Overview:

We wanted to have a nice wedding with 125-135 guests on a $14,000 max budget, so we had to plan and do most it ourselves. I spent less than 600 total on wedding flowers and centerpieces. This is a recreation of how I made my own manzanita crystal tree

Step 1: Materials Used

Manzanita branches

Basic Craft Materials:Scissors, Tape, Adhesives E600 is what I use, hot glue Wire

Embellishments:Feathers - RIbbon Vases - Check thrift stores, dollar stores or online to save money \

Garland

FLowers Fresh or fake

Fill- water beads, glass pieces, or fiber fill Water submersible led light optional

Optional Lights String and or water submergable

Step 2: Embellish the Manzanita Branches

Add decorations to the manzanita branches such as strings of garland, led string lights, flowers, and more.

Most things can be draped securely over the branches. For items such as the flower heads use hot glue to secure them to branches.

Step 3: Secure Branches in Vases

Place your finished branches inside the vase you like. Once inside pour sand, glass beads, or small stones into the vase to secure the branches in place.

Step 4: Final Results

<p>This is so pretty! The light really makes the crystals look like magic!</p>
