When Cristalier Designer #9 faced the challenge to create a Modern Holiday Crystal Tree in one hour or less, the first thing that came to mind was...
 "Do I have to use Red & Green?"
 
Not these days! Holiday trees can come in sorts of shapes, sizes and colors.

Designer 9
 
Inspiration:
I love the holidays, always have, but times are changing and so are styles. I also love modern design. The clean lines, monochromatic colors; it all works for me. So I thought why can't our crystal trees be used instead of the traditional holiday tree? I think this concept works especially well for office or retail stores where it can be appreciated by everyone?
 
Biggest Challenge:
Knowing when to stop adding crystal strands of garland. In modern or contempo design, it is important to keep things simple, to let each item speak for itself.
  
Favorite Feature:
The strands, they were from our acrylic line. They have a flair for style on their own. I like the way they hang and they do sparkle.
  
Alternate Ideas:
This is an ultimate budget tree for any occasion. While I chose acrylic, you could use glass or lead strands for even more sparkle or shine. Instead of balls, perhaps add interesting, yet odd shaped ornaments would really bring added style. 
  
Final thoughts:
 I think every element works well together. The metal tree is a work of art in itself. Adding the shine and shimmer of the strands adds dimension and brilliance. Beautiful round metallic balls softens the contrasts. Together this tree is simply elegant!
Be patient! It's worth the wait

Metal Tree Color: I wanted the ivory metal tree because I felt it gave me a blank canvas to work with. I checked for silver spray paint but there wasn't any available. If there had been, I would have lightly sprayed select faux branches silver for a highlighted effect and added shimmer.
 
Tree Size: I used the 5 foot tall one. When using this size there is plenty of room available under your crystal strands to place cards, gifts, food, drinks, name cards or anything else you may need.  

Crystal Type: I like the acrylic strands. They are a great economical choice for projects.

Crystal Count: I used 4 clear and 5 dark blue acrylic strands seperated into different lengths. I always hang them at their original 36" length and then see where the strand looks like it should end.  It only takes about 2 seconds to take apart a strand and it gives you ability to customize your lengths.
 
Accessories: There was 1 box of 12 large glass ornaments. They had 4 balls in three colors. One was already cracked and then I dropped one, breaking it, so I just ended up using the rest.
 
Tree Base: I left it bare. It is really a nice base on its own, so why cover it up or try to hide it? This way you can have plenty of room to add whatever you want to yor table.


Designer Note:
 
My tree was the fastest tree designed this year. I had my artificial manzanita tree, out of the box, set up and adjusted to the way I wanted it to look in about 8 minutes. Next, I hung the strands and moved them around a bit in 6 minutes and finally hanging the ornaments took less than 4 minutes. Total time to complete 18 minutes!
 
Anyone can make their own crystal wedding tree. If you can decorate a Christmas tree you can decorate a metal wedding tree! It really is that easy!
