This is the easiest DIY I know but its so effective. My friends birthday was last week and we decided to have a bit of atmosphere at the event with a festival/boho theme. This was one of the creative piece we came up with that cost very little to make. So lets get started…..
First the material… Colorful newspaper, I went with a free Urban Outfitters magazine, Twine, a scissors, double sided tape and of course no craft session would be complete with an Irish cup of tea. Barrys of course.
This step is pretty easy, most people learn this in primary school. Fan your paper front and back to make an accordion. How i did this step was first folded my paper in half and half again , keep going till you have a small fold left. Just to get the outline and then start folding front and back. It will make more sense when approaching it.
Repeat this 4 times.
With each fan, pinch it in the middle and fold. Do each fan in this step.
Tape two accordions together in the middle, it should look like this.
Do the same with the next two, add them on by taping them by the fold in the middle.
When your finished taping, the next thing to do is tie a string in the middle of your fan.
Bring together the sides…
To make your paper fan look the way they do, take a small piece of tape and bring together the sides of the fan to make a complete circle.
That’s it, its so simple.
In the next post, I’ll show you the end result. Happy DIYing.
