Introduction: How to Make a Mini Crossbow

How to make a mini crossbow. Great fun for target practice. Simple guide and easy to do.

Step 1: Watch This Video Guide

Full instructions for how to make this crossbow are given in this short and simple video guide.

What you need:

A plastic bottle top
2 lollipop / popsicle sticks
A strong elastic band
A cocktail stick, toothpick, skewer or cotton bud
A thin and medium size screwdriver

Step 2:

You now have a fun mini crossbow, ready for some target practice!

Try using a cardboard box as a target, or if you're using the fire arrows, only use them outside, somewhere safe where nothing can catch fire, and keep some water close by just in case. Make sure you don't hold the fire arrow in the crossbow for too long so you don't set the stick or bottle top on fire.

    does the flame stay lit during flight?

    Yes, if you follow the instructions in the Mini Bow one.

    nope. but in some rare case

    I have 3 mini weapons of mass destruction books and this is in one of them, plus I can make a lot more so if you want me to start posting instructions on them say "instruct"

    Go to this link, It shows the step to step instructions:

    vere easy and pretty cool ;)

    You could add a strike pad to this and the match will ignite upon release, this will guarantee it stays lit during flight

    works great, hot glue makes it hold great

    good but can u write instruction to make it instead of video...please
