Ever wonder how some Christmas trees look like they belong in a snow-covered winter wonderland? Flocking your Christmas tree gives it the same effect. It refers to the process of painting your tree, displaying the illusion that it belongs in a snow-dusted, magical winter forest.
Have an old out-dated artificial tree that needs an update? A flocked tree is the perfect solution. Continue reading to learn how to flock your own Christmas tree without making a mess!
Although the Santa Snow Spray says it produces no overspray, we noticed it does just a bit. We recommend putting down a drop cloth, or surface protection paper to ensure it doesn’t mess up your floor.
As an additional cautious step, we also threw some masking film over the couch, and put on coveralls to protect our clothes. Better safe than sorry!
If you’re working with an older tree that’s been in storage, we recommend cleaning off the branches to remove any dust particles. Use wet microfiber rag and lightly dust!
It’s time to flock. Starting from the bottom, begin slowly and evenly spraying your tree. To give it the full “snow effect”, we sprayed at a downward angle and topped the edges off with additional spray. Make your way around and up the tree in a spiral pattern.
The Santa Snow Spray will most likely get on your metal stand. If this happens, don’t fret. Simply take a damp microfiber rag and wipe the artificial snow off.
Once your tree is lightly dusted to your liking, make sure you let it dry before moving it. It’ll take roughly 2-3 hours for the spray to completely dry. Move your tree into place, and decorate!
