use elastic bands to secure 2 bamboo skewers together - i cut the tips off the skewers because this is not the ammo or 'bolt'. after this step you will have two sticks of two bamboo skewers secured together.

Step 3: Secure it again

not to be rude or anything, but you call this easy????
yes. But it's not a crossbow. It's a slinshot with a similar shape to a crossbow. In a crossbow, you get power from the flex of the wood, not an elastic band.

sorry to burst your bubble but this is not a crossbow, it is a slingshot that has the same basic shape of a crossbow.
