put the glue in the wrong place.

Step 2

Place the glue on one piece of Styrofoam. Place the second piece of Styrofoam or other material on the glue.

Step 3

Hot glue can melt Styrofoam, so avoid using a hot glue gun.
