(Yet Another) Way to Make Your Own Nerf Darts

Introduction: (Yet Another) Way to Make Your Own Nerf Darts

Ok, so. You've got a Nerf gun, awesome. But, you only get 12 darts and more darts are too expensive, what do you do? MAKE YOUR OWN!!

Now, this isn't from-scratch, but more of an adaption for the darts. FYI, I only know that these work in the Longshot, any other guns will have to be tested by you.

This is my first Instructable, I'm not gonna say go easy, but don't ream me out, ok?

Step 1: Materials:

Some foam darts, or tubes.
The weird part: Crayons. Normal Crayola Crayons.
Possibly some scissors.

Step 2: Preparing Your Darts (or Tubes)

Ok, so, if you've got darts, just try and pull the tip off without ripping the foam. IF, and ONLY IF you must, cut the heads off the darts. But keep it close to the plastic tip so you don't lose any length.

Step 3: Weighting Your Darts (and Sealing Them)

Ok, this is a REALLY difficult step.

Take a crayon, doesn't matter what colour, and break about a quarter off.

Then, work the crayon into whichever end of the foam tubes you want, until it's flush.  It will look a bit bulged out, but don't worry.

Step 4:


Darts that are weighted, and fly pretty good, too!
Ok, well, thanks for reading, don't forget to rate!

P.S. Sorry about blurry pics, I have shaky hands.

    Haha thanks, it's really cheap, and honestly I figured it out because I was at my friend's house with no darts, and he had a Tommy 20, so I pulled the heads off and just tried lol.
