How to Make a Pvc Blow Gun and a Pvc Marshmallow Shooter

About: I am thirteen years old, have three siblings, and love building things.

I will be showing you how to make a blow gun that shoots paper darts and a semi automatic magazine fed marshmallow shooter.

Step 1: What You’ll Need for the First Blowgun

1. A pair of pipe cutters
2. A two foot length of pvc pipe
3.1/2 x 3/4 reducing female adapter
4. Some black spray paint

Step 2: Assembling the Body

You’ll need to use a mallet and hammer on the reducing adapter on to one side of the pipe. This will be the mouth piece.

Step 3: Painting the Blowgun

Next you’re going to want to spray paint you’re blowgun with the paint if you’re choice. I used a matte black color.

Step 4: Making the Ammunition

For this step you will need a party hat, post-it notes, tape, and a glue gun.

Step 5: Having Fun!

Now that you’re done with you’re blow gun test it out and see how you like it. If you want, play around with the amount of hot glue or the width of the dart to see how it effects the overall performance.

Step 6: What You’ll Need for the Marshmallow Shooter

You’ll need a pipe cutter, a 1/2 pvc cap, a 1/2 tee connector with no threads, a two foot length of 1/2 pvc pipe and a 1/2 x 3/4 female adapter.

Step 7: Assembling the Shooter

You will need to cut the pipe fifeteen inches in and then put the tee connector in the middle, then you will cut a six inch length of pipe from the original and put that on the tee connector, finally you will put on the adapter. When you are done doing all of this load the magazine with mini marshmallows and put the cap on.

Step 8: Having More Fun

Test out you’re marshmallow shooter and have fun!
