A couple of weeks ago, I spent the afternoon at Anthropologie in Bellevue WA. Anthropologie hosted a workshop to make two crafting projects for their upcoming holiday window display. Doesn’t this sound lovely?

Workshop Set Up

As soon as I entered the store, this beautiful table was one of the first things you saw. All materials were nicely set up for us, along with light snacks and sweets.

The workshop consisted of two crafts. The first was to make golden branches, adorned with a wire and small bells.

Tutorial for Gold Branches

I chose to participate in the golden branches craft. These were fairly easy to make. First I applied glue to one branch. Then I tore off a page of golden foil and wrapped it around the branch. Once I had enough gold material on the branch, I used a foam brush to make sure the gold foil was properly set. Finally, I chose two gold bells and wire to wrap around the branch.

 

Gold Branches Ready for Display

The fruit of our labors! The branches will be used to set up a display evoking the woods and a few birds perched on the branches.

 

All Good Things Come to an End

I can’t wait to go back to Anthropologie to see how the final display turned out. All the branches should have lovely birds and silver feathers. I will post a photo of the final display very soon!
