As the vacation season approaches, my thoughts at all times turns to crafting festive decorations that remember the coziness of the season. This yr, I needed to strive one thing just a little completely different than my regular felt ornaments by incorporating flocking for added texture. Flocking is a way that includes utilizing an adhesive to use colourful fibers evenly throughout a floor. It creates the phantasm of velvet or plush felt and may actually make your do-it-yourself decor pop.
My plan was to make a coordinated set of felt ornaments in the identical coloration method, to permit for a cohesive contact of velvet all through our areas. Beginning off with the most typical and reasonably priced, we’re beginning with clear plastic spherical ornaments. These had been just a little difficult getting throughout the decoration, holding it in place, however they turned out nice… Let’s get into the supplies and directions.

- Place decoration on a peg or hold to assist stabilize it
- apply flocking utilizing an applicator to use it evenly fully-over coat the article. Further will fall off.

To my delight, the fibers lined the shapes easily, leaving a good coating of coloration. A couple of gentle brushings eliminated any extra not caught to the adhesive, or a comfortable puff of air from a blow dryer or air compressor. The completed ornaments had an opulent, plush-like look. Better of all, the identical supplies and method meant the entire assortment matched completely.
*I do need to notice that now we have had a couple of not prove the primary time. We painted the self-leveling adhesive overtop the primary try, and it truly turned out higher the 2nd go round. Not eager to waste materials, I wouldn’t do that for each merchandise, but when there’s something you actually need to prove effectively, two layers has confirmed to be drastically higher.
