Easy Marshmallow Shooter

Introduction: Easy Marshmallow Shooter

Here are instructions to make a simple marshmallow shooter that anyone can make with simple tools and PVC pipe.

Step 1: Materials


1 Long section of 1/2" diameter PVC pipe.
2 T connecters
1 Pipe cutter
1 Nickel
1 Bag of mini marshmallows

Use a pipecutter to cut the PVC.  Mouseover the parts below to see approximate lengths of each pipe.

Step 2: Place Nickel in T Connector

Place the nickel inside the bottom hole of one of the T connectors.  This part will be where you place the handle of the gun and seals the barrels of the shooter.

Step 3: Add the Handle to the T

Insert the 4" PVC pipe to the bottom of the T connector where you placed the nickel.

Step 4: Adding the Mid Section of the Barrel

Next, insert the 4" PCV pipe into the T connector.  This is the middle part of the shooter barrel.

Step 5: Adding the Mouth Piece

Then, insert the 2" PCV pipe (mouth piece) to the open end to the T connector.

Step 6: Adding the Second T Connector

Place the second T connector on the end of the mid barrel section.  The T connector should have the middle hole facing up and tilted slightly to the left or right side depending on which hand you prefer to use when loading marshmallows.

Step 7: Add Ammo Clip

Insert a 4.5" section into the top of the T connector you just added.  This is where you will load the marshmallows.

Step 8: Add the Rest of the Barrel

Add the last section of PVC pipe onto the T connector.  The shooter is now complete and ready for marshmallow action.

Step 9: Loading the Shooter

Insert mini marshmallows into the ammo clip.

Step 10: Fire When Ready!

You are now ready for the marshmallow amageddon.
