Accordion Paper Decoration

Add a splash of color and texture to your walls!


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape


  1. Accordion fold a piece of paper on the short side into half inch pleats
  2. Cut the piece of paper in half on the short side so you can tape together the pleats into one long strip.
  3. Make sure the pleats line up, trim if necessary
  4. Tape together pairs on one side of the pleats to gather the pleats into a fan shape.
  5. Repeat, taping together taped pairs to hold the shape.
  6. If the paper is curling towards one side, flip the fan over and tape together pairs of pleats on the other side to balance out the fan.
  7. Optionally, tape the bottom together to hold the fan more open or closed.
