DIY Paddle Fan Makeover

Share this post

Sitting in the garage was a basic white paddle fan which at some point we were going to hang it in my daughter’s room. Lily decided she wanted to decorate it which initially scared me. Then she told me her idea…so simple…so adorable.

Step by Step:

We started with a basic white fan from a box (so there was no disassembly required)

1. Find a patterned paper you want to use. My daughter wanted to use a Lilly Pulitzer print which we downloaded off of the computer. I have several digital papers here.

2. Trace around each leg of the fan on the back of the paper.

3. Cut your traced line on the paper.

4. We used a hole puncher to make holes where the screw would go.

  2. Is that any special kind of paper in terms of weight? Just regular paper you use in a printer, or is it lighter like tissue paper or heavier like cardstock?

  4. Love this idea it came out great! I am thinking to do this to the drawers of a bureau I have, initially I was going to paint it but it seems to difficult. Do you think the mod poge and paper stay on a thicker wood?

Tell me what you think...
