If you need to use hot glue for crafts then cut chunks of glue sticks into an old pan and warm on the stove, then dunk things that need to be glued into the glue. Use the pan over and over after glue cools and just reheat. You could also use a mini crock pot. Just be careful not to get burned.
I have an old potpourri mini pot that you would put water in, some potpourri and let simmer all day. I wonder whether that would get hot enough to melt the glue? Sometimes I see glue sticks at garage sales that are a different size than the glue gun I have at home.
