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!
Did you know with just 2 ingredients you already have at home you can make your own glue?
This glue will work for all types of craft projects! Pretty cool right? You can use any container for storage but mine are like these.
Let me show you how…
Watch my short video on how easy it is to make flour and water glue:
Easy Homemade Glue
- ½ Cup Flour
- 1/3 Cup Warm Water
How to make Glue:
1. Grab a medium sized mixing bowl and pour in your flour.
2. Now pour in your warm water and start stirring to combine the ingredients together. Stir until your mixture is nice and smooth.
3. Store in an airtight container. I already had mine in my house, but our storage container is a lot like these on amazon.
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!
