DIY Paper Fans

Hi Everyone! This is Jennifer from Town and Country Living and I have an easy paper craft project for you! This probably isn’t the first time you’ve seen these cute little paper fans strewn on a garland … they seem to be growing in popularity. If you’ve been wanting to make one for yourself, look no further! Today I’m sharing step-by-step instructions to make these little DIY paper fans that you can turn into a banner to decorate your home.

Pink Paper Fan GarlandThese pink paper fans were made from scrapbook paper.

They’re an easy, economical way to add color to your home.

Here’s how to make these easy DIY paper fans …


Paper Fan Steps 1-31. Cut your pages to size.

2. Fold the pages accordion style.

3. Fold the accordian pages in half.


Paper Fan Steps 4-64. Tie 2 accordian folded pages together, long sides together.

5. Glue edges of accordions together to make a circle.

6. Add a button in the center of your paper fan.
