Tips for Adorning a Flocked Christmas Tree

One of my favorite times of the year is undoubtedly Christmas. So it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that we have several Christmas trees adorning our house.

Really, there are three of us here

So, you want to know how we got to be this multi-tree clan? It all began a few years ago, when we moved into our current house. I've always wanted to put a Christmas tree in our bedroom, but we never had the room for one before this move.

So I begged my husband, who usually agrees with whatever wacky idea I have, and he finally gave in. And this year, our family of Christmas trees grew by one: a beautiful flocked addition.

Since this was our first flocked Christmas tree, we had to use a lot of trial and error to figure out how to decorate it. But now that I have it figured out, I'm going to teach you everything I know.

Creating a beautiful Christmas tree doesn't have to be difficult, despite what you may have heard. The five simple steps I follow to decorate a flocked tree for the holidays are outlined below.

Select a Topic

Before I even get my flocked tree (or any tree) out of the box, I always decide on a holiday decorating theme.

The one thing I do every year is put a little bit of effort into making my home look different from the last. To follow up on that assertion, however, I will say this Additionally, you shouldn't feel like you have to try something new every year.

I think it's important to follow one's passions. And if you find joy in sticking to the same color scheme and ornamentation year after year, by all means, go for it!

I recently gave you a glimpse into my Christmas preparations. This year, the familiar red and white color scheme is complemented by gingerbread ornamentation for an extra dose of holiday cheer.

My homemade snow globe centerpiece and gingerbread Christmas tablescape are examples of how I brought that theme to life.

A year ago, I used tartan plaid in cool blues and greens to adorn our holiday home. I decorated the house last year in the classic red and gold motif. I enjoy coming up with new ideas and spicing things up.

What, then, should you keep in mind when picking out a concept for your flocked Christmas tree's ornaments? Toss in whatever decorations spark joy for you.

At Christmas, all norms are suspended. Have a good time, make a game plan, and relax.

Put Out Your Decorations

When you've settled on a concept, it's time to lay out all of your decorations and classify them by color and type.

When decorating your tree, begin at the top with the largest ornaments and work your way down in a zigzag pattern.

I made the first snowflakes out of large pieces of wood. Then, to make the tree more homey, I hung a few miniature cream-colored stockings from the branches.

After you've hung the major ornaments, fill in the spaces with balls and other baubles in coordinating colors and sizes to complement your holiday theme.

I wanted to use ornaments that stood out against the flocked tree, so I used a combination of red and gold balls I had lying around.

Then I threw in some brand new red and white ticking stripe balls of varying sizes.

A good piece of advice for maintaining a well-balanced tree is to take a moment to step back every so often. If there are any empty spots on your tree or if any ornaments feel too heavy, you'll be able to pinpoint them with this method.

At last, I stuffed a Santa into each of the stockings. I couldn't help but add a few of these vintage-style ornaments to my tree because they go so well with my red and white color scheme.

To make your Christmas tree more meaningful, consider hanging special ornaments or heirlooms from years past.

3. Decorate with a Bow

Once you've hung every ornament, it's time to decorate with ribbon.

As I did, you can use a single ribbon style, or you can combine ribbons of contrasting patterns and widths for added effect.

I used wired ribbon and cut small strips from each roll to make it easier to shape into large loops like these.

Then, I began at the top and worked my way down, twisting and tucking the ends of each ribbon into the tree in a waterfall pattern.

I used about 8 yards of ribbon on my flocked Christmas tree. Since it will be facing the wall, I did not decorate the back, but you can do so with as much or as little ribbon as you like.

The Fourth Rule: Flower Pins

The addition of floral picks will enhance the beauty and atmosphere of your Christmas tree. The flowers, branches, berries, and pine cones of the season are all appropriate choices.

One of my favorite ornaments for a flocked Christmas tree are these frosted red berry picks. Do you think these "picks" could be separated from a bush?

I saved money by purchasing only one large berry stem from which I could harvest many smaller ones. In addition to adorning my flocked Christmas tree, garlands and holiday-themed planters on my front porch are also adorned with these ornaments this year.

Advice: Shape the picks' handles as you work. They'll have a more natural appearance, and you'll be able to better trace the contours of your tree.

Fifth, dress the tree with a skirt.

Putting on a tree skirt is the final touch. They are available in many different hues and designs. A metal tree collar, woven basket, or weathered wooden crate would also work.

The tree skirt I have isn't even a skirt. This is a woven throw blanket I found in the attic and gave a new life to. I like how it adds a pop of color and texture to the room, and it also helps to disguise the ugly metal legs of the tree stand.
