I have absolutely no idea but I am deeply interested in what prompted you to ask.

Science fair project?

I’m not familiar with Elmers Glue-All. I’d be more inclined to use thread or something and kind of sew it on.

Use a small piece of broccoli and a lot of glue. :)

probably not.

Yes, Elmer’s glue will work fine. I suggest you dip the broccoli in wax first, or it will spoil. You could also coat it with clear fingernail polish. Good Luck with your project.

That sounds like quite an art project. Why don’t you just affix your produce with some pins or toothpics? Better yet, fish hooks and perhaps some twine.

Elmer’s is water-soluble, so make sure your broccoli is dehydrated or put a waterproof barrier like the wax that @YARNLADY suggested.

Elmer’s won’t stick to wax, begging wise YARNLADY’s pardon. Coat it with clear acrylic medium if you’re determined to use Elmer’s. But the thread idea is soooooo much better.

@susanc I guess it depends on what kind of wax you use. We glue beads and such on candles all the time.

@YARNLADY – what wax then? I always had the feeling (in my fingers) that
candlewax was a little oily. Would like to learn about this glue-able wax. @simone54,
are you reading this?

I making doing a eulogy to the Jolly Green Giant for my public speaking class. So I have a big picture with a wreath made of out broccoli.

The glue didn’t do much. I poke tooth picks through it for the to hold them on.
