This is really obvious but how do you do this. I bought the girls and myelf the collapsible hand fans and I want to put mine on the wall rather than use it. How do you do this? I have no idea apart from blu-tac and that probably won't work due to the weight.

I have fans all over my bedroom wall and all I did was nail small nails and slid the handle in so the nails are at the top of the handle - bottom of the fan shape.

Or if the fan has bamboo slats or holes I nail a small nail in there to hold them. Its mainly a balancing thing.....
I have had them up for years and none have ruined.

I hope this helps a bit (its hard to explain)

Hugs, Heather

yeah, i've done pretty much the same thing as heather, except instead of using nails i just used pins - you know those tiny pins which dont have a ball on the end, they just have a tiny metal flat part? lol, sorry if you have noooo idea what i'm on about. anyway, what i was trying to say was that you dont have to bash giant holes in your wall; fans are really pretty light and pins will hold them up (mine too have been up for a few years), but you dont have to poke holes in your fan, it really is just a balancing act.

Thanks for this info. I was way off. My friends parnts when I was small had a huge wooden fan on their wall with some kind of wooden mounting device. I was thinking a smaller version of this.
