Sorry for the silence over here, we had some computer issues and just got our computer back. I have always loved the look of flocked Christmas trees. My parents have this Christmas book (that they put out every year) with all different Christmas pictures in it and one particular part of the book has a huge flocked Christmas tree with pictures of the people flocking it. As a kid, I always looked forward to pulling that book out every year and looking at that particular part. I don't know why it fascinated me so much but it was so neat to me. Ever since then I have loved flocked Christmas trees. We have a fake Christmas tree because it's easy and cost efficient, but one year I will have a real, flocked Christmas tree! Random fact I found via martha stewart, in the early 19th century people used to moisten Christmas trees and cover them with flour for that snowy look, interesting huh?
Here's some inspiring images of flocked Christmas trees done right.
I love Kate's flocked tree.

Have you ever had a flocked tree? I broke the rule this year and put up all our Christmas decorations about a week ago. I just couldn't want this year and wanted to everything up before family came to visit for Thanksgiving, pictures to come!
