How to Make a Mini Crossbow from Bottle Caps & Popsicle Sticks
This miniature crossbow is great fun for target practice, and made solely from household items. It's really simple to make and easy to shoot. And you can even combine this with the flaming arrows I showed you how to make before.
- Plastic bottle top
- 2 lollipop / popsicle sticks
- Strong elastic band
- Cocktail stick, toothpick, skewer, or cotton bud
- Thin and medium size screwdriver
Full instructions for how to build this tiny crossbow are given in my short video below.
You now have a fun mini crossbow, get ready for some target practice!
Try using a cardboard box as a target, or if you're using the fire arrows (you can see how to make those in my previous guide on making a mini bow and arrow), only use them outside, somewhere safe where nothing can catch fire, and keep some water close by just in case.
Make sure you don't hold the fire arrow in the crossbow for too long so you don't set the stick or bottle top on fire.
