In last week’s blog post, we decorated the photoshoot with red and blue paper fans. They were so easy to put up and even easier to make. This inspired us to create free paper fan printables for our readers – just in time for Fourth of July!
You can make them beforehand, or even during the party as an activity for the little ones. Because of its simplicity, this DIY is perfect to make with the kids.
Use the paper fans to decorate the walls, the food table, or even your party favors! The possibilities are limitless.
What you need:
- Free printable
- Clear tape
- Print and cut our Free Patterned Paper Fan Printables.
- Fold the square in half so it makes a rectangle.
- Fold the rectangle like an accordion.
- Bend the rectangle in half so it makes a v-shape.
- Open up the fan. Tape the edges together with clear tape.
