How to Flock a Christmas Tree in Under Five Minutes

I love the look of freshly fallen snow on the pine trees!  Unfortunately, we probably won’t see snow in southern Missouri for another couple of months.  In an effort to bring winter inside, I am going to show you how to flock a Christmas tree in under five minutes!

I scoured the internet for a tree flocking recipe.  Unfortunately, I could not find soap flakes anywhere!  I had to improvise.  Thankfully, Walmart was already selling “snow” in a can!

This project is best done outside or in the garage.  Lay down some newspaper and set your trees on it.  Grab your can of snow and start spraying.  I sprayed it on heavy because as it dries some of the snow falls off.

Takes about 30 minutes to dry.  For thicker coverage, apply a second coat.

The best part about using snow in a can, is that it wipes off!  If you want the trees “unflocked” for next year, simply wet a washcloth and wipe down the fake pine needles!  Easy peasy!
