Step 1: Materials

1. A length of PVC
2. Duct tape
3. Paper
4. Paracord (optional)
5. 2 rubber bands (optional)
6. Scissors

Step 2: Dart Pockets

Take a piece of paper and fold it. Then fold it again and you should have a hollow "tube" of sorts. It should be just a little bigger than a nail like in the picture. Now cut it so it is just longer than the nail. And now you can tape it to the pvc. Do this until you have pockets all the way around.

Step 3: Optional Paracord Handle

To be honest it does not look too good with just the duct tape so let's make a paracord handle wrap. Take a section of paracord that is about twice as long as the section of the pvc that you want to cover. Make a loop that goes in a horizontal direction along the pvc. And secure it with the two rubber bands. Now take the longer section of the paracord and slowly wrap the pvc tightly. When you get to the first rubber band just roll it down the pvc out of the way. Once you have the entire handle wrapped pull the longer string through the loop that was made. Go to the other side and pull the loose strand of cord to pull the loop out of sight. Now cut the excess away and seal it with a lighter. Now you are done !

Step 4: Done

Congratulations you have made your own blowgun! I realize that is not the prettiest but I like it. And I hope you do too! Thank you for viewing this Instructable. Good luck and enjoy !
