Intro: Bow and Arrow
1/2 inch PVC pipe
1/4 inch Dowel
Hot Glue Gun
Duct Tape ( for looks and grip... your choice )
Step 1: Step 1
You will want to cut 39 1/2 in. of your PVC pipe. Once you have finished, notch the ends of your pipe. Next, get your string and cut 40 in. off. Next you will cut the excess string off. Set the string aside.
Step 2: Step 2
Take your pipe insulation and cut 4 in. off. Then slide the pipe insulation over you PVC pipe. This will be the hand grip. Next you will grab your electrical tape and wrap it around the hand grip you just made. Make sure that it is as tight as possible.
Step 3: Step 3
If you want your bow to have a pop of color keep reading. I wrapped my bow in pink and orange duct tape. This is how it turned out. If you want to add duct tape to yours, just to let you know, you will only need a little bit.
Step 4: Step 4
You are now ready to complete your bow! Take the string that you were told to set aside and put it through the notches that are on the end of your bow. don't be afaid to bend it, just take your time.
Step 5: Step 5
You have now finished your bow, but now you need arrows. Take your Swimming Noodle and cut 2 1/4 in. off of the strip. Then get your dowel. You are going to put a notch at the bottom of your dowel. Once you have finished take the Dowel and poke the end that doesn't have a notch in it through the noodle. I would suggest sticking a pencil through it first. Make sure that the open holes of the noodle are on the sides. Next you get your hot glue gun and you are going to glue the noodle to the dowel to make sure that it stays.
Step 6: Have Fun!
Now your ready to use your bow and arrow! Have Fun!!!
