Step 1: Step #1: Making Shoe Lace Chain

  1. Get the one of the three shoe laces and find the middle of the lace
  2. Uncap the water bottles and grab the pencil
  3. Use the pencil to poke the middle of the lace through the cap
  4. Once the lace is through you tie the middle into a knot
  5. From there you take the two separate laces and braid them like you would with para-cord
  6. Keep on of the laces straight and with the other you make a "P" by curving it over the other
  7. Insert the straight lace over and into the whole of the "P"
  8. Pull both laces firmly to complete the knot
  9. Repeat with the laces in a Backwards "P"
  10. Switch back and forth with the laces and leave 1-2 inches at the end
  11. When done take the next pair of shoe laces and find the middle
  12. Tie the First lace around the middle of the Second lace with the 1-2 inches of lace at the end
  13. Repeat braid for Second lace
  14. Repeat all instructions for the Second lace for Third
  15. Use the 1-2 inches of the two separate laces on the third and poke it through the second bottle cap
  16. Knot the ends that were just inserted
  17. LOOK AT WHAT YOU ACCOMPLISHED #FerociousDonuts

Step 2: Step #2: Filling, Attaching, and Rip Proofing the Bottles

  1. Take both of the Bottles and fill each up with your choice of material NOTE: Leave some room at the top
  2. Glue the caps bottom and screw it back onto the bottles
  3. IF YOU DON'T HAVE GLUE OR CHOOSE NOT TO, FILL BOTTLES HALF WAY (NOT FULL)

YOU CAN NOW FEEL HAPPY ABOUT YOURSELF AND GET READY TO THROW IT #FerociousDonuts

Step 3: Step #3: How to Throw the Makeshift Bola

  1. You hold the lace chain by one of the two knots and swing it over your head
  2. Let go at the right time to hit your target or moving target

Now that I'm done talking, go have some fun with your very own Makeshift Bola!!
