Supplies you’ll need to add grass flocking to your décor:
- Bunny Cutouts or other décor items you want to update with flocking.
- Kudzu Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Paint Brush
- Static Grass Flock
- Mod Podge
- Scenic Spray Glue
To start, gather whatever objects you will be flocking. In this post, I’m going to give you two examples. The first is this unfinished medium wood bunny cutout from Twin Knobs Woodworks. You can get this cutout in three sizes including Small, Medium and Large. CLICK HERE to purchase your bunny cutouts!
Start by painting your surface with a color that coordinates with the flocking. I used the color Kudzu from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint. Let dry.
Next, you will need to gather your adhesive of choice and grass flocking. I used a spray glue for this example.
Next, spray the surface with your glue.
Then, sprinkle the flocking material evenly over the entire surface making sure to cover it well.
Once the surface is evenly covered, tap the flocking material down then tamp off.
Be sure to pour any excess back into the container for later use.
Don’t forget to flock the sides/edges of your project.
If you don’t achieve the coverage you desire, let the first coat dry and repeat the process again. Finish off your project by adding a layer of the spray glue to seal everything in.
Here’s the finished project!!
Here’s what the process looks like using a bird figurine from the Dollar Store!
Just like I showed you above, first, paint your surface and let it dry.
Add a layer of spray glue and then cover it in the flocking material. I added a top coat of the glue spray to this one too.
Doesn’t this little bird look perfect in its nest!
Grab some outdated décor and make it new!
You can watch me experiment with the grass flocking below!
This is the finished bunny from the video above where I was using Mod Podge as my adhesive. Feel free to use whatever adhesive you feel most comfortable with.
