We Flock You A Merry Christmas! Flocking Your Christmas Tree!




I can't take credit for this tree. You see it was hubby, who last year, when we were planning Christmas at our house, dreamed this up. Both of us had grandmothers who would often do a tree with cardinals and red bows (my Grandmommie used red gingham, adorable!). He wanted to kick it up a notch with a flocked tree.

Prior to this, I felt towards flocked trees, what I feel towards T shirts that say: "I went to (insert place) and all I got was this lousy T-shirt". Like they were tacky and just CRAP. Well, I have had my eyes opened to the gorgeous snowy look of a flocked tree. We get no snow here in California so this is fun for me! I think it looks fabulous!

How about you? Do you flock?

Very pretty! I have never heard of flocking a tree. I have only heard the term used in scrapbooking.

Looks great! Love the red on white!

I used to flock! It is so easy to create a stunning tree with the white background!! Love it.
I haven't done it in several years because I got rid of my "flocker". ;)
