Marshmallow Shooters

  This isn't what I was originally planning to make for my brother-in-law's birthday in March. Unfortunately, my first plan ended up totally not working (after I'd spent several days on it...), and since I was already making one of these for his younger brother's birthday a week later, I decided they could just use them together!

  I've seen a lot of different versions of marshmallow shooters, but I mostly followed the directions for this one, which is just PVC pipe and fittings. I added a length of pipe to the top fitting for the mouthpiece, because it was a bit awkward to access without it, and I painted all of the fittings with Rustoleum Universal Metallic spray paint in Dark Stainless Steel before assembling everything.

  I wrapped the pipes with black and camouflage patterned Duck tape.

  I divided a bag of marshmallows between two plastic sandwich bags, wrapped the tops with some of the camouflage patterned tape, and stapled on a quick tag made with some black cardstock and silver embossing powder for the ammunition:

  These were a hit... my husband (who cut all of the pipes for me) had to test them out before he let me gift them and didn't want to give them up! They have a surprisingly long range, and are pretty accurate for shooting what basically amounts to tiny pillows. ;-)

 They were better than my first plan, for sure! =)

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I feel the urge to make several, but I know what I'd be in for if I gave these to my nephews, and I just don't know if I'm prepared to deal with that, lol.

    1. Haha, I know the feeling! There's a reason I haven't made any for my own kids, or my husband. ;-)
