I have always wanted a flocked Christmas tree. Instead of buying a new one, I decided to flock one I already owned. Today I am sharing the process with you as well as the right products to use and show you how to flock a Christmas tree.
I have this 3 foot tree that I bought many years ago. I typically use it to decorate the kids family room downstairs. In the past it held brightly colored ornaments, and most recently it was a retro tree with a gold star and tons of tinsel.
This year we have added these built-ins that I built myself, make sure you check out that tutorial here.
With the addition of the built-ins and already having the wood wall the room is really taking on a unique look. I love the white and brightness in the room so it felt right to have a flocked tree here now. The retro tree just didn’t fit in anymore.
How to Flock a Christmas Tree
The first thing you need is flocking powder. I did a lot of research on products and Snoflock had by far the best reviews. I grabbed mine on Amazon and had it delivered to my door, I just love the convenience of Amazon!
How to Flock
Make sure you have the drop cloth spread out under your project area.
Spray a section of the tree with water.
Pour the flocking powder into the sifter and shake over the area you sprayed with water.
Continue this process all around the tree.
You can add as much, or as little flocking powder as you like. It’s totally up to you!
The Flocked Christmas Tree
Once you work your way around let it dry.
And then you have a gorgeous flocked tree! You can add decorations now. I decided to use some white poinsettias and white/silver ribbon with poinsettias on it. After Christmas, I plan to go to a local store and pick up some white ornaments that I saw (at hopefully a good discount). I will use them next year.
If you like this look but prefer to purchase a tree already flocked I gathered up all the best flocked trees by different heights, widths, and price points. Check out my 12 Prettiest Flocked Christmas Trees for more info.
I hope you found the process of flocking a Christmas tree as easy as I found it. It really makes the tree look like my outside does now! All snow covered and beautiful. Happy Holidays!
