Raffia Fans with Ribbon covered handles
Posted 04 June 2007 - 02:18 PM
I ordered 48- 10" Natural Rafia fans for $31.80.
To make them a little prettier, I purchases 5/8" ribbon in green and blue.
Using a glue dot, I started on the left inside of the handle. Those glue dots hold immediately. I just started wrapping. You can waste allot of ribbon if you overlap too much. Work you way around the handle when you reach the top of the right side, wrap around back and around once or twice more.
I've seen some with bows tied on top and/or hang tags. I've also seen images of fans with a thank you glued to the fan. (we may do this if I can get it done this week).
It didn't take me very long at all. I just did a few over a couple of nights while watching tv. Two glue dots and about 2 feet of ribbon each.
Be warned about the fans though. Because they are hand woven and made of natural materials, the fan sizes vary greatly.. 2" plus. Some of them were tiny compared to really the large ones.
