DIY FLOCKED CHRISTMAS TREE USING SPRAY PAINT

I am so loving all the beautiful flocked Christmas trees that have become so popular the past few years. I especially love the one from Balsam Hill shown here:

However, as I just purchased a perfectly fine narrow tree a couple of years ago, I couldn’t justify buying a new one. I did some research about flocking a tree & there is actual flocking powder that is sold to give this effect. However, it is supposed to be pretty messy & somewhat expensive. There are numerous other methods for getting the “snowy” look, including just using cans of fake snow. I decided to go with good old spray paint & start with my small Alpine Tree that I have first before I messed with my main tree.
Here is a before & after:

I took the tree outside placing it on an old tarp. I then just spray painted it with a gloss white paint. I gave it two coats & then used a  textured ceiling paint on the ends. You can find this at any home improvement store.  This gives it a snow like look. It also dries in 5 minutes, which is great, as I am very impatient! You can really go as heavy as you’d like. I will definitely be using this same method on my large tree & will show the finished project in a Holiday Home Tour I am participating in, so happy about that!
