Adult Supervision Needed


How to Make

  1. Open out the fan completely and paint the paper area with two coats of red acrylic paint. Leave to dry.
  2. Either make a Dog template from thin card and draw around this with a pencil onto the fan. Or, draw a Dog freehand directly onto the fan.
  3. Outline the drawn Dog with a thick black fibre pen then fill the design with black acrylic paint.
  4. Sketch 2018 in the middle of the fan with a pencil in your neatest handwriting and paint over with gold metallic paint.
  5. Paint the wooden frame of the fan with gold metallic paint and leave to dry.
  6. Draw face detail on the dog using a white fine tip acrylic deco pen.

Top Tip

For a deep gold colour, add another coat of gold metallic paint to the frame. The fan is light enough to fix to the wall with Blu Tack.
