  - 1/4" socket 
  -cheap pen
  -earbud piece 
  -hot glue
  -gold and bronze spray paint

Step 1: The Shell

    To begin take the earbud piece (pic 1) and fold the part that goes in your ear outwards. (pic 2) Once you have done this stick the part that is blue in the pic in to the back of the 1/4" socket.(pic 3) Now fold the flap sticking out over the back of the socket.(pic 4)
    Now that you've done all this take this little guy outside and spray paint it gold.

Step 2: The Projectile

   Now to the projectile.Take out your cheap pen.(pic 1) Now what idid was i just used my teeth to pull out the end of the pen.(pic 2)
    Take the tip of the pen and sand down the bottom a bit.(pic 3) Sray paint the tip of the pin bronze and your ready to put the bullet together.

Step 3: Assembly

Now simply put it together.Use some hot glue to keep the projectile in place and your done!

Step 4: Tips

-Use something different than an earbud
-Make it smaller using something other than a socket

   I hope you enjoy this and have fun!
