The Best Flocked Artificial Christmas Trees of 2023

The Best Flocked Artificial Christmas Trees of 2023

With October almost a distant memory, it is time to start thinking about your holiday decorating scheme. In today’s post, I have rounded up the best artificial, flocked Christmas trees. With budget in mind, all of my selections are under $400…

While I am not usually an eager beaver when it comes to decorating for the holidays, that all changed when I purchased my very first flocked Christmas tree last year.

It was a look I had longed to experiment with for quite some time.

So when I finally pulled the trigger and bought this 7.5” pre-lit beauty, I basically ripped the box open into smithereens and got to decking the damn halls.

As with any fake tree, I did have to dedicate about an hour to fluffing each branch, but in the end, it was totally worth it!

As opposed to the more masculine, rustic aesthetic of a traditional Christmas tree, the flocked tree not only felt more chic, but more magical.

While the flocking was more messy than a standard artificial tree, I can tell you from personal experience that it was still waaay less messy than a real tree.

For any of you in the market for a flocked tree, I have curated a list of some budget friendly selections below. The tree I have featured in my home and in this post is labeled with the caption “l”.

If you are unsure how the flocked look will work for your own home, the great thing about all of these selections is that they are lower investments than some of the outrageously- priced pieces.

While I cannot say that I have seen each of these trees in person, I can say that what I especially love about my particular tree is that it came pre-lit with warm glowing lights. When you are shopping online, it is always hard to know for sure how LED lights will look in person (sometimes they look cold and icky), but luckily the risk paid off.

At any rate, most digital retailers now offer free returns so that online shopping doesn’t have to feel so intimidating.

To make this non-traditional look even more approachable, I have included some styling tips below…

Tips for Decorating a Flocked Artificial Tree:

To warm up the look of a flocked tree, not only do I recommend warm white lights, but also adding warmth with the ornaments you choose (gold, champagne and black is always a winning color combo!).

Another way to add some dimension and texture to your flocked tree is by adding dried stems that can be found in nature (think dried pampas, palm leaves and pine cones).

If your tree looks a little wimpy and needs additional fullness, you can incorporate additional faux stems which can conveniently be purchased at your local craft store (read this blog post for how to make a cheap fake tree look fuller).

If you are wanting to evoke the feel of a true white Christmas in your living room, pair your flocked artificial Christmas tree with other holiday decor that has a magical, snowy look as well. Here in my dark family room, playing off of the flocked tree, I chose a white wreath and light-colored accents en lieu of traditional garland and greenery.

As you can see, all of the flocking in this space brightens the room and provides lots of interest against the contrast of the charcoal walls.

Update 10-17-23: In case you are wondering about the longevity of my pre-lit Christmas tree, I have now owned it for two full Christmases and have not experienced any issues with the lights or the tree itself.

Note: The model of my tree (the Home Accents 7.5 pre-lit led flocked tree) has been changed this year to include both a white and colored light feature). When I bought this tree over two years ago, it only came with clear lights.

While this tree in my smaller new living room (I recently moved to a new home) does fill out the space more than it did in my old house with high ceilings, it still works. That being said, for small spaces, you may want to consider a slim flocked tree selection.

If you will be placing your Christmas tree in a room with a standard ceiling height of 8 feet, you may want to consider a 6.5 ft tree. As you can see in the photos above, my 7.5 ft tree doesn’t leave much space for a star or angel on top now that it is located in a room with lower ceilings. Thankfully, many of the trees I have included in this shopping roundup come in a variety of sizes and widths.

Thank you so much for stopping by this week! I hope you enjoyed my roundup of the best flocked Christmas trees on a budget.

While artificial trees do require a larger investment up front, as long as you select one of good quality, they prove to be a great value over the years. Even better? They are much less maintenance to deal with than the real thing.

It would mean so much to me if you could share this post with a friend or pin it on Pinterest…

Hi Jody. Sorry for the confusion. My tree is the Home Accents 7.5 pre-lit led flocked tree from Home Depot. However, this year they did change the model to include both a clear light mode and a colored light mode. The caption for the current model is "l." :)
