      Here is a wonderfully easy recipe for homemade glue that is very similar to your favorite school glue.

      1 quart skim milk
      3/4 tablespoon baking soda
      1 tablespoon white vinegar
      10 ounces water

      Place milk and vinegar in a double boiler. Cook on low heat and stir as curds form. Drain off liquid. Wash remaining mass with water until the vinegar smell is gone. Put into a clean bowl. Dissolve baking soda in water. Pour over curds and stir until a white paste forms. Seal in suitable containers.

        I'm so happy to find this recipe for glue! I can't believe the amount of white glue I go through. This will be a great savings and it will also save me from last minute runs to the store because I've run out of glue AGAIN! Thanks so much!

      Yes, you just want the snowflake to stick the window so you can blot all around it.

      Very neat idea, but I am a little confused. Are we dipping our snowflakes in plain water? Once they are on the window is it plain water we spray on it?
