Ok – So I flocked a Christmas tree and here’s how it went…

I will show you how to flock a Christmas tree yourself!

If you’re like me and you’ve seen Christmas tree flocking DIYs floating around the social media world – and you’ve been curious if it really works… I’m here to tell you it does!!  AND flocking a tree IS easy! But I definitely learned a thing or two about Christmas tree flocking that I wish I knew – to save me from saying “flock you” to my DIY 😉 … So here’s what’s up if you’re thinking about giving it a try.

To Start – I used these simple supplies…

Next – I laid down cardboard and got to spraying…

Ok – So here’s what I learned about tree flocking.

Initially, I just went to town spraying and spraying… But in actuality I laid it on the flock too thick and it took way too long to dry. It also kind of clumped together instead of drying evenly. What I should have done is several very light coats of spray with plenty of dry time in between. I would say at least an hour or two between coats.

 Clean up

Clean up is very easy if you do it right away… and not wait until morning. The snow in a can sort of smells like shaving cream and seems to have the same texture. So it’s very wet and sticky, but it does make clean up a breeze. Unless of course you wait until morning. There were some parts of my floor I missed and it left a film that I had to scrub off with all purpose cleaner and a scrub brush.

Indoor use only

So… Apparently snow in a can isn’t how the professionals would flock a tree! Although, it will make the Christmas tree look pretty –  it will not hold up outside in the weather. There is another long process of adhesive spray and powdered snow to create real flocking that you can put outside. So If you’re looking for a quick and easy DIY – Go with snow in a can… Otherwise you’ll have to find another DIY 😉

 

Well buddies – That’s about all I learned from tree flocking – I hope you give it a shot!! If you do – tag me on Instagram… I’d love to see.

Love,
