Anthropologie Felt Leaf Garland

Store Window with Cuckoo Clocks

These handmade pinecones were hanging over a bed

I don't know about you, but  I love walking through Anthropologie.  I love the creativity that oozes all around you as you take it all in.  Do you remember the season they did all the paper sculptures?  It was amazing.

So, while finishing up my Christmas shopping, I had to visit once again.  This time I really looked at the seasonal decorations and studied them a little.  I fell in love with this sweet felt leaf garland on top of an armoire and quickly took a picture with my phone.

It gave me the idea that I'd might copy it for a gift and that's exactly what I did.  Of course, I made two 6' foot garlands a day before Christmas....auugh, my cutting hand.  A very sweet sales lady in Joann's was asking me what I was doing and I showed her the picture...she never heard of Anthropologie before.  She was enthusiastic though and help me find some pompoms and advised a good scissor.

This is one for myself.  I think I'm at the end of my holiday projects, but who knows maybe I'll copy their chandelier made out of book covers next?

I love going into Anthopologie and I always get inspired! This is a great Felt Leaf Garland...I'm going to try to remember to make one for next Christmas...or maybe Fall!

Gorgeous. I've never been to the store, just oogled it online. Pathetic. I must make that a goal for the New Year. I just know it's my kind of store...once I win the lottery;-0

So glad to have me you this year through blogland. Thanks for all the smiles and's to 2011! xo

so inspiring! I think I'll have to do a little "arm-chair" browsing at Anthropologie's on-line store!

Blessings on your new year!

Beautiful work, Diana. Just recently during our winter trip I went into an Anthropologie store for the very first time in my life. I was blown away, what a treasure.
