Step 1: Things You Need:
- 1,5 l plastic bottle
- flexible cup ( optional)
- 2 wheels from an old toy car
- bamboo stick
- some Bluetack or Sugru
- pocket knife or scissors
- to power the cannon: bike pump/air compressor/vacuum cleaner with blow mode
Step 2: Cut the Bottle
First thing you gonna do is cut the bottle in to two pieces like shown ( you can remove the label if you want). The bigger piece with the cap will be the body of the cannon.
Step 3: Making the Wheels
Put some putty in to the holes of each wheel, this will make it stronger. Than push the bamboo stick in wheels, you should end up whit a nice little "weight".
Step 4: The Finish Product
Lets join the wheels and the body together with some putty. Unscrew the cap join a blowing device to the cannon, put some confetti or pieces of newspaper in it and SHOOT.
