Creative ways to store your Christmas decorations

Now that they holidays are over, it is sad to see the decorations be put away. Sometimes it can be difficult to find closet space to do so. Sherri French, lifestyle and parenting expert, shows us how we can pack smarter and utilize or space.

Wrapping paper

There is no need to but a ‘special’ wrapping paper holder. Find a plastic garment bag and place all of your wrapping paper inside and together.  Add a hanger to store in your closet .


Don’t just place your lights in a heap into a plastic storage bin. Cut a piece of cardboard box and wrap your lights around it to keep them tangle free.

Beaded Garland

Use an empty water bottle and place any beaded garlands you have right into the bottle for easy storage.


Find a pant hanger and add any holiday ribbon you have right onto the hanger for storage.


A quick and easy way to store your ornaments is to use a plastic bin, cardboard, Solo cups and some glue.  Cut carboard to fit your plastic bin, glue the solo cups onto the cardboard, place your ornaments into the cups and store.  You can create a second level depending on how large your storage bin is.
