I would suggest getting an arch and completely covering in in grape vine branches you can hang the candle tealights from fishing line so it looks like their floating. I believe http://www.saveoncrafts.com sell the branches. Good Luck!!!

If you go to your local florist you could ask they price on ordering a bundle of branches through them.. I am a florist and I ordered all of my branches through a company called Carbone that we use for lots of floral things.. The branches I ordered are about 4 ft tall… I have ordered branches off of http://www.saveoncrafts.com before and they aren’t as tall as what you would need…  I am making a similiar archway for my alter, mine are going to be about 6 1/2 feet tall and the bottom 2 feet are going to be made into flower type boxes. Mine is going to be square on top instead of the rounded normal archway.. Mine is going to all be home-built though..  Good luck..

I am an art student and I just created a forest. I used newspapers and masking tape and made tubes that I connected to shape the tree. I then took tissue paper and watered down school glue and painted on the tissue paper so that there was texture on the branches. I then painted them brown. They looked really realistic and turned out awesome. Some of them I folded masking tape and layered it to create bark. This took forever but looked EXTREMELY realistic. These do take some time though but the end product is worth it.

There is another birde who created something like what you are looking for.  I believe the user name is gotitang .  It’s under DIY Ceremony decor.  Might not be an exact match, but I do believe it’s definitely a starting point for you.  Good luck!
