    Trying to adhere some dried flowers to a piece of glass. Does anyone have any ideas on what adhesive to use?

    I think people usually use hot glue gun.

    Thanks for your suggestion but it only holds for a wee bit and then pops off - plus it's a pain to use and messy with me at the user end.

    Thanks... you may be on to something. But I'll have to have someone else do it for me - it's too toxic for me (years ago used it for crafts - remember those fabric covered video cases - and kept getting sick).

    Hmmm. Have you tried like a rubber cement or is that bad too?
    you could check the hardware department for some glue that will hold onto glass. most craft glues are not good with non porous materials. That is the problem with the hot glue and glass there is really nothing there for the glue to hold on to!

    Try Mod Podge. If that won't glue it nothing will.

    silicone rubber. You can purchase at a hardware store. Comes in a big tube (such as a caulking tube) or a smaller tube (not unlike a large tube of toothpaste) Comes in clear, too!

    a 2 part epoxy should work, also. But you may want someone else to do it for you if you have allergies.
