25 Days of Hand Made Ornaments - #12 - Flocked Ornaments

I don't know about you but when I was a kid I LOVED flocked things...plastic animals, books with flocked images, cards with flocking, etc. It was such a fun surprise to find it where you didn't expect it.

Well, you can create your very own flocked ornaments!!

25 Days of Hand Made Ornaments

#12 - Flocked Ornaments

Option #1




Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue or Glossy Accents


1. Draw desired shapes on the ornament using Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue. I love this glue paired with flocking. It's thick enough that you can draw designs and it doesn't run like other glues/adhesives do. You can use other glues but you'll probably have to work on one image at a time to prevent it from dripping.

2. Sprinkle the flocking powder on the glue.

Now, you'll need to turn your ornament to add additional flocking so the entire image has been covered...notice the white showing through once the ornament has been turned.

3. Let this section dry....this is the most difficult part of the whole ornament...letting it dry. Once the original section has dried, continue on to flock the rest of the ornament in sections.

Of course today it was frightfully cold so my glue wasn't drying very fast at all so these photos give you the basic idea. The glue will eventually dry clear and all you'll see is the flocking.

Making Memories Flocking Kit

O.k...this is a great kit if you can find it! Everything you need to flock or foil in one dandy little folder! I ran on to it by chance one day so I picked it up just to see what it was like. I think it was like $4.00 or so ~ you can find it on-line for less.

All you have to do is cut one of the adhesive images from the sheet and rub it onto your ornament.

Place the flocked paper over the image and rub.
