Recently our ceiling fan went out in our living room and after replacing it I told my husband DO NOT throw those blades away! I didn't know what I could do with them but I knew something would come to me. I googled crafts from fan blades and all I could find were giant dragonflies made from them for outdoor decorations and I knew I didn't want anything like that.
So - this is what I came up with and I love it!
I spray painted with chalkboard paint.
I ran ribbon through the holes so they would be hung on the wall. Then I embellished!
Here is the results of one:
This one hangs in my office at work - which happens to be a school.
