How To Make a Dart Blow Gun
Here’s a project my dad and I did last year, making a Dart Blow Guns! These are fun toys you can make in a matter of minutes, and we enjoy shooting paper darts at safe objects like balloons or plastic bottles.
As always, exercise safety when shooting off darts. Like the old saying goes
You’ll Shoot Yer Eye Out Kid
Enough said, ready to begin the build? Lets Go!
Material and Tools List
- 1/2 x 2-ft PVC pipe
- 3/4 x 1/2 Female to male PVC pipe Reducer
- Duct Tape
- Electrical Tape
- Black Spray Paint
- 1/2 Pipe Insulation
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
Assembling the Dart Blowgun
Connect the PVC Pipe and the Pipe Reducer
Spray Paint the Tips of the Blowgun. Allow to dry.
Cut 2 pieces of Duct Tape to Size and place sticky side up on a flat surface
Roll the Pipe on the Tape, repeat for the opposite side
Apply electrical tape to both ends of the dart gun
Making The Paper Dart Holder
Cut a 3/4″ Donut from the insulation. This is going to become the Paper Dart Holder
Slide the Dart Holder unto the Dart Gun
Apply Black Electrical Tape Around the Dart Holder to prevent it form stretching or breaking apart
Heat the Screwdriver tip under a flame
Make 6-8 evenly spaced holes into the Dart Holder, as pictured below, to create openings for the darts
Allow to air dry and cool
That’s it, now you have a fully functional and stylish dart gun!
Ensure there aren’t any laws or provisions against making/owning one of these in your local jurisdiction.
