This Instructable gives you good instructables to make a goodworking arrow for under $10. The pictures should hopefully explain what the finished prouct should look like once you've completed it.
Step 1: Tools and Objects needed to make the arrow
To buy these objects you can find them in your local hardware shop:
1.Metre long wooden dowel.
You can find the feathers needed in a carpark or you can buy official feathers from archery stores.(You need three feathers for one arrow.)
Instead of buying thin string something that is even better is the string found underneath the grip on the handle of a cricket bat, which I used in my instructable.
