Flocked Christmas Trees–-I know it sounds like a word one would use to describe the torture of innocent Christmas trees, but I can assure you that it is anything but that. Flocked is a term used to describe a tree that has the appearance of being covered by snow. The most realistic looking trees will have a dusting of snow on the tops of  branches with visible green showing through. They do not have to have all the branches completely covered, but hey–it’s your tree, flock it like you want it. If you miss Colorado’s snow engulfed trees, by all means go crazy and flock away. Flocked trees are available in a variety of colors, heights, widths, and amount of flocking. Barcana even makes an upside down flocked Christmas Tree. You can find them more and more in your local retail outlets.

If you are a DIY kind of person there are several sprays available on the market, usually sold as simply spray snow, which you can be used to flock your own artificial or real tree. Make sure you read the label completely as some snow sprays are only for windows and may not be rated to handle the heat of mini lights that will be in your tree creating heat.  Don’t hold the spray to close to the tree as it will make a thicker layer of snow. It’s better to lightly dust the branches repeatedly until your happy with the look of the tree. Remember that it will be tacky until it dries so avoid touching it and make sure you d it after the branches are set up like you like and before your ornaments are attached.
