Normaly in Hobbystores you can get floocking.
You need white glue for wood.. Apply the glue on surface and put floocking ( Dust ) on it.. What will be too much you can store it for the next time ;)

As the others have said, have a look at you hobby store. It will most likely be in the automotive  model kit section. To apply it, spray adhesive works fine. Do yourself a favour and wear a surgical type mask when working with loose flocking. It's so fine you can breathe it in.

Go on Ebay and search for nail flock powder, it is apparently all the rage now, to have your nails flocked !!!

I have bought a few small pots for peanuts and it works an absolute treat.  Paint a base colour (the same as your flock powder) then pour on the flocking, press it into place and tap off the excess.

I have tried the flour method and all manner of other stuff !!!  But doesn't look anywhere near as good as proper flocking powder.
