Bic Pen Crossbow





Introduction: Bic Pen Crossbow

Just a simple crossbow- quick and easy to make. 5-10 min is all you need.

Warning-this can hurt someone.

Note- the colors in the step by step will be different because I am making a new one. this one was my first one.

Step 1: Materials-

Materials you will need to make this crossbow-

1. any long thin peice that is about 6 inches long.

2. Bic pen (taken apart)
  • Outer tube
  • Grip area

3. Tiny binder clip.

4. Some rubber bands (or one and a glue gun)

5. Scissors for cutting/poking holes.

Step 2: The Bow Part.

Okay take the bic pen part and cut slits on both ends and make a hole big enough in the middle for the grip of the bic pen to fit through. Then put the rubber band in those slits on either side.

End result will look like this-

Step 3: Six Inch Shaft

Very easy to find, if something is bigger, than you could cut it to make it the right size or let out more rubber band for a more longer stretch.

I made mine out of sum legos. i will include a picture of mine.

Step 4: Glue the Shaft to the Bow

Okay now use the glue gun to glue the shaft to the bow.

-End result will look like this-

Step 5: Adding the Clip

Finally, take the mini binder clip and put hot glue on one side and press down. Then, keep adding glue until firm enough.

dude this is just a repeat ove what ive already seen not coo man not coo


i find all these build hurtful stuff out of school suplies but i find that punching someone works better than shooting a toothpick at them with a rubber band.

Bamboo skewers are the best thing that ever happened to me

i agree man..the only diff thing is the lego and clip..but those are from other instructables too..

u r just reposting other ppls instructables!!!
