Interested in an Inexpensive Tree Upgrade? Take that artificial Christmas tree and make it look brand new with this DIY SnoFlock Christmas Hack. Snow flocking is so incredibly easy and can be done in an few simple steps!
Many of you remarked on the Christmas Hacks you adopted from this post. Two of my favorite are the pool noodle wreath and hanging Christmas wreaths on kitchen cabinents.
I have another idea for you. If you have been on the hunt for a new Christmas tree, but have a lovely working on at home, trying this DIY SnoFlock Christmas Hack! It’s an Inexpensive Tree Upgrade and will totally change the look and feel of your home.
To get started you will need to purchase a 2 lb or 5 lb page of SnoFlock. This Self-Adhesive Snow Flock Powder will decorate an Artificial Christmas Tree with a Snowy Ice Flake look.
Safety first, as when working with any airborne product, I suggest using a simple face mask, protective gloves and safety goggles. SnowFlcok is all natural, but you definitely want to keep the dust exposure to a minimum.
Take your tree outdoors, and lay down a protective tarp or drop cloth to prevent unnecessary cleanup.
Three things needed for DIY Snow Flock
- SnoFlock The Original Premium Artificial Decorative Self-Adhesive Snow Flock Powder with IceFlakes
- Strainer with Single Fine Mesh
- Plastic Spray Bottle (to spray water)
How to Flock a Christmas Tree
These SnoFlock directions are simple.
Step 1: For your snow flock application, you will need a few common household items: a spray bottle of water, a kitchen sifter, a simple face mask, safety googles, gloves and a protective tarp or drop cloth.
Step 2: To begin, generously spray your Christmas tree with water, this will help set SnoFlock into place.
Step 3: Fill your sifter half full with SnoFlock. With one hand, begin to shake or sift so that SnoFlock snow falls on the tree. As the snow is falling, spray water on the falling powder with your other hand. Repeat this process covering the entire Christmas tree.
Step 4: Once a light snow is achieved on your tree, begin the process of creating thicker areas by sprinkling the Ice Flakes left in your sifter onto the wet SnoFlock.
Step 5: Simply use your spray bottle with water and spray all of the SnoFlock until it is saturated, but not dripping wet.
Step 6: Allow you newly SnoFlocked creation to dry!

Concerned about your talent? Buy a Christmas Tree or Wreath from The Dollar Tree and experiment there first. Then move on to your home Christmas tree.
After talking to a friend about her experience, I asked if her’s shed. She said not really. She noticed more shedding with her artificial pine needs than the SnoFlock.
After reading reviews from others, you do want to be careful with storage as the snow can fall off a little. You would store it carefully as any fake tree.
We, personally, have a snow flocked tree and have no trouble with hanging ornaments.
How Much Snow Flock Do I Buy?
SnoFlock 2 Pound Bag: Perfect for medium sized trees and a variety of SnoFlock looks, or to adore wreaths, garlands, or other festive foliage. This bag will cover a 3 to 5 foot tree with a very heavy, blizzard look or 7-8 foot tree with a medium snow look.
SnoFlock 5 Pound Bag: A 5 lb bag can cover a standard seven-foot Christmas tree to a heavy, blizzard white appearance.
