Picture of cheap, affordable and fun... MARSHMALLOW GUN!!!!
This is a cheap and easy project that is sure to be a hit in your home! It is PVC pipes and fitting with a little flair from spraypaint. I personally think the spraypaint makes the whole project. This is a great father son, or hero dad project!

1/2" PVC piping cut to these lengths:
4- 3"
1- 4"
1- 5"
1-12"


These are the lengths to cut your PVC to. A hack saw will do but other types can be used. *Make sure that once u have finished cutting you get rid of the little bits of PVC left over and brush them away and blow through the tubes. These shavings can be harmful if inhaled*.

Step 3: Assembly!

Find a well ventilated place to hang your gun! I used a tree branch and went to town!

Step 5: Spray Paint it!

Now it's time to hose that sucker. Make sure to get it all and let it dry for the time written on your can. Don't be shy with the paint or some of the bad looking writing or labels may show in your final product and who wants that right?

Step 6: Optional: Personal Touch

Camo? I used a second color lightly and spotty to give it a camo jungle feeling. This does take a little know how but it is managable by almost anyone. Again this is optional but since I had the paint around i decided to do it.
