What is The Best Way to Store Your Ornaments?

Ready for now? Below, you’re about to discover 7 ways to organize your Christmas ornaments. They’re easy to follow, trust!

03 Easy DIY Ornaments Storage Ideas

1. Use Boxes You Already Have

Already have extra plastic containers lying around the house or garage, you may use them to store ornaments then. All you need to do is to create layers & dividers to separate your ornaments.

Other decorations can also be used as layers within plastic boxes. Using protective materials to wrap ornaments and arrange them in a single layer at the bottom of boxes. Add another layer of wrapped ornaments on top of a soft decoration, such as a tree skirt or stockings.

2. Use Egg Cartons

It sounds strange? No! many people love to store their Christmas ornaments by using egg cartons. You just simply put the cartons at the bottom of a storage box & fill them up (this method works best with small ornaments).

Then, lid & stack another one (I mean egg cartons) or lightweight decor items on top.

3. Use Your Cups

This ornament storage idea is prevalent among DIYers as it's super easy to make with things you've already had (or can get at the lowest cost). The only thing you should know is that this way won't work well with large or odd-shaped ornaments because it leaves lots of unused space.

If you love this method, you need a hot glue gun, a box, cardboard as well as plastic drink cups. First, cut the cardboard into pieces (make sure they will fit inside the storage box). Use the gun to glue the bottom of the cups to the cardboard & let it dry.

Next, fill one of the cardboard pieces with cups with decorations and place it in the box. Fill in the gaps with bead strings and lightweight, non-breakable embellishments. Continue stacking and filling layers until your box is filled. To ensure that the following layer has a level surface to rest on, avoid overfilling each layer.

03 Most Convenient Ornament Storage Ideas (Not DIY)

The DIY method is great but I know that not all of us will have enough time to do it. So an alternative way is to purchase storage boxes and then, all you need to do is just put your Christmas ornaments into them.

1. Drop-in Ornament Bins

If you want to store your ornaments (even with other decorations) in one place, a storage bin will be what you need. It may also be stored within the container store's weather-tight plastic containers for further security. When it comes to these delicate little guys, it's better to be cautious than sorry.

2. Tray Holiday Ornament Storage

Because of the extra-long straps, this container also works as a tote, allowing you to transport your decorations with greater convenience and prudence. It also makes it simpler to spread them out so you can see everything and have a plan of action while decorating the Christmas tree.

3. Farmhouse Ornament Storage Box

This ornament organizer makes storage fashionable with its elegant French country-style pinstripes. A transparent front also makes it simpler to discover certain decorations without having to open the entire box. Organizing rows by color is a fantastic technique, as demonstrated here. Furthermore, the zipper closure adds an added layer of security.
