Items needed to create this crystal tree centerpiece:

Silver tree branches
12 inch x 4 inch cylinder vase
Teal flowers
15 strands of crystals
Silver bling ribbon
Teal satin ribbon
Dazzler rocks
White Led floralyte
Mirror
Dashes Oasis Adhesive

Step 1

Attach ribbons to vase. First, attach the teal satin ribbon with double-sided adhesive tape (dashes are great!). Then, attach the silver bling ribbon below the teal ribbon.

Step 2

Make sure vase is empty. Turn on Led light and place in the middle, bottom of the vase. These floralytes usually give a strong light for 8-10 hrs. Add the dazzler rocks to the vase to fill to the bottom of the silver bling ribbon.

Step 3

Start adding the silver branches to the vase angling the bottom of the branch in a diagonal direction into the rocks. See how the tree comes together in the photos below (2 branches, then 4, 7 and so on).

Step 4

Add the flowers. These flowers were pulled off a branch/stem of flowers. You can do this in any color and have the same effect. If pulled off a stem of flowers, the flowers will have a whole in the middle which is where you slide the flower on to the branch. Scatter throughout for the best effect. This tree has 35 flowers but you can certainly do more or less for your desired look!

Step 5

Add the crystals. The crystal strands can be any length but I typically keep them to about 10 crystals per strand. Hang the metal piece on the branches. When adding the crystals, skip around adding some up high and some in the middle and low. I suggest using around 15 strands.

Step 6

Place on mirror and admire the beautiful tree. There are MANY, MANY ways to create a fantastic crystal tree; different colored branches, different types and colors of flowers, bushels of flowers at the base, or hanging pearls instead of crystals. The options are limitless – how great are these crystal tree centerpieces!
