This DIY Rainbow Fan Is Totally Cool

This DIY Rainbow Fan Is Totally Cool

Summer is coming. And what better way to cool off than to crank up the AC and walk around in the nude this DIY Rainbow Fan? This fan is cool because it keeps you cool and then it’s also cool like Fonzie is cool. You know, if Fonzie was into rainbows and maintaining a comfortable temperature. To make it, all you do is paint each of the three blades a primary color. Then, turn it on. Wheeee, it looks like a rainbow! Next, start talking into the breeze. OMG, you sound just like Darth Vader, let me try. La la la la Luuuuke! Luuuuke. I am your fatherrrr. NOOOOO! Man, this is great. I could do this all day. And let’s be honest — I probably will!

    I think this is so cute – it would be a fun activity to do with smaller kids!

    I tried this, but it didn’t work πŸ™

    This totally does not work.

  • Emily

    I just tried this and it definitely did not work. My husband’s totally gonna give me The Look when he sees that I’ve painted the fan. “Well, I saw this thing on the internet…”

    This doesn’t work, you’re an idiot.

    Unless you either have a really slow fan, or maybe the right type of camera (just guessing), this isn’t going to work. The colors will blend together though. If you’re using primary colors (red, blue, and yellow), you’ll probably just end up with a light purplish hue covering all the blades, not a full-scale color wheel.

    It works but only if you take a picture. To the normal eye, you wont be able to see it like the picture depicts.

    Very cool idea. But through trial and error, I have found that to truly see the full rainbow of colors better on a fan better results are achieved when you paint stripes onto each blade that go straight across each blade. Paint stripes on one blade that are blue and red, stripe the next blade with blue and yellow. Paint the next blade stripes that are just blue. Paint stripes that are just yellow next. Stripe paint the next yellow and red. And so on depending on how many blades your fan has. Remember,
    BLUE + RED = PURPLE
    BLUE IS A PRIMARY COLOR
    YELLOW + BLUE = GREEN
    RED + YELLOW = ORANGE
    YELLOW IS A PRIMARY COLOR
    RED IS A PRIMARY COLOR
    ANY COLOR + WHITE = A LIGHTER VERSION OF THAT SAME COLOR
    ANY COLOR + BLACK = A DARKER VERSION OF THAT SAME COLOR

    The picture I put into this comment was just an example of the horizontal stripes I had found to work best. =)
