    DIY shot and see targets,
    1) Cover paper with shelf liner or clear tape;
    2) Spray paint either use up old cans or <$ Paint @ HD, Wally world or ?.
    3) Allow paint to completely dry, cut to the desired size, embellish.

    [NOTE] I don't recommend LOWES 99 cent paint it doesn't dry as well as the others.
    Lowes

    Other


    I prefer paint colors other than black, (I lose my sites in a black target)
    Matte finish is easier to see.

    I believe you can tape the holes and pint over the tape to use the target again.

    9” x 11” targets
    I like to use a black felt marker, draw a cross the use a compass to draw circles 1 inch apart

    7”x7” targets you can make a template and spray a cross on it or use a marker

    7” plates I use a compass to draw circles 1 inch apart and put a smiley face sticker in the middle

    Tool Bench Clear Packaging Tape, 45-yd. Rolls dollar tree $1
    22x28 poster board 69 cents dollar tree
    Con-Tact Quick Cover Clear Self-Adhesive Shelf Liners, 18x54" dollar tree $1
    20pcs. 7” plates (1 package of 20) Dollar Tree =$1
    ” 108pcs. gold/red foil smiley face stickers Dollar Tree $1
    1 can spray paint Lowes, HD, Wally-world $1


    7” plates
    $2.00 40 plates (two packages of 20) 2x$1 =$2 Dollar Tree
    $1.00 1 can spray paint $1 Lowes, HD, Wally world
    $ .80 1/5 roll packing tape Lowes $4/5 = $.8
    $3.80
    $ .20 marker
    $4.00 /40 =$ .10 per plate


    4 x $ .69 Poster Boards, 22x28" = $2.76
    3 x $1.00 Shelf Liners, 18x54" = $3.00
    2 x $1.00 Spray paint (8 sq ft per can) = $2
    = $7.76 for 4 22x28 sheets

    7”x7” targets
    $7.76 / 48 = $ .16 ea

    9” x 11” targets
    $7.76 / 24 = $ .32 ea

    Step 1, cover the paper with clear adhesive plastic or tape









    Step 2 Paint and allow to dry










    Step 3 cut to desired size/shape

    Step 4 Embellish as desired
    The quickest and easiest is to just a highly visible sticker in the middle.

    I finally got a chance to shoot some more:
    these were shot with 44 mag and 9x18 Mak

    The Plates with tape on them worked well





    These holographic Sheets from Dollar tree, 20 sheets for $1 work great without any tape or plastic,
    Just 1 coat of 99cent paint from home depot and presto. Only downside is they are thin sheets



    Now to use what you have on hand, I taped flatted 12 pack soda boxes, painted and embellished them
    and I'm very happy with the results. 2 target per box


    Staedtler Geometry Compass (550 65 A6) $5.49

    Nice tutorial!


    I have been doing this a short time myself. center stickers included, but we use just the ones for yard/garage sale price stickers. I think I saw where you posted about making them in the "What did I do in the Reloading Room today" topic. Glad ya took the time to show it in pics for folks. I really like the shelf liner idea, & the holograph looking sheets. Gonna try that sometime if I rememeber to pick some up.


    I really like the idea.


    We just used to use plain reg. paper plates & then those little "cake" plates you mention, plus cereal & beer/soda pop boxes before & use a wide black or red permanent"magic" marker to make the bullseye & rings. Gonna have to try to find one of those white or silver ones like what it appears you have, to try that myself. Likely gonna use old lids for the rings though, until I can find a compass around here.


    Great project to do with my grandboys too. They are starting to learn firearm safety & marksmanship here at our place with bb-guns. At 7 & 8 they are already pretty good shots, but the 7 yr old shines... They really like it when they can easily see where they are hitting & do not have to walk up to paper targets to do so. The storebought "spinners" are fun too, but they like to make the homemade"See-'em" targets too.

    Thanks again for taking the time!

    BTW, This should be a "Sticky", IMO.

    @Grmps,

    Have you ever tried spray clear coat instead of clear adhesive plastic. That might work better on the paper plates or other targets that are not flat.

    I've tried clear coat, I just need to find the plates I sprayed
    once you get your system down the tape goes pretty quick.
    When I find the one I sprayed with clear I will post them

    Made up a batch with 2 types of sprayed clear coat I had lying around
    will post results when my back and weather cooperate and I can go put holes n them.

    I have no clue on Excel. Can't help out there.
