I created a DIY Flocked Christmas Tree to display within my home this year for Christmas. Being a Florida girl all my life, I’ve never really given much thought to having a standard green Christmas tree versus a flocked Christmas tree until this year.
I am not sure what it is, but I definitely am loving the idea of having a flocked Christmas tree. Maybe the white of the flocking gives it a more farmhouse vibe or look, or the lack of snow (non-existant) in Florida is to blame.

Whatever the reason, I was excited to create a mini DIY flocked Christmas tree with farmhouse look by using mostly items from the Dollar Tree. Flocked Christmas trees, in general, can be pricey!
So creating something with the look for a whole lot less is just not only amazing but super fun too!
This easy DIY cost me all of $5 to make using items from the Dollar Tree, and I am loving it. I loved it so much that I created two of them to place within my home on our TV entertainment center mantle. And, not only am I sharing with you how I did it but I also created a video to show you my technique.
I think they turned out super cute and I just might make a third DIY flocked Christmas tree.
Items You Will Need:
First, you will need one of those very thin, tabletop Dollar Tree Christmas trees. I am not kidding when I say they are thin. The branches are sparse. Just look at the tree before anything is added to it.
No worries though because we will completely fix that.
You will need to get at least 1 package of the garland ties to help bulk up the tree branches. I love these because they are wired and are perfect to add fluff to any Christmas tree that is lacking in the fluffy branch department.
I also picked up 1 metal tin bucket and 1 piece of floral styrofoam block to fit inside the bucket per tree.
And I got 1 can of white spray paint to flock the tree. You can actually get a can of the flocking spray, but I couldn’t find any at my local Walmart so I just grabbed regular spray paint.

Once you have everything, open up your Christmas tree and fluff it as much as possible. Then get to work adding as many garland ties as you desire to fluff up your tree. I used about 8 garland ties.
Once you have a desired fullness, take outside and spritz spray white spray on the tips and edges of the Christmas tree branches. You can do as little as or much as you want. Just don’t go too overboard or you might end up with a completely white tree.
Once the tree is dry, I removed the based and the plastic piece form the bottom metal rod of the tree. I stuck my styrofoam block down snug into my metal bucket and then place the rod down deep into the styrofoam. These seemed to hold a lot better than the stand it came with as well.
I then added my mini strand of lights to the tree and a buffalo check ribbon bow. Do you love buffalo check for this season? I love the buffalo check ribbon, and I’ve mentioned how I will be adding the pattern into my home this season.
I just love the buffalo check look when it comes to decorating. It gives a farmhouse look I love.
