Hanging Fabric from Ceiling

So for my fortune teller room which will be in our family room, I want to just hand various fabrics from the ceiling to give the look of being in an old school fortune teller tent. Without trying to put my vision into words (and I could not find a photo that really did the trick either), what's the best way to attach thin fabric to ceiling? I will be using a mix of fabric materials and sizes. For this room, I definitely want to use fabric and not paper or tablecloth rolls.

Has anyone done this and had success with them staying and also not leaving permanent evidence? It's a large ceiling space that I would be covering

Hey, have you started on your ceiling yet? I just got the idea to do a fortune teller room last week, so now I'm googling and Pinteresting like crazy haha. I'm going to buy a bunch of fabric from Walmart. I was looking online and they're selling costume satin for $5.91 per 3 yards.

Has anyone done this in a room with a ceiling fan? Mine is just your standard white ceiling fan and definitely doesn't go with the fortune teller look, so I'm debating how I could cover the blades. I might be able to pin the fabric to the ceiling between the blades and have it kind of drape under them.

I'm also debating on what to do with the light in the fan. We usually replace a lot of the lights in the house with red or black lights, but I don't think that's the look I want for this. I was thinking putting a battery operated LED in the light cover (and using that instead of the bulb) would look cool. We did that in our kitchen one year with those flashing ice cube lights and it looked really cool.
