Reminiscent of the flurries outside our window, the soft dusting of ‘snow’ on our flocked Christmas tree is fresh, fun and classic all at once. In this post, we’re sharing our favorite flocked trees in every shape and size!
Adding a flocked Christmas tree to our holiday decor – here’s ours! – has continued to bring a blanket of comfort into our home. This will be our fourth Christmas with this flocked tree, and every year that we unwrap it from its box, I lose my mind. I love it so much. (We still need to decorate it, by the way.)
Scott was formerly a green tree purist, but even he’ll be the first to admit that he’s a convert. It feels fresh and pretty, and perhaps my favorite part, it feels less overwhelming than an all green tree. You see, I’m one of those (slightly annoying?) people that truly loves Christmas – the music, the food, the television specials and the scent of cinnamon and cookies. Despite this, too much decor overwhelms me, and I’m itching to take it all down by December 26th.
A Softer Look
But! Since investing in our flocked tree, I’m always the first one to suggest pulling it down from the attic, and I’m always a little sad to see it tucked back into the box. I’ve always loved that the the frosty limbs get more sparse at the top, exposing more of the faux bark. Like, the really realistic faux bark. The ‘snow’ takes the edge off, so to speak, and it sings to my neutral-loving heart.
Every year I get requests to share our tree, so here it is! She’s a 7.5′ pre-lit faux blue spruce, complete with life-like snowy branches. And since we purchased her all those years ago, flocked trees just keep getting better. The secret to a flocked tree – well, to any fake tree, really – is all in the believability of the pine needles. Below, I’m rounding up so many other good ones, each one carefully selected by close-up views, description and reviews. I’ve even pulled together a handful of non-fussy tree collars, including the one we just purchased!

Are you on the Flocked Tree Train? Which are your favorites? I can’t stand how cute #2 and #10 are, but for a fuller tree, #13 wins my heart.
We added a flocked tree last year and I am obsessed with it! It looks like it belongs outside with real pine cones and some holly berries on it. I barely have to decorate it because it looks so beautiful.
How did you know?! I spent a couple HOURS last night looking at flocked trees. We just bought our second house, and my husband begged me to trash our old one. I had it for 10 years, and it was a hand me down from friends who had had it for years and gotten it from someone else. So now, I’m buying my first, and I want flocked.
Welcome to the club!
Question. I’m in the market for a new tree. I was a former white tree person (I loved it’s ridiculousness) and I agree that the full green is just not my taste (doesn’t really go with my homes color palette). So I’m finding myself drawn to the flocked as a bit of a middle ground. BUT my kitties like to nibble on the needles (they’re old and set in their ridiculous ways as much as I shoo them away). Would the material of the flocking be of harm to pets? Any on your list you think are more pet friendly than others?
To be honest, I’d avoid flocking if your cats like to nibble on it.
I’ve always been curious about this- I LOVE how flocked trees look, but does the flocking shed? Is it going to be like glitter all over my house later? How messy is it?
We have to vacuum after we fluff, but that’s it! No shedding.
So happy about this post. While I am not in the market for a large Christmas tree this year, I am looking to purchase 3-5 mini trees for our shelf in our bay window. I’m going back and forth on flocked trees, or a mix of both non-flocked and flocked. I love the selection you have collected here! One day, I will be getting a second tree for our entertainment room. I’ve already decided it’s going to be a pencil tree, they’re just so cute.
[…] I want a real flocked tree so badly it isn’t even funny. If I was ever going to go faux, I would pick one of these. […]
[…] Fortunately for me flocked trees are still trending (they’ve been hot in the design blogger world for a couple of years now). If you want to see a whole round up of flocked tree options check out Yellow Brick Home’s post. […]
