Choosing a frosted Christmas tree is a great way to bring the essence of winter indoors, complete with snow-covered foliage and warm lights. French Country Cottage’s Courtney shares three elegant ways to decorate a frosted Christmas tree, including DIY ornament ideas. Choose classic Christmas colors, such as red and green, for the most elegant look. To make the frosted tree even more beautiful, hang various ornaments from the branches, such as red berry picks. Rather than placing smaller ornaments around the tree, use a few large ones to create depth. Make sure to space the ornaments evenly so they look balanced and elegant.
When hanging ornaments, be sure to attach them snugly to the branch. Avoid putting ornaments directly on the tip of the tree, but rather a few inches below it. If possible, place the ornaments one hand’s width below the tip of the tree. Attach the ornaments with floral wire or zip ties. Be sure to place the ornaments in different directions, so that the tree does not look like it’s wrapped around the entire tree.
Before you start flocking your tree, be sure to wear gloves and prepare a large sifter. Flocking is most effective when you coat the tips of the branches, and do not coat the entire tree. When you’re ready to apply a second coat, repeat the process if necessary. Keep in mind that the process will take longer if the weather is humid. If the weather is too humid, turn on a fan.
