I am getting married in the winter and am using crystals for my winter wonderland. I really want to make the crystal trees for the centerpieces but have no idea what tree works best or anything else for that matter. I am a total diy bride and want to do this with my friends and family (my mom and I are making my dress).
Any help will be appreciated as well as pictures of centerpiece ideas similar to mine and other crystal theme decorations. Thanks Bees!

I think these are all curly willow branches (more affordable than any other branches in my area but I’m not sure how that goes anywhere else). The frost look is fake snow or you can spray paint them white? I love the idea of crystals with snowflakes and icicles very winter romance! Add a little light inside the vase to give it a winter glow.
I got my tall vase at Michaels for $7.50 with a coupon… I just had all my family use a coupon too and we all went in twice lol… it was a little annoying but we saved a ton of money because they were originally $20 each.

A lot of people use the manzanita branches as the “wishing trees,” etc. I’m not sure how to make the hanging crystals, but there’s a bee in the classifieds section, Italianbride (? I think?) that tends to sell them rather inexpensively. Best of luck!

I’m in the process of putting mine together. For beads I bought a crystal curtain and have been cutting it to length. It was way cheaper the.Buying the crystal strings or stands of them!

Thank you ladies!
@HappilyEverAfter54: those are beautiful. I can’t wait to make my own!
I just love the look of the branches. I plan on using irridecent crystals with purple and orange ends. Hopefully this will turn out wonderful
