If you’ve been following along with my blog for a while, you probably remember my Flocked Christmas Tree from last year. If you’re new here, let me summarize: I was debating last year whether to trade out my old tree for a new one, or just revamp it with some Sno-Flock. My frugal husband encouraged me to work with our existing tree, so that’s what I did. I was SO happy with how it turned out, I decided to do more flocking this year!
I picked up a $5 wreath at Michael’s and was ready to get to work! (It was originally $10, marked down to 50% off – LOVE when that happens!)
The only supplies needed to do the “flocking” are:
- Sno-Flock (I have the 5 lb bag because I love flocking anything and everything – but if you’re just going to do a small project, you’ll be totally fine with the 1 lb bag)
- Spray Bottle with Water
The wreath I started with was pretty average. Nothing special, which is TOTALLY OK! I spent $5 on this wreath, but the Sno-Flock will make it look like a million bucks!
First I sprayed a generous coat of water on the wreath. This created a base for the Sno-Flock to stick to the wreath.
I took a few scoops of Sno-Flock and put it in my strainer. Then I sifted the strainer and sprayed the water bottle while the Sno-Flock fell like snow! The first time I did this, I thought it was going to be a huge mess – I was SO wrong! A single garbage bag acting as a tarp did the trick for an easy clean up on this wreath project. (Quick and easy clean up is always a win in my book!) I should also mention I did this in the garage – if you do it outside I would do it on a calm (not windy) day.
I continued to sift the Sno-Flock on to my wreath until the entire wreath was coated in “snow”. You can do as much or as little as you want – that’s the fun part!
I gave it another top coat spray of water to make sure that it really hardened when it dried. If you follow the instructions in the box of Sno-Flock exactly, then you’ll have no problems!
After the Sno-Flock had completely dried and hardened, I began decorating. I added plastic ornaments and attached them to the wreath with wire. I found some fun and festive plaid ribbon that I added to finish it off.
Flocking is SO much easier (and cleaner) than I thought it would be, and I’m officially HOOKED! I already have a stock pile of Christmas Decorations that are begging for some fresh “snow” – I can’t wait!
What will you flock?!
