Clothes Peg Fan

Clothes Peg Fan

Posted 2013-09-17 by Jane Streetfollow


Here's a quick but satisfying project to make a pleated fan with a wooden clothes peg handle. We decorated ours with chalk pastels on a dark background - this was a fun change from the usual crayons and paint.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
  • Piece of dark coloured thin card or thick paper
  • Wooden clothes peg (dolly peg)
  • Chalk pastels
  • Spray matt varnish or hairspray



  • Method
  • Decorate your paper using the chalk pastels. Have fun exploring making bright shapes on a dark background and smudging the chalk.

  • Fun with chalk pastels




  • Once you're happy with the design, spray with Matt varnish or hairspray to fix the chalk.
  • Fold the paper into a concertina.



  • Insert the concertina into the slit in the wooden clothes peg.

  • Slide the concertina into the slit in the peg to make a sturdy handle


  • Your fan is now ready to use.

  • Please upload a picture of your creation via the comments forum.
