Holiday Decoration Storage Ideas & Tips
I’m looking forward to putting away all my holiday decorations. Not because I’m a Scrooge, but because I can’t wait to organize them! You see, prior to 2013, I didn’t put much thought into organizing my holiday decorations because our tree only had two main colors; red and gold.
Then last year, I changed our tree to blue and gold. Since it was a small change, I didn’t think to organize my ornament boxes and haphazardly threw everything into the same containers. Definitely NOT the best way to organize, which is probably why it took so long for me to decorate this year.
To help make next year’s holiday decorating less time-consuming, I’ve gathered some great holiday decoration storage ideas from fellow bloggers that recycle or use things you already have around the house.

Christmas Ornament Storage Ideas
I think ornament storage is currently my biggest challenge. I have a lot of unusually shaped fragile ornaments, so I wrap my ornaments in tissue and place into a large plastic box. Below are some ideas for custom ornament storage boxes that work for the basic round or non-fragile ornaments. Have you used any of these ideas or something similar for your ornament storage?
Some other tips I’ve seen for ornament packing material is bubble wrap, coffee filters, tissue paper, felt, and batting.
Wreath & Christmas Tree Storage Ideas
I have a Christmas Tree storage bag with wheels, but I thought these DIY tree storage ideas were clever. I really liked Thea’s sewn tree bag and might have to use her idea for making a wreath storage bag.
