When it comes time to put away your holiday décor, do you find yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed? It isn’t nearly as fun putting it away as it is getting it out, right?

There’s no need to buy fancy storage containers for your Christmas decor. Instead, give our thrifty Christmas decoration storage hacks a try!

From DIY light winders to bauble trays, gift wrap storage boxes to wreath bags, we've got everything you need to make sure that your decorations are kept safe when packed away at the end of the festive period.


You are spoilt for choice with DIY bauble storage. Use leftover plastic cups to keep your ornaments safe, not to mention egg cartons and takeaway coffee cup holders (hello, up cycling!)

Dividers & Storage Boxes

Don't let your decorations smash or chip, especially the sentimental ones! Soft-sided cardboard dividers stored within clear plastic containers should keep them in shape even if a box falls by accident.

Wreaths & Garlands

We need to keep the centre piece of front doors safe and sound whilst it takes a rest for another year, a thrifty way of doing this is by protecting inside a garment bag.


Use plastic bottles to store Christmas bead garlands tangle free and ready to use next year.


Wrap them around a piece of cardboard for safe keeping.

Alternatively store them in individual sandwich bags.

A coat hanger is useful, either hung in a cupboard or stored in a protective box.

Icicle style lights work perfectly wrapped within paper.

The Tree

When it comes to the tree, you can dismantle or store in tact. Whichever way you choose to store yours, you can save space by strapping it up with a belt, or protecting with cling film.

Wrapping Paper

No need to throw out rolls of wrapping paper just because you don't have anywhere to store them, that's not very sustainable is it now? Store your paper in a garment bag or create a makeshift shelve.

Happy Packing!
