Learn how to make White Christmas Sisters feathered fans just like they use in the movie!
Today I’m joining The Crafting Chicks as a part of their AWESOME Christmas Traditions series. I’ve really been loving it so many great recipes, projects, and activities to do with the family. Plus those crafting chicks are pure gems. Some of the nicest girls around!
I am sharing my family’s love for the classic movie White Christmas and no it’s not the same movie as Holiday Inn. If you haven’t seen White Christmas it’s this great musical with tons of dancing and the perfect amount of romance and good happy feelings. Definitely check it out.
White Christmas Sisters Fan Dance
To try and pass down the obsession to the nieces I made these really easy Sisters Feathered Fans. In the movie there is this famous scene where the two sister characters dance with big blue feathered fans and to help them out the to male characters pretend to be them and it’s awesome and hilarious.
And just for a bit of extra fun how about a little performance from the nieces :)

What You Need to Make Sisters Fans
This is one of those tutorials that you can totally make what you have work. I used a cheap fan and I looked everywhere for blue feathers but didn’t find a pack of only blue.
Instead I ended up going with a blue boa I found at the craft store and actually that worked better than I could have imagined and now in hindsight I think loose feathers would have been really annoying.
Instructions for DIY White Christmas Sister Fans
- Cut the boa in half.
- Open up one fan so it is fulling expanded.
- Apply glue to the fan in a wide zig zag pattern and layer the boa on top and gently press.
- Repeat for the second fan.
