Tissue-Paper Fan Decorations

Opened halfway and layered, these tissue-paper fans make a breezy addition to a porch or a gazebo. 


  • Painters' tape
  • Paper fan


  1. Step 1

    Create fans in different sizes by trimming diagonally along the closed fans' unstapled ends. Open each fan halfway; peel off several layers from 1 side, leaving the staples in place. 

  2. Step 2

    Use painters' tape to hang the fans.
