I was swooning over gorgeous flocked Christmas trees on Pinterest this year because I really wanted to lighten things up in the front of my house. I thought adding some white would be perfect. However, I did not want to flock my big Christmas tree because, well, that sounds like a really big job; and, what if I change my mind? Also, I did purchase a flocked tree a few years ago and took it back to the store because the lights were broken and it made the biggest mess. If I didn’t have a house full of kids and animals, maybe I would consider it again. But this year, I just dipped my toes in the water.

Here is how I got the flocked Christmas tree look the Christmas without flocking my giant tree.
I WENT SMALL
I decided I would go with a smaller investment like my mantel rather than my giant Christmas tree. This introduced that flocked Christmas tree look into the space, and next year I might add more. I flocked two four foot Christmas trees that I have had for years. These trees were in need of a makeover, so we also painted the bases or urns they sit in.
Here is what my trees looked like last year when I just decorated them with poly fill for snow.
I USED FLOCKING SPRAY
For the flock, I used two cans of Santa Snow from Hobby Lobby. The kids helped out with this little project. They had fun spraying the snow. I already had lights on the tree and we just sprayed on the lights. That way we sprayed on top of the green wires. The kids just sprayed until their cans were empty; but, if I were going to do this again, I would do multiple coats with dry time in between. Also, I might use two cans per tree instead of just one can.
First we flocked, and then we painted the bases. For that we used Modern Masters Metallic Paint.
I ADDED FLOCKED PICKS
Hobby Lobby had these super cute picks that were flocked. I had thought I might use them on the big tree, but they went perfectly on these little trees. They filled in spaces and added to that flocked look I was wanting. Here is how they turned out this year.
