Homemade Glue Recipe

Homemade Glue Recipe
During their childhood, kids use a large amount of glue. Most of them are chemical mixtures with no ingredients listed on the packaging. You can only imagine what’s in there. Preschoolers love pasting and collage, as well as tasting anything that comes close to their mouths. Besides the awful taste, shop bought glue might not be the perfect substance for their tummies. School kids have (hopefully) learned not to lick the glue, but having it on their skin and, occasionally, all over them, isn’t good either as we know that our skin absorbs anything that’s put on it. Whether you would like to avoid a chance of your kids digesting chemical glues, make your house greener and as chemical free as possible or just want to avoid buying stuff and reducing wasteful packaging, the recipe above is a sure winner. How to make non toxic homemade glue This glue will keep for a few days. Vinegar in this glue recipe acts as a mild natural preservative. P.S. Similar Posts: Related:  DIY

8 great ways to incorporate a flat screen television into a room. Without a doubt, without any bit of hesitation or yammering I can tell you that the most difficult decision I’ve had to make during this entire kitchen renovation is … where to put the stupid television. I still hate where I put my television in the living room 2 years ago, so I can’t totally be trusted with this sort of thing. I can’t decide if I want a big television, or a smaller one, should it be hidden, shown off, on the counter, on a wall? I thought I had it all figured out. 3 times. 3 times I thought I knew exactly where the television should go and then some niggly little thought wormed its way into my brain and I reconsidered my decision. I used hunks of cardboard and put them throughout the kitchen to see how I thought I liked them. You’d think that once televisions became ultra slim, flat, and only 3″ deep they’d be easier to deal with. So I finally took to the Internet to see if I could come up with anything there. Like this … See the full DIY here. from Restoration Hardware

How to print pictures on wood. Wax Paper transfer. I’m funny. Sometimes ha-ha funny, sometimes left-out-of-the-fridge-too-long funny. But as we all know, there are times for funny and times for seriousness. This is one such time. For seriousness that is. So this post will involve no funny. Because the information I’m about to introduce you to deserves a reverence that can’t be accomplished when diluted with hilarious jokes or cutting sarcasm. I’m going to teach you how to transfer any photograph or picture onto wood. You don’t know it yet, but this is the greatest day of your life. A couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to try making something but it involved transferring a photo onto wood so I did a little research. So I kept looking for a cheaper (don’t have to buy anything) and simpler solution. It was the perfect solution and it works GREAT. All you need is a printer, a roll of waxed paper and a dream. That’s right. Cut a few sheets of wax paper to the size of a standard piece of printer paper. Stop putting them off! You’ll be stunned.

Paper-Back Planters: Recycling Books to Pot Indoor Plants Have books finally met their match with the Apple iPad, or is it just another fad like the Amazon Kindle? Readers may find some poetry in these volumes regardless of whether they are willing to give up their favorite paperback companions: potted plants put into scooped-out sections of beautiful old hardback books. Gardenkultur (via Inhabitat) makes a simple recycling project out of even the most complex novels, but carving into the heart of a book, sealing off the resulting space and putting seeds of little trees or other plant life into the curved void. But if a picture is said to be worth one thousand, at how many words do we value a wee plant? Hopefully these books were beyond repair and those ripe only for reuse.

Make Do: 3 Modular Pieces for Making Endless DIY Projects One of the problems with a kit-of-parts approach is that you need, well, the kit … of parts. But what if you started from another angle and treated everyday scraps as raw materials? Then you might arrive at this ingenious idea: create the connectors and let the world around provide the rest of your material palette. MakeDo is a neat product that enables the do-it-yourself process with a set of items to help parse apart and reassemble everything from cardboard to plastic and fabric. Though it clearly has child-friendly appeal, calling it a kid’s toy would not do justice to this clever system – these would be equally fun to set loose in an otherwise boring lobby, waiting room or creative corporate office. The three basic modular elements are a connector, a hinge and construction tool. Bubble wrap, cardboard tubes, coffee cups, egg cartons, shipping boxes and other everyday objects suddenly take on a new set of possibilities – from playful to profound.
