Marshmallow Gun how to
Making a marshmallow gun is a fun easy project. We saw these at a craft fair for $12.00. We made two of them for about $3.00 each. This gun shoots mini marshmallows and is made from 1/2" PVC pipe. You can buy the supplies at any hardware store. Buy an eight or 10 foot section of 1/2" PVC pipe, at least three "T" connectors and at least three caps for each gun.
The PVC pipe can be cut with a hack saw. In this picture you can see a Dremmel Tool with a cut off wheel, we used it because it cuts faster.
We made a 7" piece, a 5" piece and five 5" pieces. The pieces just slide together and you can arrange them how you want to make a general gun shape. The pieces aren't glued together, that way you can take it apart to store the gun, rearrange it's look and can get into it if a marshmallow gets stuck.
Load a marshmallow into the back of the gun and blow hard.
