Last year we decided our poor little Christmas tree we had for over eight years (crazy right?!) was ready to be retired. My cat had decided it was no longer our Christmas tree but her playground. The metal rods that held the branches were starting to bend (thanks Chanel) and it kind of lost the pretty Christmas look. Fast forward to the end of October and it occurred to me that we had not purchased a new one for this year and there was a month left until we put up our Christmas decor. Panic mode set in as I did not want to settle for just any tree; I had something particular in mind, something of the flocked variety and I needed to find it.
Well, I was in luck when I was strolling through Michael’s recently and came across a beautiful 7.5 foot, flocked tree, and then I saw the price tag, um, hello! It was gorgeous but I couldn’t justify spending over $300 on a faux tree, especially since I have so many other things I am saving for right now, so I walked away feeling super bummed. But I never allow that feeling to stick around for too long. I decided there was a way I could turn an artificial tree into something just as beautiful, so naturally I did my research and found out how to flock a tree for a fraction of the cost.
