SEVEN years ago when our relationship was new we bought our first Christmas tree. I remember that day so well actually, I wanted to decorate a tree so badly I settled (they were out of all of the white light trees) for a pre-lit multi-colored 7.5ft tree. For years this tree has bugged me, again, I’m dreaming of a white and gold Christmas with a fluffy flocked tree. I’ve had my eye on a few from Balsam Hill and The King of Christmas, but for now, we aren’t spending $600+ on a new tree. This brings me to the most genius idea I’ve ever had! LETS FLOCK THIS B OURSELVES. I jumped onto Amazon and found this amazing product, and after reading two reviews (seriously that’s all it takes me to potentially ruin a perfectly good tree) I bought this Professional Grade Snow Flock. I started with the 2lbs bag, and I still have leftovers.
What You’ll Need:
- Snow Flock
- A Mesh Sifter
- A Spray Bottle
- A Christmas tree, artificial or real! (This is pretty close to our 7-year-old tree)
- Something to cover the floor (we used an old shower curtain liner that I had no problem tossing as soon as this project was done)
- The directions suggest using protective eyewear, and gloves, we didn’t use either because we
like to live on the edgedidn’t really have any, we lived. DISCLAIMER: I STRONGLY SUGGEST FOLLOWING ALL DIRECTIONS ACCORDING TO THE PACKAGING.
Here’s What We Did:
- Prep your workspace and cover the ground under your tree.
- Set up and fluff the Christmas tree, I am crazy about fluffing so this took a lot of time.
- Spray the entire tree down with the spray bottle, this helps the flock stick to the branches
- Use a disposable cup to add flocking powder to your sifter
- Start from the top of your tree and sift the flock while spraying it down with water.
- Continue this process down the entire tree.
- You can flock as much or as little as you want..
A Few Before, During and Afters:
I am SO happy with how this project turned out, it was kind of a mess when we first brought it inside from the garage it vacuumed up easily and isn’t shedding any extra flock now.
My husband is also thrilled I didn’t buy a $600+ tree.
I can’t believe how beautiful this tree turned out.
