17 Totally Hackable Anthropologie Holiday Decor Pieces

Anthropologie is a dreamy retail wonderland where everything is magical and out-of-this-world — including the prices sometimes. Fortunately, there are just as many hacks as there are “must-have” splurges so you can still get the glittering, boho holiday decoration you’re dreaming of. From confetti poppers to mini advent calendars, here are 17 Anthro hacks that you’ll love even more than the original… price tags.

1. DIY Glitter Bottle Brush Trees: Give Anthro’s bottle brush trees a glittery makeover in no time, and for way less than the original ($12- $24). Go for bright pastel glitter for an energetic boost of cheer, or keep it classy with the Anthro gold and copper color scheme. (via Delineate Your Dwelling)

2. Printable Advent Town DIY: Hack this magical advent town ($18) and hide little treats inside each mini house. You could even add some gold and twine garlands to get that Anthro glam. (via Brit + Co)

3. DIY Printable 3D Trees: For a totally simple Anthro hack to these paper trees ($20), string this printable version together in a garland or use them as a quick and easy centerpiece on the table. Choose your own colorful theme, but definitely don’t forget to dip the tops in gold. (via Oh Happy Day)

4. DIY Golden Animals: Add a few Anthro-inspired gilded creatures ($12) to your woodland holiday decorations. With this easy and inexpensive DIY, you can practically have a whole zoo at your table. (via Twinspiration)

5. Tassel Garland DIY: Anthro’s super cute tassel garland ($58) can totally be done for less money and with different colored yarn. Drape your finished garland on the tree or on the window, or even use it as gift wrap. (via The Merry Thought)

6. DIY Holiday Crackers: Anthro’s cheery crackers ($20) are a beautiful way help loved ones celebrate at your holiday party, but the price can certainly add up as your guest list grows. Make your own crackers so you can personalize the favors you put inside. (via Tuts+)

7. Striped Stocking DIY: While these knit stockings from Anthropologie ($48) look cozy enough to wear, it’s way more fun to spend on what goes inside. Embellish inexpensive stockings with faux fur, cool trim and other fun additions. Stocking decorating party, anyone? (via Brit + Co)

8. Gold String Lights DIY: Those dark green string lights are fine for the tree, but there are about a million other places for string lights where that green does not look so hot. DIY a set of gold string lights ($14 at Anthro) to make the mood a little more magical. (via The Merry Thought)

9. Snowball Garland DIY: Nothing says “Christmas” like a serious dose of the warm and fuzzies, and that includes fluffy pom pom garlands ($38) like this one from Anthropologie. For a more budget-friendly take, crochet your own fluffy poms. (via Kozy & Co)

10. DIY Felt Wreath: Felt is super easy to work with and comes in every color imaginable. To hack the Anthro felt wreath ($78), cut out different leaves from white felt and glue onto a wire hoop. Add flocking and a couple of little birds or baubles to finish it off. (via Fall for DIY)

11. Sweater Pillow DIY: This hack is a no-brainer. Turn last year’s favorite sweater into this year’s favorite knit throw pillow ($78 at Anthropologie). (via Make Scout)

12. DIY Polymer Clay Feather Ornaments: These original feather ornaments from Anthropologie aren’t available anymore, but that’s just fine, because the DIY clay version is super fun to make. (via Lines Across)

13. DIY Chalkboard Balloons: This hack couldn’t be easier. Personalize these Anthro-inspired party balloons ($21-$25) and practice your lettering at the same time. This would be the perfect place to pull out some holiday puns. (via Design Improvised)

14. DIY Marbled Paper: Anthropologie’s marble gift wrap ($14) is going to be king of classy paper this year. Rock the trend even harder by actually making your own marbled paper. Seriously, it’s so much fun you’ll want to marble every piece of paper you have. (via Brit + Co)

15. DIY Wood Gift Tags: Use balsa wood to totally win at gift giving this season. What could make your gift more special than a hand painted Anthropologie-inspired wood gift tag ($14) that they can use as an ornament after? (via Tell Love and Party)

16. DIY Confetti Balls: Probably the only thing better than a piñata is a mini piñata, or these festive surprise balls ($24) at Anthropologie. Just make sure you make enough of these guys to hand out at New Year’s too. (via Little Inspiration)

17. Dip Dyed DIY Ornaments: Give Anthro’s dipped ornaments ($38) a more modern look by using wooden balls and a palette of neons and gold. (via Say Yes)
