Get paracord or any non stretchable cord

Step 7:

Drill a hole in each side and cut the cord to the same length as your wood and tie a simple knot

Step 8:

Cut off a small piece of the wood that is left and cut the tip with a knife also if you have small dowel rods those work a little better . Now you have a home made bow and arrow. Thanks for checking it out!!!
