Add a few cold weather items to a flocked tree to turn it into a winter wonderland in no time!
The skates that started it all, ice skates that is! On a thrift store run earlier this week I saw these vintage skates for a few dollars and got some odd looks and even comments on the way to checkout because I reside in Phoenix, Arizona… aka: no snow. Little did they know these cuties were just for looks! Enter my Winter Theme Flocked Christmas Tree! (PS: Be sure to see 13 more beautiful themed Christmas trees by our creative friends at the end of this post!)
Winter Theme Flocked Christmas Tree
Getting the winter theme for your Christmas tree is much easier than you think! As always, shop your own home for items before spending money and think outside the box as you scan your house for items that are winter-related.
How to decorate a flocked Christmas tree
To be honest, a flocked tree does a lot of the work for you! LOL It already looks so full and snow covered. To put it over the edge I started with 3 strands of chunky pom pom garlands that added to the fullness and there were only a handful of leftover spots for ornaments.

To winterize this cutie simply tuck a few extra winter items into the tree collected from the house, at thrift stores and/or from the dollar store or Target dollar spot: ice skates, nut cracker, toy train, an extra Christmas sign, antlers or simply hang pinecones from the yard (roll in glue then sprinkle with glitter to for an extra WINTER look.) We found some winter style ornaments from our local At Home store as well, love the fuzzy pom pom ornaments the most that look like snowballs! Hello wintery goodness!
To finish this theme off, add a fuzzy tree skirt (or in my case, a small rug that normally goes on top of the piano bench. Haha)
