    • Make your Own Glue

      Making glue is as simple as boiling water. Mix this recipe up ahead of time to have a strong glue on hand that works wonderfully in any arts and crafts project.
      Glue is relatively simple to make at home and stores well in any tightly covered container, such as a mason jar.

      Combine the following in a small saucepan & bring to a rolling boil:

      3/4 cup water
      2 tablespoons corn syrup
      1 teaspoons white vinegar

      Blend the following in a small bowl:

      1/2 cup cornstarch
      3/4 cup cold water

      Add the cornstarch mix slowly to first mix. Stir constantly. Remove from heat, Cool, transfer to Covered Container and it Let stand overnight before using to cure.

        I think my nieces and nephews will like this idea -- they go thru a lot of glue with all their crafts. I posted this to Facebook for them. Thanks for this inexpensive idea!
