Default Arrow of Light

My grandfather made one of these for each of his grandsons if we earned our 'Arrow of Light' award in the Cub Scouts. Then if we went on to become an Eagle Scout he would tell us how he made it.

I recently became a Cub Scout leader and have two boys receiving their Arrow of Light award tonight. This is the first one I've made start to finish. Of course next time will always be better, but still happy with how it turned out.

Well, having both my arrow of light, and an Eagle Scout, I'd love to know how you did this.....

Your time can't be better spent being a Cub scout leader working for your boy"s to become Eagle Scouts. Congratulation on the comment.

Nice first try on the protect, if it were easy everyone would make them, Right.

Where’s the story? I know how the arrow gets through the hole. Just don’t know how you got the hole in the lightbulb!
