Here's an easy tip to flocking your tree that won't make you crazy/make a giant mess of your living room.

Here's what you'll need:

Bar soap

Cornstarch, 2 tablespoons

Hot water, ⅔ cup

Optional :

Glitter

Paint Brush

1. Grate the bar of soap into a large bowl.

You want to have about two cups, so grate as much of the bar as you can without taking off any fingers.

Choose wisely.

3. Use an electric mixer on high for about two minutes to blend your ingredients together.

Stiff peaks should form. If you don't have an electric whisk, it'll take about 5 minutes of hard hand-whisking.
