I think the iron will get hot enough to melt the glue on the crystals. But my concern is it may damage your threads or fabric. Some crystals take some time to get the glue melted. That is the purpose of the heat tool. The small 2mm and 3mm crystals would be easy with the iron but your larger stones 4mm and up may pose a bit of a problem. Also you will get problems with movement of the crystals while placing them.
Some crystals in the 4mm size have taken as long as 15 seconds for the glue to melt. imo you would be better off to purchase the heat gun. Personally I would get the plug in one so that I wouldn't have to worry about batteries.
