Whether you’re 5 or 50 years old, everyone loves a PVC marshmallow gun and guess what? They’re super easy and cheap to make. Here’s how to make one for yourself in three easy steps. Let’s get started!
When I was in high school, I went on a group date with about 50 people and everyone had their own marshmallow gun. We had an all out war and I just remember there were mini marshmallows all over the ground. Ever since then, I have wanted to make my own PVC marshmallow gun. Well, I should have done it sooner. It’s super easy.
Gather your PVC marshmallow gun supplies
These guns are super easy to make and it only costs a whopping $5 for all of the supplies at Home Depot. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2-foot 1/2 inch PVC pipe
- 2 PVC 90 degree elbow joints (1/2 inch)
- 1 PVC tee joint (1/2 inch)
- 1 PVC end cap slip (1/2 inch)
- Gorilla glue or PVC pipe cement
- Spray paint (optional)
- Saw or PVC pipe cutter
Step #1: Cut pipe into pieces for your marshmallow shooter
First, you’ll need to cut the 2-foot PVC pipe into four pieces to the following lengths:
- 1 (7″) length
- 3 (3″) lengths
The best and easiest way to cut your pipe is with a PVC pipe cutter. But if you don’t have one of those, you can use a circular saw or even a hand saw.
Step #2: Spray paint the PVC pipes
This step is optional but this is how you make your marshmallow blow gun your own. I decided to paint mine a lime green but you can choose whatever color you would like.
Step #3: Glue the PVC pieces together
Your last and final step is to glue the PVC pieces together in the right order to complete your PVC marshmallow gun. I used PVC pipe cement but you can use super glue, gorilla glue or whatever you want. The PVC pipe cement is blue so sometimes it shows on the edges.
That’s it! A PVC marshmallow gun is the perfect gift for birthdays or Christmas. Plus, it’s super inexpensive. My mom gave each of her grandkids a marshmallow shooter for Christmas and everyone loved it!
Here’s a short video that I made explaining how to make your own marshmallow gun. Check it out! And good luck with your DIY project.
