For many years, I have had a Christmas tree in my dining room.
It is usually a small slim tree that can be easily placed in a corner.
This year I wanted to do something different, without breaking the bank.
A bit of a different look. I then had an epiphany!
I remembered something that I have used in the past
to embellish my plain miniature Christmas trees.
So today I shall show you how to easily and inexpensively flock a Christmas tree.
But first, let me show you last year’s dining room christmas tree.
I often decorate the dining room table during the Holidays with pretty fruit.
The tree was filled with faux ornamental fruit.
I have a plan on how I want to set my dining room table for the Holidays
and I thought that flocking the tree would be a good start to my plan.
I lightly flocked the tree using this product: Aleene’s True Snow.
It is easy to use. Just dab on the True Snow, which is like a paste,
with a small paint brush right on to the branches of the tree.
The great thing about using the True Snow is that you can lightly or heavily flock
the tree. I know there are sprays out there, but the spray can get on the lights.
By using a brush, you can control where and how much you want to flock.
Here is the before:
And here is the after:
I chose to lightly flock the tree and if I want a heavier flocked look,
I can always add more.
I am busy planning and preparing for my Christmas decor this year,
in-between other commitments and travel.
Here is some of this year’s Holiday inspiration:
You can purchase Aleene’s True Snow in most craft/hobby stores or Amazon.
I used approximately two 4 ounce jars for this tree which is a slim 6 foot tree.
This technique will give you a look of a light dusting of snow for your tree.
Do you prefer the traditional green Christmas tree or do you prefer the
look of a snow laden tree? I love both.
I wish you all a most beautiful day.
