To make a flame bow you need to enchant a bow using an enchantment table.

Based of calculations using the Minecraft enchantment simulator you nee to be enchanting using at least 5 levels in order to have any chance of getting the flame enchantment. Best results can be found by enchanting at the maximum level(30).

    You can also shoot arrows through lava to set them on fire.
