Ceiling Fan Re-Do!

For my birthday this year my awesome husband bought me a mini ceiling fan for my craft room/office. Before it was installed I decided I would spruce it up a bit with some fabric and Mod Podge.

I still have a ton of this damask fabric leftover from when I did the window treatments so I figured I would have everything match.

Materials Needed:
Mod Podge (MP)
X-acto knife
Paint Brush

First, I laid out the blades and traced the outline onto the fabric. Then I put a thin layer of MP down on the blade and laid the fabric on top. I set them aside to dry for a couple of hours. I then followed with 3 coats of MP on top of the fabric to seal it. After everything was dry I used the x-acto knife to make the holes for the screws in the fabric and clean up the edges.
Then I installed the hardware and had it installed!
I love my present!

And I made a matching light switch plate as well!
