Sometimes being a wedding planner is like being a child...

...in that you get to do so many fun crafty projects. I've been seeing these D.I.Y paper fans or paper flowers or whatever they're called, for a while now and figured they look pretty easy and I'd give it a whirl.

Pleased to say they most definitely are easy to make. And since we're all getting slightly sick of bunting, they're a good cheap replacement.

All you need is good quality paper in whatever colours you like, some monofilament (transparent, plastic wire type stuff), and whatever you want to stick them to the wall with (I actually just used white tak) but you can hang them too.

Not going to bother with the whole how-to because you're all pretty clever and it's not exactly hard...

Once you've artfully folded two pieces of A4 you staple it together, tie some monofilament through the middle to keep it together, make a hole with a hole punch and voila...

Good for filling blank/dull spaces this is one D.I.Y project that really is super easy and depending on your chosen colours can fit any 'theme'.*

What do you think lovelies? Would you use these paper fans for your wedding decor, or do they remind you too much of school (sure I made these when I was about seven).

* I use the word 'theme' ironically of course. I don't know about you but 'wedding theme' is definitely one of those phrases that gives me the heebie jeebies.


  1. I would use them. I've been looking for ideas to decorate my wedding marquee and these are great.
