Supplies

  • 5 fan blade brackets for petals
  • Recessed lighting trim
  • 2-3 fan blade brackets for leaves
  • Metal fan pole
  • Pencil
  • Electric drill
  • Safety glasses
  • Vice
  • Spray paint
  • Spray paint sealer
  • 10-15 screws (Screws will vary in length and amount needed dependent on type of fan blade bracket and metal fan pole.)

Instructions

  1. After gathering materials, decide where you want the petals and leaves to be on the recessed lighting trim and metal fan pole. Using one bracket as a guide, mark with a pencil where you need to drill holes for the brackets to be attached in both the lighting trim and the metal pole. Repeat five times or number of petals and leaves you have. Note: You will need to drill an additional whole in both the metal pole and the lighting trim in order to attach the two pieces together.
  2. Use a vice to secure the metal fan pole and lighting trim. Wearing safety glasses, drill holes in the marks you made earlier. Use a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screws you will be using. (Ensures the screws are screwed in snugly.)
  3. Spray paint your parts how you choose. Let dry for one hour.
  4. Spray a coat of spray paint sealer on all your parts. Let dry for one hour.
  5. Attach fan blade brackets to lighting trim using screws.
