Happy Wednesday Friends! The countdown continues--9 more Wednesdays until Christmas Eve! Today we are revisiting my post on DIY tree flocking. I call my version frosting...
I wanted to upgrade my rather tired looking artificial tree and noticed that the trees I was drawn to in the stores had a light flocking or frosted appearance. I wondered the best way to DIY it--I was hesitant to use spray snow or flocking because it constantly crumbles and sheds. After researching, I decided to combine the two techniques I liked best with spackling and paint.
I arranged my lights on the tree before starting to avoid having to work around my new flocking. I watered down the spackle to a paint like consistency--easy enough to apply, but messy though, so cover your surroundings!
I allowed mine to dry overnight and I am pleased with the results! The upgrade complements my tree without giving it a completely all white appearance.
Here's a peek at my Secret Garden inspired decorated tree from last year...
Thanks for stopping by and remember to check back next week!
