Tips and Ideas for Decorating a Flocked Christmas Tree 2018

You all know I love flocked Christmas trees right?! Sharing some ideas and tips today of how I decorated my wintery tree this year. 

Why are these Winter trees so popular? Having a flocked trees satisfies our longing for a white Christmas, even if it doesn’t snow on Christmas day, we still get that snowy tree feeling throughout the season 🙂

Flocking of Christmas trees dates back longer than you might think, to the 1800s when things like flour and cotton were used to flock a tree. Although I have not tried it myself, if you are an avid DIYer, you may want to try flocking your own tree, check out this must-know guide to tree flocking HERE. 

If you would rather skip the mess and buy a tree already flocked, I suggest you check out Frontgate HERE. My flocked Frontgate tree is 10 feet tall, fairly wide, very full, and fully flocked.

Next, make sure to measure your space before you purchase a tree, you will also want to check out 3 Tips to Setting up a Christmas Tree Like a Pro. These tips will give you a full and professional look and who doesn’t want that? 😉

fullsizeoutput_9380After putting my ornaments on the tree, I inserted my stems into the tree. I used pinecone branches that have a dusting of snow, and angled them downward. 

fullsizeoutput_9386I found these long stems at Michaels.

fullsizeoutput_9383I used a variety of stems on my tree including these furry flowers.

JW689LS0Q72c0FMdY6od2gI also used white frosted poinsettia stems.

fullsizeoutput_938bI used maybe 10 poinsettia stems in total.

fullsizeoutput_9387I placed loose pinecones on a few of the branches as well, many of which were gathered from our yard.
