Step by Step Instructions

1 Printing the template
2 Tracing and cutting
3 Laying out the felt
4 Sticking the felt down
5 Adding scores
6 Making the darts
  • Step 1. Printing the template

    The first step is to print out the template provided and cut out the half circle shapes.  

  • Step 2. Tracing and cutting

    Once you have done that, carefully trace the template pieces onto four different colours of felt sheets and cut them out. You should end up with 12 pieces; four centre sections, four middle sections and four outer sections.

  • Step 3. Laying out the felt

    Before we stick the pieces down, lay the felt sections out on a piece of cardboard and mix and match the colours to make it bright and colourful.

  • Step 4. Sticking the felt down

    Now it’s time to stick the pieces down. Put some glue on the back of the felt pieces and stick them down the same way you laid them out in the previous step. Give them a gentle pat down to make sure they stick nice and flat.

  • Step 5. Adding scores

    When the glue has dried it’s time to put some numbers on for scoring. You can use a permanent marker, paint or anything you like to make the numbers. We’ve used foam numbers on ours and put one number in each section.

  • Step 6. Making the darts

    We are going to use pom poms for our darts but you can use anything you like. Stick the Velcro pads around the pom poms and you’re ready to go!

    This is a great project to aim for over the weekend or school holidays. It’ll be a real bullseye with the kids!
