Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert, and owner of Events by Fabulous. Today, we're gonna talk about how to design a white flocked Christmas tree. Alright, before we get started, we're gonna make sure that we're properly protected. We want to cover our floors with a drop cloth. We definitely want to put on an apron, and absolutely use some surgical gloves, because that spray snow gets everywhere. So you want to make sure that you've taken the proper precautions. Okay, next we're gonna make sure that all of our branches are in the right position, because after we spray there's no going back, you actually can't touch the branches much, and then we're gonna start spraying. So, when we actually start the spraying, we want to make sure that we're spraying from up above, remember, snow comes from the sky, so if you want it to look natural the snow has to be mainly on the top parts of the branches. And while you're actually spraying, strategically I would stick your hand in and cover the actual light itself so that the spray snow doesn't get all over the lights. If you do that, you're tree will definitely glow a lot brighter. So the last step in perfecting this beautiful flocked tree is just adding a little bit of glitter to give it that little bit of extra sparkle, especially since the look I'm creating here is kind of a vintage look. I've used a pale gold glitter, and all I'm gonna do is use some spray glue like Tack 2000, I'm gonna spray it on the exterior branches, and then just lightly dust the glitter over everywhere really for a consistent look you want to create a consistent backdrop for your ornaments. Now the last step after you've done this beautiful, gorgeous decorating is just to sit back and enjoy your work. You need to wait about 30 minutes to let all of the glue and the snow completely dry before you actually want to go in and decorate with ornaments.
