I’m sure you’re all in full swing decorating, baking and shopping mode just like I have been. Christmas tree decorating is always fun for me. I’ve got you covered for all of your Christmas greenery decorating ideas if artificial is your style.

Flocked trees are all the rage and they really are so beautiful. I’ve never committed to getting a big one for my family room but I thought maybe a smaller one would be great.

I decided to pull an extra 4 foot artificial tree out of the attic to use in the foyer but it just looked sad. I knew it needed something but ornaments weren’t the look I was going for in this space.

I remembered that I had an extra jar of Maxx Gloss in white china paint from my Brushstroke lamp project and I knew it would come in handy some time or another. I’ll try paint on pretty much anything.

The tree already had lights on and I didn’t bother removing them…lazy, I know.

This painted flocked Christmas tree is pretty easy to do but my biggest advice, dab the paint on. If you try to paint with strokes the paint will splatter. I may or may not know this from experience.

Wear a rubber glove and hold the branch in your hand. The dab the paint all over the needles.

Be sure you also use a drop cloth because there will be some little drips. How much you flock the tree is completely up to you. I didn’t go over board but I can always add more if I wanted it to look thicker.

I think it turned out really great. I added some red wooden bead garland and a little cotton snow.
