did you know i moonlight as a window display designer when i’m not a stay-at-home mom? actually, its more like daylighting, since its always in the day ;)
our school opened a thrift store 1 year ago and i have spent a lot of time investing in it. my official position there is as a business consultant and display lead. i get to share my experience of running a business and play with decorating various spaces – its pretty great!
i wanted the windows for november to hint at fall, but not be overwhelmingly obvious. i added deep pinks and plums to help with that.
i’ve got to figure out some time of day that i don’t get a horrible reflection off those huge windows! i had a handful of people ask me on instagram how i made the hanging display, so i thought i would share it here.
its been a long time since i bought a bunch of fabric – it was really fun to pull these colors together! i bought half a yard of each of these colors.
i had been setting aside these giant embroidery hoops (?) at the thrift store, then grabbed some empty frames as well.
i cut each of the half yards into 1″ strips
then i tied the strips end to end then wrapped the frames. also, i separated the hoops so i had 2 to use, rather than one.
i just tied the first end of each strip to the frame and when i finished i either tied the other end to the frame or taped it against the frame – super easy!
above are most of the other window displays i’ve done over the last year – i’m bummed i forgot to photograph a couple!
