Today I will be sharing with you how I flock my Christmas tree with a few ingredients. I have an artificial tree that I had for over a year and this year I decide to flock it, but I couldn’t find any flocking stuff and I didn’t want to spend a arm and a leg buying some. So I decided to make my own with stuff that already had around the house. Let me share with you the ingredients that I used to make my flock for my tree.
- Baking soda
- Spray bottle
- Mod Podge
- Corn Starch
- Clear Paint
Take your tree out
Second Take your Tree Outside
I recommend taking your tree outside to keep your diy flocking from getting everywhere. Side comment: Its very messy 😂.
Spread out your tree stems to your desire. Next I separate my tree. My tree comes in three parts the top, mid-section, third piece and last the legs.
I started with the piece which you see in the photo above after I finish spreading out the stems on my tree the way I wanted it I went and got my flocking material ready. Here is how I did.
Direction in a spray bottle I eyeball probably 1/3 of mod Podge and the rest with water and shock it up until everything was well combined together in the bottle. After I did that I got my stiffer and add my baking soda and corn starch together. And thats pretty much it for those.
Third: Spraying the Tree
After you get everything mix together get your spray with the Mod Podge and water mixture and spray down your tree well to all the stems is cover with the mixture.
Fourth: Flocking Your Tree
After you do that get your stiffer with the corn starch and baking soda mixture and start stiffering over you tree. I did probably a good four stiffer to get the desire look that I was looking for but you do can more or less its up to you.
Continue to do step three and four with the whole tree until your whole tree is covered with the flocking mixture.
Now you have your own Flock Christmas Tree.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays
