How to Make Vintage Dart




A dart board was hanging in my house since before I could remember. It was my fathers, and it was so well used that he had rotated the numbers a few times to keep twenty wedge from looking ragged.



I got my first set of darts when I was 15 or so, and learned to play Oh One, and Shanghai. Darts is one of those games that is easy to learn and fun to play, so when I saw a set of vintage darts I knew I had to try and make them.

The really trick was the flight. The classic dart uses turkey feather. Since I didn’t have any spare turkey feathers running around I started looking for alternative materials.


The milk bottles were on hand so I tried them! I’m really happy with this project and think they are some of the coolest looking push pins I’ve seen! As they will never replace my tungsten darts! :)
