The smaller bees were created from prints sent by the company - they were cut out and glued together to make them 3D. The larger, more detailed bees were hand-made from crepe paper and wire.
The home pantry department got a spring update to reflect a lush greenhouse. Paper leaves of various varieties were added to the wall and cabinets, accented by vintage windows.
The greenhouse leaves also carried over to the front of store wall, and were later added to the front platform for a dramatic effect.
The greenhouse concept was relocated and additional leaves were applied to a hutch to add dimension in the space.
The paper leaves were sent pre-cut, but were hand dyed and wired in-house. Each type of leaf received a unique, multi-step dye treatment.
The flower stems were created by wrapping crepe paper around hanging wire.
Flower buds were molded from styrofoam and crepe paper. Crepe paper petals were folded and spray painted, then stretched and molded into flowers.
The birds were temporarily hung in the front of store as an entry piece, and were later moved to watch over the accessories department.
The birds were later transitioned into a wall-based display.
The tropical leaves were created by dying sheets of vellum paper and allowing the dye to pool to create a unique pattern. The leaves were then cut and wired to the bird's hoops.
The bodies of the birds were formed from tissue and tape, then covered in hand-cut, painted, and stamped leaves.
Once the birds were covered, they were fixed to the leaves for extra security.
