  • Snow Flocked Christmas Trees - the making of

    You might be wishing for a 'white Christmas', but here in the south, you're pretty much out of luck. Still, there is a way to get the beauty of a snow-covered tree this time of year.    

     

    Snow Flocking

    • Even though we live in the south you can enjoy a white Christmas with snow flocked Christmas trees and wreaths
    • The snow flock is safe for children & pets and is made of:
      • Bleached paper/pulp
      • Corn starch
      • Borax (commonly used in soap)
    • The snow flocking seals in moisture so you don’t have to water the tree

    How to Snow Flock a Tree/Wreath

    • We choose the best shaped Christmas trees since the snow flock really enhanced the trees shaped
    • Place the Christmas tree on a stand
    • Place the tree on a rotating platform
    • Turn on the “snow flocking machine”
      • The white snow flock gets mixed with water so it activates the “glue” and sticks to the tree
    • Lightly flock the tree moving the sprayer up and down
      • You can flock the trees as lightly or as heavy as the desired look
