Anthropologie stores are known for their fantastic windows and environments — especially around holiday time. Instead of needlessly cutting down trees, the stores make their own handmade interpretations, or offer live trees used for display to customers for planting. Here they share some of their creative DIY projects with Apartment Therapy readers.From Anthropologie on their holiday displays:
"Customers will be drawn into a wintery world of woodland creatures, cuckoo clocks and pine forests comprised of live and handmade trees. Recycled materials such as coffee stirrers, paper plates and twist ties will be used to render these narratives within clever displays. Anthropologie's artists often partner with small local businesses to collect materials for their displays, many of which use repurposed materials like fabric pieces that would otherwise go to waste."
See if you can scrounge up simple materials around your own home to upcycle into one of these unique decorative tree styles, which have careful step-by-step instructions to follow.
