Snow Flocked Christmas Tree

A white tree really shows off colorful ornaments.

Give a fresh Christmas tree the look of vintage holiday icon using a paint sprayer. Spray it to look snow flocked and vintage.

What You'll Need:


Tack drop cloth to a wall to create a spray background or use a Wagner Studio Spray Tent to create a work space for working on the Christmas tree.

Sprayer with Tree


In the front end cup of the Wagner Home Décor sprayer, combine the Saltwash, water, and paint. Stir to mix thoroughly. Assemble the sprayer and begin to spray the tree.

We kept the tree bundled at first so that the underside could be easily painted. Cut the netting off the tree and let the branches fall to a natural position, then resume spraying the entire tree turning the tree clockwise as you work.

Painted Christmas Tree to look like snow


A white tree really shows off colorful ornaments to their best effect, but Saltwash can be mixed with any color to create a beautiful tree. All of the ornaments were made using Wagner heat guns.
