Decorate along with me in this step by step tutorial of how to decorate a flocked tree. I always watch the “getting ready with me” makeup videos and I really enjoy them, so I thought I would try decorating a tree and chatting with you!
If you want to learn how to flock a Christmas tree, see my post “How To Flock A Christmas Tree“. I love flocked trees, Charlie Brown trees or the tree at Rockafeller plaza in New York City. However, I was shocked to find out that my husband does NOT like flocked Christmas trees!!! He has helped me flock multiple trees and other decor. Not once did he say a word! MEN!
So, I’m leaving our bedroom completely flock free. I’m thinking rustic, tree farm type theme in there. So he will be able to rest without even a hint of snow. Maybe it’s because he hates the cold weather?
Steps to decorate a flocked tree
- Start with the snow blanket to provide some fullness at the base or just place your tree skirt there.
- Place polyester batting or stuffing into the middle of the tree to fill in any holes and increase the “snow” effect. It’s cheap and easy!
- Start at the bottom with the large ornaments, filling in the holes, nearer the center of the tree. Leave the edges of the branches for the smaller ornaments.
- If using glass ornaments, be sure to wrap the wire hanger all the way around the branch, effectively wiring the ornament to the tree.
- Cut the wired ribbon into 18″ strips, wrap around your hand and slowly pull apart. Then place into the tree and tuck the ends into the branches.
- If you have less stiff ribbon, then just fold it into a loop and tuck it in between the branches.
