Matte ribbon in vertical folds is a scene-stealing decorating trick for the Christmas tree. This flocked tree pairs the ribbon with metallic ball ornaments and fairy lights that give off a magical glow
Flocked trees offer an excellent chance to showcase soft, wintry colors effectively. When muted tones like lavender, grey and soft plums are placed on green trees, their color values drastically change and become washed out. Flocked trees, characterized by their heavily frosted appearance, offer a textured white surface along which colors read clearly.
What better way to celebrate the season than with a little snow—indoors? Faux snow is inexpensive, and reusable, and perfect for transforming any surface into a mini winter wonderland. Here, the design team added a forest of flocked trees and a vase overflowing with baby’s breath to complete the snowy scene.
Choose a favorite animal as your Christmas tree theme. For this tree design, snowy owls are hidden among the flocked branches. Metallic green flowers, winter berries and a mixture of clear, green and red ornaments fill out the rest of the tree.
