Dowel rods
Gold spray paint
Black paint
Paint brush
White feathers
Black cardstock

Glue sticks

Things to do:
1. Spray the wooden dowel with gold spray paint, covering the entire surface. Allow time to dry, so you don’t smudge the paint.

5. Use hot glue to attach the arrowhead to the end of the dowel.

6. Use hot glue to attach a feather to the other end of the dowel.
