Popsicle Stick Crossbow

Introduction: Popsicle Stick Crossbow

About: Hello! Welcome to my Instructables. My name is Audrey and I love Minecraft, Clash of Clans, Rubik's Cubes, Crafts, and other random stuff!

Hey guys, this is my first instructable so plz let me know if there is anything i should fix, or you have any suggestions, thx! This guy can shoot up to at least 15 feet! All you need are popsicle sticks, a hot glue gun, a clothespin, a pencil (ammo), and a rubber band

Step 1: The Body

The body is made up of many popsicle sticks hot glued together. I also carved a groove in the middle of the popsicle sticks to keep my pencil (ammo) from sliding off when firing

Step 2: The Trigger

The trigger is made of a clothespin that has been hot glued to the back end of the crossbow

Step 3: The Ammo

I use unsharpened pencils as my ammo, use what ever that will, when placed in the groove, go up to the middle of where the clothespin mouths meet.

Step 4: The Rubber Band

I used a rubber band for the string part of the cross bow. Just tie a loop and make it into a slip knot, put the slip knot around the arms of the crossbow

Step 5: Fire!

Pull the rubber band back and put it in the clothespin, then release the clothespin to fire the crossbow!

Step 6: Expirement!

I tryed making a mini one and it worked! This little guy can shoot up to at least 13 feet! I used twigs that i found outside for ammo
