DIY Pocket Slingshot





Introduction: DIY Pocket Slingshot

If you need a very compact slingshot, then a pocket slingshot might come in handy.

Be careful though, as this guy will pack a punch, more than enough to penetrate glass!

(I) am not responsible for damages or injuries you have done.

Alright, let's begin!

Step 1: Gather the Tools

The only tools you will need are:

  • Scissors


  • Wood saw
  • Sandpaper
  • A file / rasp

Step 2: Make the Slingshot "frame"

A slingshot needs 3 or 4 things to wreck havoc:

- A frame

- A pouch

- The band

And lastly, the payload.

To make the frame, you have to "decapitate" a bottle.

You have to cut the neck of the bottle, then smoothen the sharp edges.

Step 3: Make the Pouch

A slingshot needs a pouch & a band, well here, the balloon will serve both as a pouch & the band.

To obtain a DIY pouch, cut the balloon about 1,5-2 inch of the neck.

Try to make a clean cut.

Step 4: Assembling the Slingshot

The time has come to assemble the slingshot.

  1. Remove the (black) band from the bottle head, but we want it, do not cut it!
  2. Put the balloon on the bottle head.
  3. Try to remove the wrinkles.
  4. Replace the band.
  5. Gently roll the excess balloon back to the head.

Step 5: Have Fun!

Now, if you made it, congrats! Now, let's go 'n wreck havoc! Just make sure you don't hurt someone.
