Introduction: Paracord Branch Bow



Making a homemade paracord and branch bow is pretty straight forward and works good. It’s a cool thing to make when camping or outdoors. Make sure never to point at anybody theses can shoot pretty hard. There pretty basic all you need is a good branch paracord some tape, and you cutting tools. You can make your own arrows for this or you could use regular arrows.



Step 1: Supplies and Tools:

  • Supplies:
  • branch
  • camo duct tape
  • paracord
  • Tools:
  • saw
  • pocket knife


Step 2: Making:

  • First your going to want to find a good branch to use for your bow. I found a good straight branch that was about 5 feet long.
  • Then you gonna wanna cut out notches for where your paracord sting is going to be tied around the branch.
  • Cutting this notch in the branch will make a groove for the paracord to lay so it doesn’t slide off the branch.
  • Then you are going to want to tie a knot on the first end of the bow in the notch you cut out.
  • Then you wanna pull the paracord tight bending the banch and then tying down the end with your paracord give the the bow the bending form.
  • Then in the center of your bow your going to want to cut out a notch for your arrow rest.
  • I added camo duct tape to mine for support and looks.
