I love Anthropologie, but hate their ridiculously high prices. While I wish I could buy every article of clothing, accessory and home decoration piece within Anthropologie’s beautifully decorated walls, their merchandise is often outside my desired price range. I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only fashion-loving girl who feels this way! Fortunately for us all, there are multiple tutorials that teach how to re-create many of Anthropologie’s adorable products at just a fraction of the cost.
If you love fashion and crafting, this is going to make your day. The bracelet in the above photo is just one of many DIY projects inspired by Anthropologie products, the instructions for which can be found at Flamingo Toes. I think the knock-off version is even more adorable than the original, and would definitely give this tutorial a try! Who knew that so much of Anthropologie’s merchandise could be so easily duplicated? Continue reading for more DIY projects inspired by one of my favorite stores. Personally, I’m thrilled that I can continue to dress in this style without breaking the bank.
