Carnival fan decor

Apart from the garlands we made for decorating our flat for the carnival season, E. and I made this really large and spectacular window fan decor.

E. is in the phase of folding. She isn’t interested in folding her clothes (what a pity!) but paper. I thought we should do something with this folding. Well, our window fan decor turned out pretty well.

E. chose 7-8 different coloured paper (A4) and we folded them starting at the short side. When we were finished with all 8 sheets, we started to staple them at the bottom to make a fan. Then we stapled them together on their sides.   Actually, E. stapled them very carefully (under my close supervision).

After stapling the sides together, we realised 7 was enough. I put a string on the top of it and hang it in the window.

To be honest after a day I found a middle too scruffy (the staples were visible and there were holes between the sheets so I cut out a circle and glued it in the middle.

Pretty and easy, eh?

How do you decorate your home during the carnival season?
