Outside my studio windows today, everything is covered in a thick layer of fresh snow. Buildings have a thick white blanket on the roofs, the plows are creating large piles along the roads, and all the trees have snow on them. There’s something so Christmasy about snow-covered pines and I wanted so badly to bring in that snow-covered look to our Christmas tree. Here’s how I created our DIY Flocked Christmas Tree.
Our most recent flocked tree was part of the Green Christmas Theme. I doubled the amount of flocking for an extra snowy look.
This DIY flocked tree idea looks great on an already flocked tree or a green tree. Keep scrolling to see it on a real Christmas tree too.
How to Make a Flocked Christmas Tree
My secret ingredient to a DIY flocked Christmas tree is white feather boas. The feather boas lay so lightly on the branches and are very easy to manipulate in the tree branches. The fluffy white feathers mimic a fresh white snowfall.
The lights on the tree shine through the boas and give the feathers a soft glow. I highly recommend using LED lights with a feather boa so they do not get hot.
The feather boas should be placed on the Christmas tree after adding lights and before any ornaments go up.
This is last year’s Metallic Christmas theme on the flocked tree with feather boas. There are four, six-foot feather boas on this 7′ tree.
Our first flocked tree was our last real tree a few years ago. That year we had a Red and White Glam Christmas theme that year. This tree has four six-foot feather boas on an 8′ balsam fir.
This White and Green Christmas Tree has ten six-foot feather boas on a 7′ flocked artificial Christmas tree. The extra boas add so much snow!
Maybe some year I’ll skip the snow-covered Christmas tree and just go plain, but for now, the snowy tree is my jam.
