DIY Home Décor Ideas with Chinese Paper Fans that Brings Feng Shui

Featured on this page are mainly folding paper fans with a painting or design for decoration. It is like having a painting or a printed art piece on a folding fan rather than a rectangular canvas. Oriental folding ones have been popular for their artistic value. They are stylish and will make a difference to your home. Have you ever admired a few? Or perhaps you are looking for an oriental touch for your home? Something nice to decorate the wall? I might just have the right idea for you. Take some time to look at these works of art. Here I will showcase a selection of Chinese, Japanese and Korean styles in different colors and sizes. The themes vary from blossoms, scenery, auspicious animals like dragon, fish, bird, horse, crane to portraits like geisha. Some are hand-painted and you can also get a large custom made folding paper fan. I hope you will find one or more to decorate any theme you already have or have in mind.


Decorate Your Home with a 60" Oriental Style Folding Wall Fan for Prosperity

This folding wall fan design is "Prosperity" and it is the most joyous color. This auspicious theme and the vibrant colors will make a great center piece for your sitting room. A Chinese friend of mine received one that is very similar to this as a gift and she was absolutely happy with it. When the home is decorated with an absolutely beautiful Chinese fan, you feel great and good things will come your way.

      Fans are a bit like adding tiny windows into other places, garden scenes, fields of blossoms, butterfly gardens, etc. Little windows you can open and close to look into anywhere you like. I love fans and they would make a fabulous gift for anyone. They are utilitarian art. :-) They are so easy to incorporate into a design plan anyone can utilize them. Great selection here for decorative paper fans!! I saw several I really love.
