For the past few years
I find my Christmas decorating
leaning away from too much color...
I like the feel of white and silver
the cold look of a winter wonderland...
(click photos to enlarge)
I have been wanting a white tree,
but.... I love the way the tree I have
fills the space in the foyer...
So I decided to play with flocking it this year...
While the flock was wet
I had to try glittering it...
It sunk right into the flock and stuck!!
I love the sparkle it adds!!
It wasn't a budget buster at all
(like a new tree would have been)
three cans of flock (ten dollars)
did my nine foot tree
and I used a bunch of cheap glitter I had...
This is not a project (or tree)
for the faint of heart!
It is messy!
I put it all together with a big tarp under the tree
The flock had to go on in layers
because it drys slowly,
and deflates a bit as it drys...
I'll leave the tree to dry over night and decorate tomorrow...
Dreaming of a White Christmas....
