Gather your supplies
Cut 4 notches on the Popsicle stick (2 on each end) with the knife.
Place in bowl of water for 15 minutes, and put something on top to keep it down.
Cut string so that it goes 2 inches past length of stick.
Tie string tightly around notches.
Cut Q-tip 3/4 the way down, and keep the longer side.
Cut a notch for the arrow to sit in.
Reinforce the string. [optional, but if you don't, it will fray]
Pull back and shoot!
