Homemade Sling Shot

The young gentleman on the right of this photo has been making sling shots out of found branches and rubber bands. Eric suggested we ask Mister Jalopy for some used bike inner tubes to craft an industrial strength sling shot. Inner tubes were graciously donated. Sturdy branches were acquired. The pull was cut.

The branch and pull were threaded together.

And the product was tested.


  1. Greetings, I'm trying to contact you by email but your link doesn't work and so I'm just going to post my request here.

    I'm interested in using the last photo above in a contest specifically he Cartoon Pygmalion 5 challenge. My entry is putting an "Angry Bird" in the sling and a "pig" in the background. If you're curious with what I came up with, please send me an email at

    I'm a mom of 4 kids and so I understand your concern in how your photo will be used. I would just like to get your official permission to be able to use it and enter it in the contest. I will give your blog full credit for the photo.

    Thank you for considering. I'll be waiting for your reply.

    Ermina S.
