Make it: Anthropologie Inspired Christmas Decorations


Anthropologie is one of my absolute favourite places to visit, both in-store and online. I always love flicking through their mailshots and like most of you, wish I could afford to buy everything! However just occasionally I see things and think, 'Whoa I could totally make that for half the price' and have the fun of making it myself along the way. This years Christmas decoration collection was the perfect example and I thought I would share what I ended up making.

Pom Pom Wreath
I absolutely love this pompom wreath, I love the textures and the soft colours but I could not justify the price tag! I used a mixture of soft wools and my trusty Clover pompom maker to recreate this lovely door wreath for my own home. I simply hot glued the pompoms I made onto a cardboard ring I cut from a box and hung it with some sparkly ribbon. 


Monogram decorations
How beautiful are these beaded initial decorations, I love them, but not all the colours were to my taste so I used my felt and bead stash to recreate the letters I wanted in the colours that matched my scheme. I simply drew and cut out the letters from felt then stitched around with embroidery thread before stuffing them to make them rounded. To embellish I just jumped into my bead boxes and used some yummy bugle beads and sparkles. You could easily replace this step with some glue if you didn't want to sew all the beads in place.



Pom Pom garland
This garland was a no brainer, I just used the leftover pompoms from my wreath and joined them together to make a garland to string in my tree, or maybe on our stairway? 

Do you have any favourite Anthropologie 'hacks' or inspired tutorials? If you do, link them up in the comments so we can all go and take a look and get inspired.

Have a lovely weekend

    1. Hi Annie,
      Sorry that link was broken, I have fixed it now, but it was only a link to some chunky wools similar to the ones I used. I believe it was about 6-7 balls of different chunky, super chunky and snowflake style wool/yarns that I used, each ball made 3-4 pompoms. I used some from my stash and bought a few balls at my local store, the cheapest I could find in the right colours for the project. If you are in the UK Surdar snuggle snowflake would be a good type of wool to look for and Surdar Click Chunky, or Rico classic chunky. www.Woolwearhouse.co.uk is a great place to look for affordable yarns for projects like these. Hope that is of more help to you. Do let us know if you recreate this project by tagging us on social media.
