Making Homemade Craft Sealer

Does anyone know of a way to make homemade sealer? I bought my can of sealer for a preschool craft, covering a jar with pastel tissue paper for a Mother's Day gift. I found that the nozzle had broken off and there was no sealant. Can I make a thin coat with diluted glue and water? Thank you.

This is from TipNut.com:
Homemade Decoupage Paste: Recipe

3 parts white household glue (like Elmer's or All-PurposeWhite)
1 part warm water
Jar with lid

Directions:

* Mix glue and water in the jar.
* When using the decoupage, brush a thin layer of the glue on the front and back of the pictures.
* For the final top coat, layer 3 to 4 coats of paste. Make sure to dry thoroughly between each application.
* For glossier finishes, use more coats of paste.

There will be a white film when paste is wet, but will show clear once it's dried.

This might be what you are looking for.

Yes you can make yourself some sealer with glue and water, I have done it. But your best bet is Mod Podge and it's not expensive at all.
