Intro: LARP Dart Blowgun
Hey guys! So, I am really into LARPing and foam/duct tape weapons. I made this blowgun one day, and then I saw the Stick It! Contest. Link: /https://www.instructables.com/contest/stickit/ So I thought and thought and thought of something I could do to impress the judges. Then I realized: This could be a pretty cool instructable to make! So here it is! And please vote for me! And feel free to follow me also! Thanks guys.
Step 1: Materials
Here is the list of materials you will need to complete this fantastical instructable:
- Duct Tape (colors are optional)
- Hand Saw (or any other tool to cut PVC)
- Post-It Notes
- PVC Piping (1/2 inch)
- Foam Sheet
- Chopstick (or multiple, depending on how many darts you want to make)
- Tape Measure
Step 2: Measure & Cut the PVC
Measure the PVC 22 1/2 inches.Mark with your Sharpie. Cut with the saw. Make sure the end is smooth.
Step 3: Tape the PVC
Now tape the PVC however you want. I made two different designs. One has more of a forest-y kind of look, the other is kind of future-ish. If some of the tape goes over the edge of the pipe, cut it off.
Step 4: Start the Dart (Hey That Rhymed)
Take a sticky note and make a cone out of it (see image). Make sure the hole is about the same size of the chopstick. Now put the cone at the end of the chopstick. Tape it on at the bottom to secure it. Your dart should now be about 10 inches long.
Step 5: Tape Your Dart (Darn, That Didn't Rhyme)
If the cone is too big to fit, pinch it a bit to make it smaller. Now, Tape the rest of it and make sure you can put it in the blowgun.
Step 6: Make the Tip
We don't want anybody's eyes getting poked out, so we are going to add a foam tip to the end of the dart. Cut the foam as shown in the pictures. Now tape it on the front of the dart like so. Make sure it's secure so it doesn't fall off.
Step 7: The Dart Is Done!
I made two different darts to go with my different blowguns. You'll notice one of the darts has a thing at the top. This acts as and extra little pocket of air to make the dart more powerful. Remember, this part is optional.
Step 8: FINISHED!
