Have you ever wondered how to make glue? You can make your own homemade glue – even specialty crafting glues.
Why would you want to do that? It’s not as if it’s always much of a money-saver.
But it’s fun, interesting and educational. Many of these glue recipes are safe for kids to help with. And you can make exactly the glue you like in exactly the amounts you need.
Why make your own glue?
You may be wondering why you’d want to do this. It’s true that store-bought glue is mostly cheap and effective, though some specialty glues are expensive and hard to find.
One reason is that it’s fun. Making glue is a craft in and of itself, and if you’re crafty, that’s something you’ll enjoy.
Another reason is that you can in some cases make a better glue for your purposes. This is especially true if you’re doing an arts or crafts project with particular needs.
And you won’t have to worry about store-bought glue drying out before you can use it up, so you end up buying more. When you make it yourself, you’ll rarely have any glue going to waste.
Besides, learning how to make glue for yourself is a form of crafting. It’s fun, interesting and educational (many of these glue recipes are safe for kids to help with).
