Christmas was a great success here at The Everyday Home. The first half was a whirlwind of parties and get togethers and shopping, but then we settled down after the kids got out of school – and it was baking cookies and visiting with Santa and just enjoying the time together. Now reality has set in the Day after New Years. All those baubles and balls and yards and yards of lights and garland need to come down. Each year, I try to organize it all so that decorating next year will be even easier. I don’t always get things placed exactly like I want, but I do manage to get my lights and ornaments and wrapping paper stored correctly. Here are the Best Ever Storage Ideas & Products for Your Christmas Decor.
Usually, I leave all my decorations up until January 6th, Old Christmas. But, this year – I am antsy to get my house back to normal and start on some DIY projects. I will leave the tree up until Jan 6th – but as soon as this chest cold eases up a bit, I am gonna start the process. How do you store your decorations?
Rather, ours looked more like this…. 😀
Great idea, huh? Here are some other great organizing ideas for your Christmas decor and wrappings…
Use a clear, plastic garment bag to hold your leftover rolls of wrappings. Hangs easily in a closet.
Wrap your Christmas Lights around a plastic clothes hanger.
An inexpensive plastic bin with holes makes a great Ribbon Storage Bin.
Smaller clear, plastic cups can be used instead of larger red Solo cups. For smaller, unbreakable items such as my snowflakes, pinecones, faux snow, etc. – I use these to organize and mark the items inside…
Good ole’ Ziplock Bags. I stack all smaller items in the same bin. Christmas wreath storage was always an issue for me, too. Right now, I have at least 6 different Christmas wreaths, and I have no clue how many Holiday Wreaths I have total. Let’s just say – “several.”
Yes, you can spend the money on these “Wreath Keeper Bags.”
But, a large trash bag and a clothes hanger works just as well.
All of my seasonal wreaths are hung and stored this way. I have created tags which mark what season the wreath is for and also a short description. My wreaths hang in my attic.
I have concluded that my Christmas decorations reproduce like rabbits. Each year, I need at least 2-3 more bins. But, this year – I have started pulling out decor which I no longer use or which does not fit my style any longer. I already have at least 3 bins of decor I will donate or take to the consignment shop.
So, how about you? Do you have any ingenious ideas for storing decorations you would like to share with me?For now though, I think another nap is in order. xxoo, Barb
