I feel like it is top heavy – is there anything you can do to widen the base?

Those branches are way too tall for that tiny little vase.

I agree with previous posters, the branches are too tall.

I agree with the general consensus. Im not sure where you live, but mismatch vases may be an option. You can buy a bunch for cheap at a local antique/thrift store/ebay/craigslist. Ikea also has nice vases and centerpieces on the cheap:http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/86933500/

Good luck!

Hey Nellop,

I love banches in my livingroom too. But I t think you should go with the more taller vase. I have one like this at home:

I love how it looks. Its so basic but a good decoration. You can get a bigger and more bulge. Bulge vases are great!! And it would look perfect w/ your long bances. And I think you should put this big vase a good open corner.. 

You may be fine with your vase, then for the decoration part, found smth like that:

But again the good thing in this style; vase is taller than the banches. The smaller banches looks the more elegant. You may ampulate the bances. Plus, it could be better if you remove the green things. It isn’t look good.

Hope it helps! Take it easy!

I think the braches are way too tall. I’m not really a fan of branch centerpeices by themselves I always think they look better if mixed in with flowers or something.

I think that you are off to a good start just needs some adjustments…..maybe add some flowers, and shorten the branches

I really like the rocks in the vase! What about adding a bit of flowers to it ? Maybe like this?

Maybe adding some visual interest around the base as well like you mentioned with candles or petals as well!

@Nellop:  While I like the concept you have going on, I agree with PP that it’s too tall and thick for that teeny little vase/glass.  I would either trim down the branches or opt for a wider, taller vase.  Try Dollar Tree online.  I was able to get cases of vases for $1 (American) each.  Keep experimenting…you’ll figure it out 🙂

Maybe shorten the branches and add a few tissue paper poms/flowers in your colors? Super cute idea!

Do you Drink wine? if so you could get a large bottle of wine and then cut the top off (many DIY options on how to do this off the internet). If your having an engagement party or bridal party you could use wine bottles from those parties…. Hope this helps

I’m not really sure how you feel about it, but if you have 2 long cans, you can saw the bottom out of one of them, glue them together, wrap in twine, and use that as a vase. I totally saw it on pinterest and that’s what I’m doing, since vases are too expensive for me. I think they used quick oats cans
