How do I make white glue?

If you are thinking of PVC glue, like the white carpenter's glue, forget it. It would cost you twenty times as much to make it, than to buy it at Home Depot.

If you just want a cheap household glue for fun and crafts, that don't have to go out into the weather for many years, then simply mix a bit of flour and water to a thick and smooth paste. For rigid, porous organics like wood, paper, cloth, etc. that makes a very strong and lasting glue.

You can make just a spoon full whenever you need some craft glue.

Keep in mind that home-made white glue is NOT weather-proof!

Have FUN!

If you break a ceramic and don't have cement type glue, you can use the white of an egg for glue. Crack the egg and dip a toothpick or maybe a Q-tip in the white thats left on the shell. It works the same as glue.

If its paper you're wanting to glue, use a paste made from flour and water. You'll get a white glue similar to the white glue that comes in a squeeze bottle.

For paper glue i have always used egg white when I have run out of PVA glue. An art project I helped my niece do for school recently was to make a picture of a face from cut out pieces of a magazine - she had no glue so we cracked open an egg and used the white. It's a perfect paper glue.
