Future senorita fans

So my daughter keeps talking about wanting a senorita party for her 8th birthday party where her friends can dance to cha-cha , make fans, and eat tacos. I told her no on the fans because of expense... Well well well... Garage sale 14 fans for a $1.
Now here is where I need your help... Outside of hot glue what should I plan to use as adhesive?

You can "try" tacky glue-but if you're talking fast adhesive and no fumes (like E600) then I think hot glue is your option.

Quoting mommytohuddy:

could you use the adhesive glue dots from the scrapbooking section? It might reduce mess and those things really hold on! I used them attach fabric to glass bottles for my wedding reception.

That is what I mentioned to my friend.  Do you think they would be strong enough to hold on silk floral buds?

 

Loctite super glue... can that glue fingers?  probably not a good idea for 8 year olds.. LOL    I think I will spray paint them prior to the party.  The lady said she planned to make "country craft" jack-o-lanterns out of them originally.    I am sure you all will see more about these fans in September/October.

Personally-I'd have my doubts on those glue dots-I guess it depends on strength-but I had a project that used some and couldn't even keep fun foam to fun foam-I don't think it would hold the weight of the flowers-and silk can be a PITA to add to things at time.

Just my opinion...

Cute display :)

Though fabric is still lighter than silk flowers and bamboo in general is tough to get things to hold...

Quoting mommytohuddy:

I think these were the ones I used and they held up just fine.

This is the project that I used them on.
