Wavy Fan Handles

Wedding ceremony program production has begun.

Since it's an outdoor wedding, we're turning them into fans. At first, I searched JoAnn's Fabrics and Michael's for tongue depressors, but they didn't seem quite long enough. I thought about trying to beg Home Depot or Lowe's for paint stirrers, but the thought of panhandling + spray painting just didn't seem worth it.

Luckily, a quick Google search (oh, bless you, god of convenience) for "wooden fan handles" led me to multiple sites that sell "wavy fan handles." And they're cheap, too!

One site (the one from which the picture came) even gave me a cool tutorial on how to make a fan with cardstock and the wavy fan handles.

Fortunately, we already have tons of cardstock left over from our teaching days and we're printing them at home. That just leaves the wavy fan handles (I love saying that phrase), which cost $19 ($10 of which was shipping and handling).
