Apparently you must make it yourself. Flocked trees are not popular here, and I simply don’t know why. I’ve got my 2009 tree, it’s up and decorated, but if you know where I can buy a real tree that is magnificently flocked in a range of colors next year….I would love to know about it. I am willing to drive about an hour from East Central Mass.

In the mean time, if you have appreciation (like me) for flocking — here is how to do it yourself and all the goods to pull it off. If I lived in So Cal. (yes, I am still on that bender) I would easily be able to find one — they were every where — whetting my appetitie for returning home to and getting a pretty colored tree for our living room. Only to find New England’s plain old traditional trees. Don’t get me wrong a a beautiful natural tree for your living room is a ‘can’t go wrong’ sort of deal, but…. don’t you think these are more exciting????

And lest you think about dismissing my snowy whites, pretty pinks and dramatic blues as tacky or un- natural might I remind you that pink and blue trees do occur naturally and they are equally as show stopping outside.

I like to think of flocked and colored trees as an aspirational way to make my way towards spring in a stylish funky way….now I just need to get at least one New England Christmas tree seller to agree with me….
