We adore Anthropologie, but we’re bougie on a budget if you catch our drift, so going on an Anthro shopping spree isn’t exactly in the cards for us. But there are a ton of ways you can add some Anthropologie flair to your home without having to drop big bucks. And if you’re starting to worry because maybe DIYs aren’t always your thing, don’t even sweat it! These DIY projects are not only budget-friendly but they’re also fun and easy to make! (We promise.) Let’s take a look.
Anthropologie Knock-Off 3-D Graphic Planter
We are firm believers that a person can never have too many planters and one that you made yourself is infinitely more special. Plus, you totally get bragging rights when you have guests over. All you need to create this planter is a planter, air dry clay, mini alphabet cookie cutters, a rolling pin, your spray paint color of choice, and a glue gun. Aside from ‘Growing Pains’, we also love “Succ It”, “I Will Survive”, and “You Grow Girl”. You can see the full instructions here.
Anthropologie Style Oyster Shell Trinket Dish
We are over the moon in love with these oyster shell trinket dishes, and we’re guessing that your first question is ‘where exactly does one find oyster shells?’ and to that, we say Amazon, of course. Aside from oyster shells, you’ll need some gloss Mod Podge, printed napkins (make sure you nab ones that you LOVE because these will be the designs on your dish!), and some gold paint for the edges (or whatever color you like!) These are totally customizable pieces and trinket dishes are not only great to have around your own house for jewelry and wedding rings and such, but these trinket dishes make wonderful gifts!

Anthropologie Inspired Textured Pillow
Throw pillows can totally transform your space, but if you’ve ever been shopping for throw pillows you know that much like rugs, they’re ridiculously expensive. And we totally get that there are other things you would rather throw your hard-earned money at. Luckily with a couple of Dollar Tree rugs, various colors and textures of yarn (all your choice!), thread, scissors, stuffing, and a yarn needle. These pillows are simple to make and they’re way more cost-efficient than buying them, plus you never have to “settle” for color palettes, you’re in charge of everything.
