The Webelos in Den 2 will be making arrows for the Arrow of Light Ceremony

Here are the Steps to make the Arrows:

Cut 5/16" dowels into 2 foot sections and stain

cut Eazy Felt (stiffer than regular felt) into Arrow Head shapes (3" long 2.5" wide)

hold two Blue and two Yellow feathers about 1 inch from end of dowel

Tightly wrap twine from end of down towards front fully covering the 1" of feathers.  The last two turns tie overhand knots into the wrap:

add Hot glue to arrow head attach dowel and other side of arrow head while glue still liquified.

add drop of hot glue to end of feather wrap so knots dont untie.  once hot glue is cooled, cut the extra twine.
