Step 1: Fiberglass Reinforcement
With Your 3 fiberglass rods, take one cut it in half then line the other two up together. now put the two halves together like so and line them up at the midpoint and tape them all together like so once you have taped them all together shove them in the pvc, they should fit perfectly inside
Step 2: String Notches
Use a rat tail file to carve notches for the paracord about one inch from the end of the pvc then frown the notches like so, so the cord fits nicely
Step 3: Handle
Wrap your bows handle one inch from the midpoint with paracord. Then mine looked like booty cheeks so I just duct taped over it to make it look better.
Step 4: Paint the Bow
Just Spray paint the bow
Step 5: String the Bow
Tie a loop in the paracord so and line it up with the notch then tie another loop four inches from the notch and string the bow
