Needed to replace my last DIY target. So here is how I did it

These are signs that are corrugated plastic. You can get it at your local sign shop or see if the coke guy has any he is going to throw away.

I first bend the signs in the middle.

I cut up some plywood old stuff I had laying around. Old pallets what ever you have. I then staple it to the corners.

Once the supports are in I use house wrap as a facing folding the edges and stapling it to the supports keep it tight. Then start filling I used old clothes with no buttons zippers. Plus the layer in between is plastic wrap

here is a rope handle drill into the support and tie inside
Then I fill it to the top over flowing.

Staple the top
and it is done to shoot at point blank

Something I forgot to tell you guys I cut it in half and make two out of those two sheets of plastic. Also 2 finger pull outs, I love that!

If I were to guess I would 18 -20lbs. Because of the clothes it is heavy. But it doesn't move when shot at, it is as stable as can be.
