Do you flock your Christmas tree?

Posted by   + Show Post

My husband and I have a deal every other year the tree gets flocked as he likes it so much.  So the year that it is flocked he gets to have a star at the top of the tree and the year it is not flocked I get my angel on top.

To me a flocked tree is so messy.  You walk by it and it gets on everything.  I am not looking forward to having it this year with my 2.5 year old.  I have a feeling it will be worse than ever.  But I will stick to the tradition as it is only fair.

What's your thoughts!

Yeah know that canned snow you can get to put on your windows that a pain in the butt to wash off?  Flocking the tree means spraying it with that stuff....of course you can do a less messy method and buy a bag of pillow stuffing and put that on as well....but either way, WAAAAY too messy.

I lightly flock mine with those bags of Christmas snow you can find at Micheals craft store. I never have a problem with mess. It usually stays on he branches. The only way it would fall off is if somebody would go over to the tree and grab a branch and shake the tree which my kids knew better, lol.. I like the subtle look of a snow covered tree. I do it lightly so as to not over power the beauty of the tree.

Actually it can be very less messy if you have a tree/wreath factory in your area that does the flocking with a machine. I worked for a family owned factory that did flocked trees and they are beautiful and they did muliple different colors and it is much much thicker than the can spray stuff.
