DIY Flocked Wreath

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
  • Strainer/Colander

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?!
