I saw a friend on Instagram last year do this. After a year of waiting…and finding out the tree held up well I decided to do it myself. Who doesn’t want a flocked DIY Flocked Christmas Tree?
After researching and reading as much as I could I decided to just get to it and do it myself. My friend told me to do not flock your Christmas Tree inside. Or you may have chalk paint all over your house from spraying it.

- Squirt Bottles (I found I liked the $3 dollar general brand bottle) or these [HERE]
- Chalk paint (find homemade recipe here)
Instructions for DIY Flocked Christmas Tree
1)Mix 1 cup chalk paint with 1/4-1/2 cup of water (you want it liquid enough to squirt out of the squirt bottle).
2)Pour mister into the squirt bottle.
3)Take tree outside. Assemble it.
4) spray tree
I did 3 coats and waited 15-30 mins in between coats.

Happy Chalk Flocking! And be sure to let me know if you give it a try!http://tribeofburton.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/img_9629.mov http://tribeofburton.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/img_9630.mov http://tribeofburton.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/img_9631.mov

Update: After having our DIY Flocked Christmas Tree up through the Christmas season I am happy to report it did great. Even packing it up the flocking or paint didn’t get everywhere like our store bought flocked trees. Once we get it out again next year I will let you know how it held up during the summer in our garage.
I am happy to report I had 6 people reach out to me during Christmas that said they did the DIY Flocked Christmas Tree and it turned out great!
Until the next holiday season! Cheers!
