Holiday Inspiration {Anthropologie}

This quarter in school I’ve interned at Anthropologie’s Bock 37 location in their visual display department. As my internship comes to a close and I get ready for my class presentation I’ve been looking over the images of the work I helped with and can’t get over how visually inspirational the company is. I’ve found that now I’ll never throw anything away because you can make art out of anything. The pictures below are of the fall windows we just took down which were made out of pizza circles, unbelievable! They were all folded and painted by my fabulous supervisor and the other intern, and the hand crafted work makes it really special.

The next pictures are from my favorite display, when you walk into the store you are greeted with these earthy-meet-modern tree stumps which were made out of chicken wire and cardboard. They come up with the most creative uses for everyday items that I want to craft when I get home from work!

Finally, these last photos are of the candles I melted to look “Phantom-of-the-Opera-like” and are a great way to decorate for the holidays. To do this at home stick some cheap candle sticks in holders or a vase of sand to keep them in place and light them all. While they are burning take one candle and hold it over each candle one by one, this will melt both candles and create dramatic wax drippings.

Have any inspirational holiday ideas? Leave a comment, I would love to read them!
