Stir all the ingredients together until smooth. It looks just like whipped cream. Don’t forget that it isn’t and randomly take a bite. It will not be tasty.

Green artificial wreath

Fluff out all of the branches of your wreath. I got this one at Michaels. It was 2.99 plus 20% off.

Grab a glob of flocking and begin to cover each branch of your wreath. Make it as snowy as you like.

Flocked wreath decorated with gnome ornaments

I’ve taught craft classes for two different groups of sweet ladies this year, and flocking wreaths was one of our projects. My creative friend, Diane, added these adorable gnomes to her flocked wreath. Isn’t it the cutest? She sent me the Amazon link, so you can go here if you want to order these little guys.

Foyer with finished garland and other Christmas decorations

I have also added this flocking to garland. I had a tree in my foyer that was pre-flocked and I wanted the garland going up the bannister to match. So I flocked it. You can see the difference in this photo.

It turned out beautifully!

I hope you will try this really fun craft project. It will make your Christmas messier and merrier!
