Baubles, toppers and lights are what turn a regular tree into a Christmas tree. But they’re usually made from delicate materials like glass, ceramic, or wood. And what about your DIY Christmas decorations and the kids’ craft projects? You’ll want to make sure they’re protected before locking them away for another 11 months. Here are some the best ways to store Christmas ornaments that are a little more fragile:
- Place baubles in their original containers or put them into sealable bags and then store them in plastic boxes. It’s best to get plastic boxes with lids that seal tightly.
- If you don’t have original packaging on hand, you could use plastic cups to put your baubles in and seal them with plastic wrap.
- Similarly, wash and clean any empty cookie tins and cans. They are sturdy storage solutions for fragile ornaments that are easy to find around most households.
- It’s always a good idea to label your boxes so you know what’s inside. No more lids covering the living room floor in search for ceramic Santa!
