diy leaf fan for a luau

I'm pretty excited to share this simple leaf fan just in time for all the upcoming summer Luau parties.

supplies needed:
1/8" wide ribbon (only because it's the cheapest at .50 cents a spool), faux leaves (I got mine from the dollar tree in a bunch, each bunch came with 5 leaves), scissors and wire cutters (if you have a bunch and not individual).

1. gather your individual leaves (use wire cutters if they are on a bunch)

2. cut ribbon approx. 2.5' long

3. tie a knot starting at the top of the stem and start to criss-cross the ribbon around the stem working your way down.

4. tie a knot at the bottom of the stem and criss-cross back up to your starting point.

5. tie a bow and your done!

These little fans are such a cute touch for a luau. What better way to keep cool at a party.
Do you have any cute, "simple" luau ideas I need to know about?
