DIY vinyl glue with only 3 ingredients. Ready in just a few minutes!

Ingredients and materials:

To make vinyl glue you will need:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar (you can substitute it with apple cider vinegar)
  • Half a cup of cornstarch (alternatively you can use potato starch).

You will also need:

  • 1 small saucepan
  • 1 hand whisk
  • 1 glass jar with a lid
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 piece of paper towels
  • 1 self-adhesive label

 Creating the batter

First, let’s prepare a saucepan with a tablespoon of water and a tablespoon of vinegar. In a bowl, we put the cornstarch and pour in the rest of the water a little at a time. With a hand whisk, we mix the ingredients well until we create a thick, lump-free batter. Let’s be very careful before continuing; the starch should be completely dissolved.

Heating the batter

Let’s take the saucepan with the water and vinegar back to the stove. The two liquids should not boil but only get warm. Slowly add the batter we just created with the cornstarch, never stopping stirring, until the mixture has thickened completely. Turn off the stove and wait for it to get cold.

Finish the creation

With the help of a spoon, we transfer the vinyl glue into the glass jar, using a piece of paper towel, carefully wipe the rim and any drippings on the container. We close the jar with the lid and add the adhesive label stating the date it was made. Now all that remains is to put the vinyl glue in the refrigerator. We will be able to store the glue for about a week. When we need to use it, just dilute it with a little warm water, or melt it a few seconds on the stove, adding a little water.

Your vinyl glue is ready to be used for your creations.
