Nothing says white Christmas quite like a flocked Christmas tree. Coming in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors (pink flocked christmas trees are perfect for little girls’ rooms!) unlit or prelit, there’s something for everyone and every budget.
If the look of a fresh snow dusting on your tree is something you’re thinking about incorporating into your decor, it might be time to spring for a flocked Christmas tree.
Are flocked Christmas trees messy?
Store bought flocked Christmas trees are not too messy. You will notice some messiness when you take them out each year, and likely you’ll have some shedding as you put the lights on them, too.
There is a process you can undergo to flock your own artificial tree, and let me tell you, that is messy!
It’s lovely in the end, but it requires a large space like a garage or on your back porch to carry out the job.
We’ll talk about how to flock your own Christmas tree below if you already have an artificial tree you’d like to flock.

7 Ft. Pre-lit Flocked Artificial Pine Christmas Tree
What a whimsical tree! I love this more “real” looking flocked tree. The branches seem to effortfully fall just in place, making it harder to tell this isn’t the real thing.

7.5 ft. Pre-lit LED Flocked Mountain Pine Artificial Christmas Tree
I really like this look as it’s a departure from what you typically see in terms of the “normal” Christmas tree shape. It’s a bit more whimsy and would work great for your main living space or even in a dining room, too. This one comes with warm lights, which gives off such a pretty glow.

Flocked Utica White/Green Fir
Perfect for a small space or even a bedroom, this tree gets tons of great reviews. This slim flocked tree looks very life-like and the branches even look like they’ve been “weighed down” by the snow, but not in a sad, droopy way, but in a winter wonderland way!
4.5 ft. H potted flocked tree
Decorating your entry way or perhaps your porch and need a smaller flocked tree for the space? This one is absolutely adorable and comes in a perfectly coordinated galvanized pot and is already pre-lit!
How to make your own flocked Christmas tree
Don’t see anything you like? Make your own with your favorite artificial tree! To be safe, I’d start with a tree you plan to put outdoors and once you’ve mastered that, you can move on to your main tree.
It’s been my experience the powdered snow works better. Start by taking your tree outdoors and fluffing it up a bit to separate the branches for even snow distribution.
Work from the top down and first spray a small section of the tree with water. Then, using a sifter, gently shake snow onto branches until you’ve covered the section.
Repeat the process until the entire tree is complete. The key here is working in very small sections as the water “activates” the snow and it will dry out pretty quickly, so you must go slowly.
Finish by spraying with water again to lock the snow in place. Wait a day or two before putting on lights/ornaments.
How to store flocked Christmas trees
Whether you’ve made your own flocked Christmas Tree or you’ve purchased one, flocked Christmas trees need to be handled with care when you’re not using them.
Store them upright and either drape them with a sheet to prevent dust from gathering or purchase one of those upright tree storage bags.
It is not recommended to lay them down in the box they came in or store them horizontally, as this will result in some of the snow coming off.
