DIY Colorful Fans

This DIY Rainbow Fan is a Great Project for the Kids at Springtime

— April 11, 2013 — Life-Stages
This DIY rainbow fan is a great project to keep the kids creative while keeping cool now that spring is here.

Sometimes it's just the simplest ideas that are the most compelling, and this rainbow fan is no exception. Anyone can do it. The project is as simple as simply removing the cover on a standard room fan, and painting each blade a different color. For those looking for a bigger challenge or are more visually creative, you could paint patterns and combine colors within each blade. Once the rainbow fan is turned on, it not only cools the room, but creates a fascinating pinwheel effect. Just make sure the paint is dry before you turn the rainbow fan on, lest you wish to clean paint drops off your face and walls.
Trend Themes
1. DIY Fan Projects - Businesses can offer DIY projects for customers to upgrade their standard fans using easily accessible materials.
2. Customization and Personalization - Industries should create customizability and personalization options for their products to cater to customers' desire to make ordinary items unique.
3. Rainbow-centered Designs - Incorporating rainbow hues into designs, whether in products or branding, will attract customers who are looking for playful, colorful items that stand out from the rest.
Industry Implications
1. Home Improvement - The home improvement industry can offer paint or decal accessories that cater to the customer's desire for personalized and colorful fan designs.
2. Arts and Crafts - Arts and crafts stores can provide DIY fan kits that enable their customers to express their creativity and make their fans unique.
3. Interior Design - Interior designers can create colorful fan designs or offer consulting services to help customers add color and vibrancy to their living spaces with simple DIY projects like the rainbow fan.
