Kitschy Vintage Valentine’s Deer a Flocking with Sand Tutorial

I love flocking. From fabric with texture to nodding chihuahuas in a rear window – flocking makes my heart flutter. The kids and I have been dabbling in sand art lately and that is when I had the idea to flock with sand. I have Valentine’s Day tunnel vision so today for I Love to Create I grabbed a kitschy deer I had on hand and got to flocking.


Craft Sand


Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Paint Brush

This project is super easy. First up paint your figurine with glue. While the glue is still wet sprinkle on your sand.

Once your glue is dry shake off your excess sand. I went in and added glue polka dots that I sprinkled with hot pink sand.

When your glue is dry display your vintage Valentine’s deer with pride! I can’t wait to flock more figurines!
