DIY Wedding Program Fans

In our last DIY project, we showed you how to create easy and elegant-as-ever succulent party favors. Today, we’re going to show you how to turn your wedding programs into fans for the perfect way to keep guests cool… and they can be created in two simple steps!

Program Fan Supplies

  • Popsicle sticks
  • A stylish wedding program… we used our Tropical Tryst and Matching Initials designs
  • Cute scrapbook paper or plain cardstock to complement your programs
  • Scissors
  • Scrapbook tape or rubber cement

Step 1: Cut and Glue

If your program is simply designed, we recommend a colorful backing. If it features a graphic or bold design, we recommend simple cardstock for the backing… but in the end it’s up to you! If using scrapbook paper, cut it down to size. Then, secure your wooden stick to the back of your program.

Step 2: Tape

With your tape, secure your program to its backing counterpart (be it scrapbook paper or cardstock). Be sure to secure all four sides with your adhesive. Tip: To keep your fan from being flimsy, make sure to use a strong cardstock backing. If you’re using a thinner cardstock or scrapbook paper, use a longer stick as your base.

Step 3: Enjoy!

    I’m having a summer wedding and doing this very project. 🙂 We found actual craft fan handles though that are wavy shaped instead of straight popscicle sticks. Also I suggest using a corner cutter to round the corners so guests aren’t waving sharp cardstock edges at their faces.
