Paper Fan and Doilie Spring Garland

Tis the season for fun Spring colored decorations! I made this Brightly colored Paper Fan and Doilie Garland for my Daughters Birthday Party! I used these same colors throughout the party! Bright and fun and perfect for Spring ! I’ll probably keep her up for a few more weeks!

To create these easy Paper Fan just follow my tutorial found here! These were 6″ in diameter once they were done!

I found these plastic doilies used for 80′s wedding bouquets and corsages at my local thrift store! Packs of 30 for $1.50! SCORE!!! Regular paper Doilies work well too!

Using a hot glue gun you’ll attach the paper fans to the doilies!

To create the centers you’ll need to crumble up paper cup cake liners.

Hot glue 5-6 crumbled liners into the center of a liner until it’s full.

Glue them into the center of your paper fans!


I took the smaller doilie and cut out the center pieces.

I tied two 12″ pieces of satin ribbon onto each small doilie.

And used the ribbon to attach two larger doilies to either side!

I added long ribbon to the ends to tie it onto my mantel!





And that’s all she wrote!

    This is so pretty and happy! Does it have the desire to flop forward from the weight in the middle?

    Those plastic doilies rock. What a great find! And I like the "pom poms" facing forward, too!

    So cute, but if I put it up in my house my hubby would revolt! I'll bookmark the idea for an upcoming baby shower, or my daughter's birthday party.
