Free 4th of July Printable Fans

Thanks for Sharing!

Do you love summer cookouts but dislike the heat? I’ve made free 4th of July printable fans that you can print out and make into hand fans.

They will help you show your American spirit and surely help you beat some of the heat. Maybe you can swat a few mosquitoes, too!

FREE 4TH OF JULY PRINTABLE FANS

free 4th of july printable fans

My patriotic project will cost less than $10.00 for 4 fans, depending on which of the two ways the hand fans are made (see the 2 options further down.)

I got the designs printed at Staples for 75 cent each and the craft paint was on sale at Hobby Lobby for about a $1.00 each. UPDATE 2024 – prices may have increased.

I already had the stir sticks, foam paint brush, and glue on hand, but you can get those supplies at the Dollar Store if needed.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  • 4 to 8 laser prints on 110 lb. cardstock
  • 4 paint stir sticks
  • red craft paint
  • foam paint brush
  • scissors or paper cutter
  • craft glue
  • sturdy glue
  • navy craft paint ~ optional
  • dot tool ~ optional
  • white cardstock ~ optional

HOW TO MAKE 4TH OF JULY HAND FANS

TWO OPTIONS TO JOIN THE HAND FANS:

  • Glue two printed designs back to back or…
  • Glue one design to a white sheet of cardstock

If you choose to only use one design and one white sheet, use a dot tool or the end of a pencil eraser to dot the white side with navy paint so it doesn’t look so plain on that side. This is how I completed my fans.

  1. Allyson, really fun idea with your patriotic printables turning them into fans!!! It’s just beginning to turn hot here in North Central Texas and even at 90 degrees, it’s a bit unbearable for this former Californian who is used to a lot less humidity with heat, lol! I think we all need a fan or two, to keep in our purses, in the car. Really fun idea!!! <3

    Enjoy your fans and happy summertime to you,
    Hugs,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Glad you like the fan idea, Barbara! I’ve lived in 4 southern states and that humidity can be unbearable, for sure. I’ve visited CA once and the weather was heaven! Happy to summer to you, also. 🙂

  2. Allyson, these will be a great to have come July 4th. The weather here come July will be scorching the fans will be a great favor to give to your guest and how adorable they are. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Allyson how clever are you? Such a great idea. Goodness knows with the 96% humidity here we need those fans and not for just the 4th of July! I love this idea and really you could make them for any time of the year. Pining and thanks for sharing!
