Painted Fan Blades

Four painted fan blades for the seasons

Boring white ceiling fan to fun in less than 2 hours! 1. Disassemble the blades. 2. Paint the blades with sky blue acrylic paint. 3. Wait for paint to dry (about 45 minutes). 4. Use a small brush to paint fluffy clouds of different shapes and sizes. 5. Spray with acrylic paint sealer in matte or gloss. 6. Wait 1 hour for sealer to dry. 7. Reassemble and enjoy!

Ceiling fan blades used as signs in the classroom....Can be used for many different things...I just painted them and added sticky letters :)

DIY: dont buy a new fan just re do the one you have. Paint, cover blades with wall paper, scrap paper, tissue paper, paint... match your new decor. Neat and crafty idea ;)

ceiling fan re-do. I took the blades and the brackets down and spray painted them as well. I spray painted the rest while it was still hanging....I protected the ceiling around it with paper. After the blades dried, I cut the fabric of my choice to size (you could use paper) and used modge podge to adhere it.

I just made this fan for Lucy. remove fan blades and spray paint, sparkle glitter while still wet, decoupage cutouts from her fave book pinkalicious. total cost 4.98

Always wondered what you could do with fan blades! Gets me thinkin...

Ceiling fan that we painted the blades using paint from Home Depot. We used Treasure Isle, Orange Zest, Deep Orchid and Brilliant Sea. Then we used Disney's Finding Nemo Self Stick Room Appliqués From Home Depot to finish the look.

Took the fan blades off, spray painted pink and added simple paintings to brighten up a kids room :)

Fan blade ghost! First fill in fan blade holes with plastic wood and let set. Then paint black and let dry. Cover with crackle paint or crackle glue and let dry. Then paint white and it will crackle as it drys. Use black paint to make face.
