Homemade Weddings: Crafty Hanging Paper Fans

wedding venue interior with hanging pinwheels

Getting married in a barn meant that I had a lot of space to fill to try to make things look more wedding-y than sheep shearing-y.

The high ceiling and wooden beams were crying out for decoration of some sort, and I wanted something simple, impactful and (most importantly) cheap.

Having not yet discovered Pinterest, I went old school and created a folder on my computer to collate any useful inspiration. I called this folder ‘hanging things’ (in hindsight I realise this could have signified more sinister pass times…)   I then tracked down as many ideas as I could from wedding blogs – from bunting to lanterns, to origami birds

Using bribes of Haribo and cider, I lured my unsuspecting bridesmaids into testing out some of these ideas in a tipsy craft-y session.  Our first attempt was tissue paper pom-poms, which looked lovely but were rather labour- intensive.  I also realised that they would be difficult to transport.  They do look fab though – here’s how to make them.

For our next attempt we took inspiration from this wedding and tried our hand at circular fans or ‘pinwheels’ or ‘rosettes’.  We made them in different sizes and colours and strung them together vertically on fishing lines to help fill the space.   The experiment was a success, and over the next few weeks I set about producing them on (what felt like) an industrial scale.  After an incident where I superglued my fingers together, I roped in professional expertise in the form of bridesmaid Ruth (a primary school teacher), who came armed with metre rulers, craft supplies, bags of patience, and brought some order to the chaos.
