This year, I was on a quest to find a better method for flocking my artificial tree. I wanted durability, a thick texture and lots of sparkle.
All I could find on the internet were recipes from the 60's with glue and Ivory Soap Flakes. Sounded way too messy.
So, I came up with my own solution. For this project I used a thrift store tree, a can of white paint and glitter.
I took the tree apart and applied a thick layer of paint on the top of just the tips of the branches (where snow would naturally fall).
While the paint was wet, I sprinkled it with glitter.
I reassembled the tree as I went along. It took about 24 hours to dry and it made a huge mess, I would recommend doing this outside.
Durability, thick texture and lots of sparkle.
