For Day 2, I’m so thrilled to be back today to give you a closer look at the Fun, Festive, and Flocked Christmas Tree in my office. While you got a little peek at it yesterday, you didn’t get the full experience of this tree, so that’s what I wanted to share today. Plus, I’m going to pass along some of my tree trimming tricks. Let’s get to it.

As you may have noticed, flocked Christmas trees have become increasingly popular in recent years. It’s easy to see why. You get the look of a Christmas tree (obviously), but it also has a magical snowy white glow. Plus, flocking on a pre-lit tree covers the lights, making them and the wires almost undetectable when it’s not lit. It’s genius.

This year, I decided to invest in a quality flocked tree. This is the GE 7.5 ft. Pre-Lit Alaskan Pine Full Flocked Artificial Christmas Tree from Lowe’s. I saw it in-store around Halloween, and then when Lowe’s asked me to decorate a tree for them, I knew this was the one I had to get. (It also has a surprise feature, but we’ll get to that in a second.)

Once I had the tree set up, I added colorful plaid ribbon. A couple tips about ribbon: First, get more yardage than you think you’ll need. For this tree, I used about 25 yards. Second, start at the top and let the ribbon flow as you work it down and around the tree. In some spots, tuck it in, and in other places, let it billow out. Twist the ribbon as you work around the tree to give it some dimension. Work in a pattern around the tree, but let the ribbon do its thing. This will give you a much more natural look rather than having horizontal stripes across your tree.

For ornaments, I began with the beautiful collection of faceted ornaments from allen + roth. I used the White Finial Ornament, White Ball Ornament, and the Red Finial Ornament. The minute I saw this collection from allen + roth, I knew I needed them all. (I even used the copper ball ornament on my dining room tree.)

With those ornaments on the tree, I pulled inspiration from the ribbon and my office space to fill the tree with beautiful color. I’m a fan of glass ornaments, and Lowe’s has almost any color you could want. From their Holiday Living collection, I ended up using the Pink Ball Ornament Set, Blue Ball Ornament Set, Green Ball Ornament Set, and Red Ball Ornament Set. For a tree this size, I used three packs of each color.

I finished things off by adding a few ornaments from my personal collection and a felted ball garland.

To say I’m in love with this tree would be an understatement.

I also picked up a few other items at Lowe’s to decorate the rest of my space, Including these Holiday Living Tabletop Trees (two small and one large) and this Holiday Living Pink Mercury Ornament Set.

Even though I’m usually not a fan of colored lights on a tree, there’s something about the tone / hue of these lights with these decorations that I’m totally digging.

Let’s have a look at that color changing action one more time.

Fun, Festive, and Flocked. Mission accomplished!

    Michael,

    I promise I will not comment everyday…but, this tree is so pretty and brings back memories for me. My family ALWAYS had a flocked tree when I was growing up. Only it was a REAL tree that was flocked at a greenhouse! They were always so fluffy and fun, but they were oh- so messy. This tree looks just like our trees used to look with the glass ornaments. etc. I think my mama was ahead for her time-with blue glass ornaments. I really want this tree…really, WANT! AND the ribbon tricks-YAY!

  • Adrienne at

    The color changing lights have sold me! Every tree should have this! Beeeeautiful tree! Hugs

    This tree is absolute perfection! I love everything about it. I had no idea Lowe’s carried such beautiful ornaments. I’ve been wanting to change the look of my tree for years, but couldn’t find one I loved. This is it! Thank you!
