Homemade Glitter Slime Tutorial

Homemade Glitter Slime

Here’s a super easy way to make homemade glitter slime, with only two ingredients and no measuring needed!

Homemade Glitter Slime


  • Glitter Glue
  • Liquid Starch
  • Bowl
  • Mixing spoon

Start by pouring your glue straight into the bowl. I used half a bottle, which makes a good amount of slime for one kid. Use as much glue as you need for the amount of kids you’re making this for. Pour in a small amount of the liquid starch. I started with roughly a quarter cup.

Start mixing! The glue will start to absorb the starch, and form a ball. It should still be very sticky at this point. Add in a teaspoon of starch at a time, and start mixing it with your hands. Keep adding and kneading the slime. You’ll be able to feel when it just stops being sticky, and thats where you stop adding starch.

If you add too much starch, it will turn clumpy and not squish back together. You can add more glue to help fix this if it happens, but it’s always better to be careful not to add too much starch.

I tried multiple “recipes” with specific amounts when I started making slime, and they never turned out right. It works so much better to slowly add the starch and just work with the slime until it feels right!

Your homemade glitter slime should be smooth, squishy, and not sticky. I love that no glitter comes off on your hands either!

Did I mention this stuff can stretch??!! It’s super extra stretchy. And if you roll it into a ball, it can bounce a little too!

I like to keep my slime in snack sized bags, but any closed contained should work well! I keep mine until it’s starting to look a bit rough, or has collected too much ick from being played with, and then I make a new batch!

You can also use regular glue or clear glue to make slime with this same method. I hope you enjoy making your own slime!!
