Create A Snow Covered Christmas Tree (5 tips & ideas)
Have you ever wondered how certain trees just look magically covered in snow?? Well, and just magical?? Today I’m sharing 5 ways to up your tree game…with “snow” so you can have a magical snow covered Christmas tree look too!
I recently posted a photo over on Instagram, (the one below, actually) sharing our Christmas tree from a previous year and got a bunch of questions about how I get the “snowy” white look.
I have shared one way to make your trees snowy white here on the blog.
And it’s the main way to get the look, I suppose. And that would be by flocking them.
Since then, I have found other ways to get the look or add to the look if you already have a flocked tree. (and even if you don’t!)
I thought it was high time to get them all in one place to make it more simple to find. Right now the information is spread out into several posts (besides the one below) so it’s almost impossible to find and utilize.
Here are 5 tips and ideas for creating a snow covered Christmas tree look yourself!
1. Snow Flocking
I’ve got an ENTIRE post dedicated to doing it this way.
You can read all about it >>> right here.
2. Dusters From The Dollar Store
They are small but fluffy and easy to tuck in and around to add bulk…and snow!
You can usually find these at the Dollar Store or Dollar General. (Dollar Store makes it a win for a budget friendly snow covered Christmas tree)
I found some similar ones >>> here in case you can’t find them locally. (I have not tried these though it looks like a good deal at 12 for $6.40)
3. Furry White (or off white) Garland
I used some of the fluffy white garland AND a few of the dusters on this tree for even more of that snowy look.
The place I purchased mine from is now discontinued but I found some that is very similar, here.
4. Shaggy, Fluffy, Puffy White Fabric
Anything like the above. (the fabric stores have many, fluffy, furry, etc)
Cut them into long strips and you’ll have a snowy white tree in no time!
The bonus for me on this particular fabric was that it rolled up once cut so the backside does not show at all.
So soft and pretty.
5. Big, Thick, White Fabric Ribbon
I used two different kinds of this white tree of ours.
And instead of wrapping around the tree, I simply draped them down top to bottom, tucking here and there.
You can add more or less to complete the look.
And those are my 5 tips and ideas for creating a snow covered Christmas tree look for your home.
You can use one or all of these ideas as they each add a special touch and look of their own.
I hope this has been helpful to you!

I’ll see you back here on Thursday with a brand new Dollar Store Christmas craft. Fun, fun. :)
Have a wonderful week!
I felt cold reading this!!! I love the $1 store feather dusters idea…..easy to use and store too.
All your trees came out beautiful.
Aw, haha, Addie! Yes, they really are and thank you! xoxo
GORGEOUS!! I love them all, but especially the last one in your morning room! have you decorated yet? I haven’t but I did buy a flocked tree for our bedroom! XOXO
Thank you, Christy! No, not yet!! I planned to but we have been on the go SO much this fall. But all the trips are done!! Whew! (except our little hops down to the OBX, of course, but those don’t count! lol) I’m hoping to decorate this week. Hoping!! haha We need to get together before the holidays for lunch or something! xoxo
I am soooo happy for this post! I spotted one of your trees a week ago on something I was looking at, and loved the fullness, and white “garland” which I now find out is actually FABRIC! Wow! I never would have thought of that. I now have a new plan for this year’s tree.
Oh, I am so glad to hear that! Yes, so many fun ways you can add “snow” to your tree. And it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive! :) xo
Great tips! Here is another one for you, I use white feather boas from the dollar store to add the look of snow. In addition, you could use any color of the boas depending on your color theme to add texture.

Have a very merry Christmas to you.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Nina! xo
