You can use any container that you want- you just top the plaster of paris with moss so the top of the container looks nice.

You can fill up the container with plaster of paris, wait until it is almost set, then just insert the branch into the top 6″ or so of the plaster of paris. The weight of the base will stabilize the tall centerpiece.

Hi there,

I LOVE those vases! Where did you get them?

@MGorsh:  I’m also doing crystal manzanita trees. Different craft websites i’ve looked at have suggested using colored sand, glass pebbles or crushed glass if using a vase. I’m using 20″ tall vases (which is the recommended height) with colored sand to stabilize the branches. Where did you get your supplies (crystals, trees, etc.) from?
