Filling Holes in Old Screens

I learned this tip or hint out of desperation. We live in an old house and it has old screens that have developed holes. I tried cotton balls and duct tape but they didn't stay on for long. This year when I put the screens in I grabbed my hot glue gun and filled the holes. Well summer's over and it's still holding!

My mother used to "sew" the holes in our screens. She would weave thread back and forth without cinching it tight and the thread covers the holes.

Thank you so much for this idea. I am struggling with a "holey" screen porch.
