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.

Thanks for cliking on my first insructables.
