How to Make Glue 

I do a lot of craft projects and kid’s projects in the house. From our homemade mod podge, to our glitter slime, and our homemade play dough, we have a lot of fun around here.

However we don’t always have enough glue on hand for some of our craft projects. When we are elbow deep in a project with some sweet kiddos, it is such a hassle to run out to the store just to grab a bottle of glue so I ventured out to learn how to make glue!

Plus, buying glue at the store all the time really adds up. If you do as much crafting as we do, it does not take long for it all to add up.

You will love how much money you save and how easy it is. It is not hard at all and only takes a few minutes to make.

4. When ready to use just dip your paintbrush into the glue and use it on paper, woods, metals and anything else. Be sure to store your left overs in the fridge until next use.

You will love this homemade glue!

The kids just love this fun project. Even if you have glue laying around the house – try making your own with the kids.

They will love it and their next craft project will be much more special since they even made the glue! My kids were amazed that you could make glue at home.

We had so much fun making this together that we plan to make all our glue at home now. We had a blast!

Now that the kids know they can make glue at home, they ask all the time to make homemade glue. It is so cheap and easy that I do not mind at all.

Let the DIY projects begin. We are all about simple and it does not get any easier than 2 ingredients!

What projects can I use homemade glue for?

Now that you know how to make glue at home, it is so easy! 

Get started with this diy with home ingredients for easy homemade glue.  Just remember to use warm water (not cold water) and stir constantly.

The water temperature is important as you also do not want to use boiling water.  You are going to love how easy these home ingredients very cheap are to use.

If you have heard of paper mache glue, it is similar. Mod podge or german white ingredients very cheap duration but work well.

Use a small bowl to stir really well. If the glue has a thick and lump consistency, try adding baking soda. If it is too thick, try adding corn syrup.

Once you make homemade glue, you will learn just the right texture and consistency that you like. It is not hard at all and it takes hardly any time at all!

    1. Laura – This jar holds approximately 8 oz (250 ml). I got this jar at a Hobby Lobby (a local craft store) as they were on clearance. Definitely check at Dollar tree though – I bet they have some great options too!

  1. If you wanted to have the glue in a bottle like the stores, the dollar stores sell condiment squeeze bottles, usually in a two pack.

  2. In México we calle it “engrudo” and is used in making piñatas and other paper toys 🐥

  3. I read in another recipe that you boil it on the stove until clear and add sugar to it. Then use right away (nothing about storing it for later). I will try that recipe and yours, I hate store bought glue. It reeks and gets everywhere and will not come off of or out of certain things. And kids are always sticking their hands in their mouths so an edible glue (or one that is not chemically made) should be better for them.

  4. If you any cooked rice left over , then simply add water and whisk it to smooth paste ……… bingo instant glue….
