How to Make a Wintry Flocked Snow Garland

Create the look of a wintry flocked Christmas tree with a snow garland.

In this year's Christmas decorating, I used a lot of whites mixed with metallics. I love how the whites and the shimmery metals evoke the feeling of a snow capped forest. So when it came to decorating our tree, I knew I wanted to create the appearance of a snow flocked tree. To get the look, I made snow garland using a bag of polyester fiberfill. The effect was exactly what I was after and couldn't have been easier.

Using a bag of premium polyester fiberfill, I pulled small hand fulls from the bag, gently stretched it into strands of garland, then draped it over the tree's branches. 

I let my garland remain relatively clumpy with some areas thicker than others so that it resembled puffs of snow.

I'd like to say I spent hours on it, but I'd be lying. It took no more than 20 minutes to create this look. Seriously, it was just that simple, and I love the effect it gives.

Making this snow garland for our Christmas tree was the perfect finish for my wintry Christmas scene.

Of course, having a retro disco ball doesn't hurt, either.
