It's hard to believe how easy it is to make these gorgeous paper fan decorations. You and your kids will absolutely love making these lovely paper fans to hang around the house for a party, a holiday celebration, or just to give a room some beautiful bursts of color. (It's an awesome idea for decorating kids' rooms.) The hardest part will be deciding where to put all the lovely hanging fans you make once you are done!

    You'll need just a few materials to make these beautiful hanging paper fans:

  • Various sizes of colorful, good-quality decorative paper in pretty colors and designs (available at crafts stores or through retailers like Paper Source)*
  • scissors
  • glue stick or a good double-sided tape such as Therm O Web's Supertape
  • Scotch tape
  • baker's twine or thin ribbon (You will need about 3 to 4 feet for each fan.)
*NOTE: Each fan will require 2 to 3 sheets of paper equal in size.
