in the dressing room area of our pittsburgh store, look up and you will see these amazing chandeliers made out of deconstructed paper umbrellas dancing overhead. they were inspired by the amazing work of artist sylvia marius:

i was immediately intrigued by them and went down to ask our display team how they were made. they were kind enough to give me a little lesson on how to do it and let me use their supplies to make my own! it’s actually not hard, as with most projects it just takes a little time and patience.

IMG_2975

IMG_2982

what you need:

a paper umbrella- you can find these in chinatown or online at amazon or party supply stores. don’t worry about the design or quality of the umbrella because you’re going to cut it up!

you’ll also need some cord or heavier string, thread, beads and scissors. i used some strips of fabric our display team had lying around as well, but just for decorative purposes.

our display team had some really pretty beads they let me use, but you can find beads at any craft or art supply store.

3

start by cutting the paper out from between all the framing – make sure not to cut the white string part! also our team, and i, opted to leave some of the paper on the frame because we like the way it looks and it gives the chandelier some color. i was able to pretty much just tear the paper right off, this part was easy.

4

for the next step, measure out pieces of string to reach from the end of one spoke to the end of the umbrella handle – i tied some of the fabric strips just below where i was attaching the string so it wouldn’t slip down – you could also tape it into place.

IMG_3006

IMG_3012

it’s ok if the spokes curve a little bit too – i actually liked how it looked that way. i also wrapped the entire handle in fabric strips… which i probably should have done before tying all the string on… ;)

IMG_3019

now its time to start stringing beads! to leave spaces of empty string in between beads, just knot the thread around a bead and continue.

7

tie the strands of beads right to the spokes of the chandelier at random intervals.

8

and you’re done! hang the chandelier somewhere that you can admire it, and enjoy :)

even though our stores all get the same seasonal displays, there are always little touches our fp girls put into each one to make it unique. our new pittsburgh free people looks incredible, right down the tiny little details…

welcome to steel city!

i love all the oddly-angled beams. as for the scarves, our display team dyed and hand-panted each one themselves!

i adore this wall! it has such a great vintage, fifties feel.

and perhaps my favorite part, this suitcase filled with trinkets is amazing! i would love to do this as a way of commemorating a special trip…take the suitcase you used on the trip and adorn it with decorations and trinkets from your travels!

Post image for spring in our stores!

i mentioned last week that we opened two new stores – one in houston and one in pittsburgh. they both debuted our new spring displays, making them a bright and inviting space beckoning for people to step out of the cold and inside their doors. our display team blows me away every time – this spring’s combination of strips of fabric in cheerful easter-egg shades, parasols and colorfully patch-worked suitcases is like a warm burst of sunshine for the soul.

here are some images from houston:

the scarves sewn together remind me of prayer flags!

this suitcase “sculpture” is beyond amazing…the suitcases are covered with fabric and dripping with trinkets that the free people girl has picked up on her travels.

Post image for snow day valentines

i hear chicago had quite the snowstorm yesterday…one of our fp girls sent along these great photos and said she and her roommate, who also works for fp, were snowed in with drifts up past the windowsills and no shovel – the fp store was even closed!

she wrote that they have a rule with every catalog: save one to cut up, and one to keep (i do the same thing girls!). so, being stuck at home, she decided to use old catalogs to make valentines! love this idea, might have to steal it…

I like your structure, the truth that your webpage is actually a tad bit distinctive makes it so useful, I get completely fed up of viewing the identical stuff just about the entire time. I’ve I just found this site by you Thanks a lot.

one of our fp girls out on the west coast sent me these adorable photos that i had to share…

our so-cal DVM had a day at her daughter’s school called “occupation celebration” where she talked to the kids about her awesome job at FP  – she dressed up the girls like mannequins and chatted all about being a district visual manager – how cute?!

and this is claude, a new pup belonging to our visual manager on the west coast! above is claude as an itty bitty pup, and here is is on his first fp store visit, in santa monica:
