This blog is full of all kinds of crafting tips and projects to create. I love to create out of all kinds of fun textures and colors and materials, I create a little bit every day, so I decided why not share them with you, my crafting friends, moms wanting fun projects to do with kids and grandkids.
Craft's I've done with my kids,craft nights and projects I've done over the years on TV, so please check back often to see what's new.
Crafts Fun and a little Pixie Dust
Askig Me Why I Create Is Like Asking Me Why I BREATHE
PVC Bow and Arrow
½ inch PVC pipe
½ inch Foam pipe covers
1.Cut your pipe into 3 equal pieces
2.Heat up the PVC pipe in the middle it only takes a few
minutes. Next bend it to the shape that you want be careful it’s HOT!
3.Cut your Foam pipe cover about 6 inches and slide onto
the middle of the Bow.
4.Cut a one inch notch into the ends of the pipe. I used
my scroll saw. Next place the knot into the slit. Pull tight and make sure the
end won’t slip or come out.
5.Sand the edges where you cut the PVC pipe so it’s
6.Cut enough string so you have enough to tie a knot at
each end of the bow and burn it so it won’t fray.
7.Wrap Duct tape around each end of the Bow over the
string so it won’t pop out.
8.Add Duct tape around the foam so it keeps it in place.
Now you can decorate your bow any way you like.
9.I cut my dowels into 16 inches that seems to work good
for my Arrows. I cut a slit in the end to fit over the string.
10.For the end of the Arrow I glued on erasers and
wrapped Duct Tape around to hold it tight.
·One 10’ PVC pipe
will make 3 bows. Cut it into three equal pieces.
·Pull your string
really tight and leave extra just in case you need to tighten it later.
·It takes lots of
practice but you will master it and have hours of fun.
