I ordered these silk fans from efavormart for my bridesmaids to carry as an alternative to flowers.. I love them in the picture except when I received them, they are so transparent!! Any ideas or suggestions of what I can do to make them look better? I thought of adding ribbon to it but they are so narrow its hard to do that… Any ideas are welcome

@bells: my suggestion would be find a glitter to match, not a course type as it will look cheesy. I would look for one that’s finer than sugar. OR if you can’t find one to match, I have used iridescent glitter (not white, more like pearlized).
Spray the fan with an adhesive spray glue and dust with glitter.
Maybe add a few dainty ribbon roses to hot glue on the fan part too. I would add some type of greens and fan it out on the cream center part. Oh you could have so much fun with this. Add some baby’s breath, or stephanotis (little white flowers, not sure on spelling).
Add some sheer thin ribbons with wire edge for tails. Glue a few little crystals on the tails.
Google “fan bouquets”, there are so many beautiful ones out there to give ideas.
I’m a florist myself and have done a lot of work with arranging. I’ve found just going to my fave craft store Hobby Lobby can give me inspiration. Take the fan to your fave craft shop and find a knowledgeable sales person for some ideas too.
Hopefully this helps.
