How to Repurpose Ceiling Fan Blades:

What You Need

  • Ceiling fan blade
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon
  • Sandpaper (optional)
  • Chalk/chalk marker
  • Wall hook

What to Do

  1. If the ceiling blade is rough or overly dirty, lightly sand the surface with sandpaper.
  2. Buy chalkboard paint at your local craft store. Paint the blade with a few coats and let it dry for a couple of hours.
