Sandalwood Fans DIY
Posted 11 May 2010 - 12:04 AM
I'm really happy with how they turned out and the fans should come in handy at 2pm in the Mexican heat, lol.
This is my first DIY, I was scared but it was lots of fun.

The quality of them was very good and they'll hold up for the day/week or as take homes if guests want. I got them from Oriental trading, but I'm sure sandalwood fans are all about the same quality and about a dollar each. These had the design painted on them and on about 8 or so the paint had also splattered onto the back which was supposed to be plain. I didn't complain to OT and feel it too much of a hassle to do a return so plain fans are a safer bet!
I'll try to make up a template for future brides when I find all my craft stuff. I had to suddenly move out of my old place as they decided it would be fun to jackhammer my roof from 7am - 6pm everyday for the rest of the summer...uuuuugh. I'll keep everyone posted though. The template is a bit weird since you can't cut the piece rectangular since the fan is wider at the top than bottom.
Back to planning!
