After holding festive celebrations in your home, you probably have a lot of left-over decorations scattered around your apartment. Read through the tips on festival decoration storage below and return your home back to its original state.
Storing Fragile Items is Easy
When we’re sorting through our holiday decoration items, we’re usually most anxious about breaking fragile pieces such as Christmas lights or glass tree ornaments. Storing these items is easier than you think, if you adopt the correct methods. For example, you can place delicate glass ornaments in plastic cups or cardboard egg containers before placing them into your storage box.
Get Inspired from Household Items
When we’re storing delicate and fragile holiday decorations, we can use items that we have on hand to make sure our decorations stay intact in storage. For example, rather than simply dumping your Christmas lights into a box, you can wrap them around a hanger. This way, the wire won’t end up being tangled and there will be more space to organize other items into the same box.
Reuse, Recycle, and Celebrate Environmentally
Every time there’s a party, there’s a lot of party waste, such as cardboard boxes, ribbons, and wrapping paper. We can re-use a number of these materials again to reduce the amount of damage to the environment. For example, the packaging used for aluminium foil can be cut down and remodelled to become a stand for scotch tape or ribbons. Similarly, the convenient dividers in wine boxes can be used to separate Christmas ornaments or wrapping paper.
See You in the New Year
By following the tips above, you should be able to store all your decorations with ease. While you’re going through the trouble of storing your holiday decorations, you might as well clean up the miscellaneous items around your apartment at the same time and place them all in mini storage to welcome the New Year with a more comfortable living area!
