WARNING! I am no responsible for injuries do not shoot at the eyes. Use common sense people!
Step 1: Gather Materials
- bamboo stick/things (5)
- cap from a 2 liter
- rubber bands (3)
- hot glue gun
- pliers or really strong hand
Step 2: Main Triangle Frame
Take 3 bamboo sticks and hot glue them together in a triangle. Make sure at the corners theirs a little notch ( will explain in the next step ) see pic.
Step 3: The Base
Get 2 more bamboo sticks and glue 1 to each side where you want the bottom to be in a triangle shape. Make sure the base sticks are in between the notch. See pic.
Step 4: Support Sticks
Now to your 2 pencils and pull the metal and eraser end off. Now this next part is kinda hard to explain so I'll let the picture speak for itself.
Step 5: Launcher Thingy
Get your bottle cap and hot glue 3 rubber bands to it take 2 of them after there on and glue them to the pencil tops and put the eraser thing back on. Then take the last rubberband and tie it to the bottem bamboo stick and put some glue on it.
