How To: A Snowy, White Christmas Tree

Happy Friday, lovelies! I hope y’all had a fantastic week.  Here in North Texas it finally feels like the holiday season outside. It’s been cold and rainy all week and while I love the temperature I start to miss my sunshine.  No matter what the weather does it just can’t please me…I’ll try to work on that! 😉

You know what brings some brightness into my life when the sun won’t come out? My Christmas tree.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I’m slightly obsessed with this tree…I might need an intervention.  Since I first posted this beauty I’ve had a ton of questions about how I achieved the snowy look and I wanted to take a minute to give y’all the 411.

First off, is my tree…

Real? Yes

Professionally Flocked? Yes (by Calloway’s Nursery)

That being said, you can definitely achieve this look with a faux tree or a real tree that hasn’t been flocked. Faux, flocked trees are easy to find from places like hayneedle and even Walmart has a great flocked line this year. If you have a real tree that you want flocked there are a ton of DIY guides on Pinterest that I’ve seen turn out very successfully.

Now that you have a flocked tree, how do you make it even softer and snowier? Easy as…

  1. Buy a bag of Buffalo Snow
  2. Open the bag and pull it apart
  3. Stuff tufts of the snow into blank/open spots in your tree

How simple is that? In the end you’re left with a tree straight out of a winter wonderland and you can add ornaments and other decoration or leave it bare. I flirted with leaving it bare after the lights, but did end up adding just a few white and gold ornaments to help it blend with the rest of our living room decor.

So, what do you think? Do you like the look of a snowy Christmas tree? We normally have a traditional, green tree but after this tree I know things will be snowy around here for many years to come. Especially because real snow is pretty hard to come by in Texas on Christmas. I gotta get it any way I can, right??

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I provided you with some inspiration for your own tree. Have a lovely weekend, y’all! xoxo
