You won’t believe just how beautiful a flocked Christmas tree looks when it’s decorated with natural and gold ornaments!
Flocked Christmas Tree with Natural & Gold Ornaments
When I decided to put up my flocked tree in the dining area of our kitchen I wasn’t exactly sure how I was going to decorate it!! Last year I went with a classic red & green theme in the kitchen but just wasn’t feeling it this year!!
On a Fall trip to Hobby Lobby, I picked up a couple of new ornament sets that I just loved. Copper glittery pinecones and gold feathers and also a few rolls of vintage gold velvet ribbon.
Then they sat in the bag out in my garage until December when I finally got around to decorating the tree…which was up and empty in my kitchen for weeks!!
I love to add natural elements throughout my home when I decorate no matter what season we are in and that is even more true during the Christmas and winter seasons.
This Christmas I have also used warm metallics in other parts of the house and wanted to create a cohesive feel throughout our home.
This flocked tree definitely combines my love of nature and warm metallics!!
Decorating A Flocked Tree: Tips & Ideas
Flocked Christmas trees have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. They are elegant and festive, and create a magical winter wonderland atmosphere in your home. If you are looking for a unique and beautiful way to decorate your flocked Christmas tree, consider using natural and gold ornaments.
Tips For Decorating A Flocked Tree:
- Use a variety of textures. This will add visual interest to your tree.
- Don’t be afraid to mix and match. Natural and gold ornaments look great together.
- Use a variety of sizes. This will help to fill in the tree and make it look more full.
- Be sure to space the ornaments out evenly. This will prevent the tree from looking cluttered.
- Have fun and be creative! There is no right or wrong way to decorate a flocked Christmas tree.
The first natural touch I added to the flocked tree was real magnolia leaf stems. The velvety brown backside of the leaves is what I want to highlight on the tree.
My local Trader Joe’s usually has them in their flower section because magnolia is one thing that you won’t find up in New Hampshire. I bought 3 bunches.
The first time I saw an actual magnolia in bloom was when I went down to Waco, TX and they were everywhere!!
To add the magnolia to the tree I just took the stems and stuck them straight into the tree in between the branches and dispersed them evenly around the tree.
Of course, artificial magnolia stems will work too!!
The next thing that I am adding to the tree is dried and faded hydrangeas from my garden. The texture of the petals next to the flocked branches of the tree looks quite pretty together.
The hydrangeas that I’m using are actually from my 2021 garden…this year I only had a couple of blooms…fingers crossed for the 2023 growing season!!
If you want to add a touch of whimsy to your tree, you can add some animal ornaments, such as owls, deer, or squirrels. I love owls!
I’ve been collecting cute owl ornaments for the past few years…most are from Walmart and under $2!! Some are fuzzy and some are made of birch and wood but they are all adorable.
Tip: Instead of hanging the ornaments from the ends of the tree tips I tucked the ornaments towards the back of the branches so it looks like the owls are sitting there.
Glitzy Metallic Ornaments
Now to add a little bit of glam to the flocked tree. Honestly, I couldn’t believe what a pretty backdrop the white tree was once I started adding the gold and brown metallic ornaments.
The gold feathers and copper pinecones are from Hobby Lobby and come in a boxed set.
Then I filled the tree in with pinecone picks and ornaments that I used on my tree last year.
You may have noticed that I didn’t add a garland to this tree. Honestly, I thought it would be just a little too much going on if I did!
Instead, I opted for tying pieces of a gold velvet ribbon (Hobby Lobby $3.99 roll) to the branches. Going for a more simple look I tied the ribbon onto the branches but did not make a bow.
In the Fall, I spotted the felted white poinsettias in the pick aisle of Hobby Lobby…it sounds like I go there all the time but I made one trip there in October and grabbed everything for Christmas!
Even though you might not be thinking about Christmas before Halloween it’s the time that everything is in stock and not picked over!
Decorated Flocked Christmas Tree
Here’s the final look of this beauty!! She was topped off with a rattan star that I’ve had for years…I honestly don’t even know where I originally found it (maybe Walmart??).
The metallics shine next to the white owls and poinsettias and of course, the flocked tree! This may be on my top 3 favorite trees that I have decorated over the years!!
