Recipe for homemade glue

Homemade glueI‘d been meaning to try out this recipe for ages and last week we finally got round to it. Paper mache balloons were the order of the day and they turned out really well! Anyway…it’s dead easy, cheap and it works!


♥ Flour
♥ Sugar
♥ Water
♥ White vinegar

Combine flour and sugar in a saucepan (3:1 ratio). Add cold water to make a paste and beat out any lumps. Then stir constantly over a medium heat until the mixture thickens. Add one teaspoon of vinegar. Allow to cool before using. Store in an air-tight container. This glue will keep in a fridge for a couple of weeks or so.

Disclaimer: This recipe has been pinned on Pinterest over 14,000 times and is being described as home-made ‘mod podge’. The description is very misleading (but nothing I have any control over). The glue recipe is great, perfect for papier mache, collage and the like. It’s brilliant for little kids. It takes longer to dry than regular glue/paste. It’s not mod podge though and probably doesn’t compare to any commercial product! It is however, very cheap and completely natural!
