Hi all! Today I want to share with you my Diy Patriotic Sign Made Out of a Fan Blade. A few weeks back I had a chance to go to Habitat for Humanity, and I never pass up on a chance to go there or any thrift store. The prices have gone up but I still found a few items like this crackled finish fan blade for $1. I bought all 6, I just love this crackled finish, don’t you?
Since I need to get busy on my Patriotic projects before the 4th of July comes and goes, like Memorial Day did for me. When I seen these fan blades with the crackled finish I thought to myself that it would be perfect in some kind of patriotic decor.
I was afraid with the slick finish that it wouldn’t hold paint very well. So off to my favorite store, Hobby Lobby! I picked up some unfinished wood letters USA, and a cute wood star ornament already painted like the American flag. Which would be perfect for my project that I had in mind.

Project list at the bottom of this post
Once home I cleaned my fan blades.
Next, I painted the letters with two coats of acrylic paint using red, and blue. They came already painted white.
Then I laid them out in place on my fan blade.
Using Gorilla Glue, I glued each one down in place.
I first removed the twine from the American flag ornament before gluing it to the bottom of my fan blade.
Using the twine that I removed from the ornament I strung it through the top hole of the fan blade for hanging the Patriotic sign. This Diy Patriotic Sign Made Out of a Fan Blade was another simple project, just a little painting, gluing, and all done.
Looks like I’m going to have to make another one if I want to take one to my craft booth. The hubby is ex-military and very Patriotic, once he’s seen my Patriotic sign he laid claim to it. Good thing I have five more fan blades.
