Okay! If there is one thing you guys don’t know about me….
It’s my craze for archery.
I just love the way they pick up a bow and arrow and start aiming at the target.I always dreamed of having one when a brainstorm came to me…..
Why not that I make one myself! 😀
So from then on I was always on the lookout for a good strong but bendy stick that I could use to make my bow. Finally I found one!!!
For the all other people in the world who go crazy for archery….This tutorial is just for you, because today I’ll show you how to make a bow and arrow!!!!
First of all create slits at the two ends of the stick. It will be easy to tie the string through them now
Then get some strong transparent nylon thread.. and ofcourse tie it through the slits of the bendy stick.Make sure it is extra tight and that it is putting a little bit of pressure on the bow stick. If you stick snaps at that point..it’s just not strong enough.If it works then…..
But HEY…..It seems like there is something missing.It’s the arrows of course!!!!
Find lots and lots of extra straight sticks slightly bigger than the distance between your string and the bow.Around twelve would be great!
Then finallly make a slit in the exact middle of the bow where we will fit the arrow.And that’s all.We have our very own bow.
Here is how I put my arrows…..
I slung them around my back and pretended to be a real huntress. I also made a target board on a square piece of styrofoam and practiced on that!
