I’m not normally one who “picks a color scheme” for Christmas. I usually use the decorations that I already have and use the same ones year after year, but this year I wanted to do something different. I decided I wanted to decorate with more muted colors versus the typical red and green. So I edited my Christmas decor down to the less colorful options. But when I went to put up my stockings they didn’t really like that idea.
So I got to thinking it could be fun to make a stocking slip cover to make these stockings look a little more grown-up and match the colors I was using. After all my children are no longer toddlers and have kind of outgrown the more juvenile motifs.
So that is just what I did.
Then I chose some trim to cover up the old green stitching and basted it in place. This is just a temporary make-over so nothing is permanent. We can always go back to using them with out the covers next year if we decide we miss the choo-choo and the snowman.
I had all the supplies on hand so for no out of pocket expense I got the new look that I wanted. I really love a quick and simple project. So have you made over any of your Christmas decor this year?
