Christmas Storage Solutions To Simplify Our Holidays
Storing your Christmas decorations is challenging. Try these Christmas Wreath Storage Ideas for easy Christmas wreath storage solutions.
A few years ago, I decluttered our Christmas decorations. I replaced worn or broken items and added new ones here and there. Then I stored the decorations in containers. Ornaments, lights and wreaths got new homes. It was a huge job alright.
Before putting everything away, I researched the best storage solution for that item. Considering the accumulation of our Christmas decorations, especially wreaths in this case, the declutter helped.
Let me show you some of the Christmas wreath storage options I’m using and you let me know what you think in the comments.
Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention for Christmas Wreath Storage Ideas
I have several wreaths. for different holidays. Of course, they are different sizes. That makes for some creative ideas when storing my wreaths and Christmas decorations.
Do you have indoor and outdoor Christmas wreaths? I do. I enjoy making them, so there’s usually a rotation going every couple of years. The ones I don’t want anymore are donated to my favorite animal, homeless and women’s shelters for their use or resale.
Over the last 40+ years, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks for storing my Christmas wreaths. Let’s see what they are.

Christmas Wreath Storage Bags
I have all kinds of Christmas wreaths in my Christmas decorations stash. I still have the Christmas wreaths I used to put on my office door when I was working.
Some wreaths I bought, some I made (crocheted). For the smaller wreaths, I use these wreath storage bags for 24″ wreaths. They’re also available for 30″ wreaths too.
The handles on the bags are a handy way to hang your wreaths if you have a space where they can be hung. Hanging is a great space-saver when you can manage it. That’ll help save some space on shelves.
Just remember that these are soft-sided bags and the descriptions I read don’t say anything about the sides being reinforced to protect your wreath. You can remedy this by cutting out some cardboard rings to keep the bag from collapsing and crushing your wreath, if you like.

I also have some “hard plastic” wreath storage boxes. With some wreaths I wanted a little extra crush protection. And depending on the size of a garland, you could use these to store garland too.
Christmas Wreath Storage Ideas
There are so many kinds of storage bags and boxes out there for storing Christmas wreaths, that I thought I’d share some tips for picking out the type of storage solution you need for these Christmas decorations.
Get a bag or box that will fit your Christmas wreath snugly. You don’t want to crush your wreath, but you don’t want it flopping around inside either. Measure across your Christmas wreath and use that measurement to pick out the right Christmas wreath bag or box for your wreaths.
How you plan to keep your Christmas wreaths will help you decide what kind of storage solution would be best for you. Some of the hard plastic wreath boxes can be stacked for easy storage. A plastic wreath storage box keeps your wreath from being crushed in case other stored items fall over it. I especially like clear wreath storage solutions, so I can easily tell what’s stored where! Wreath storage bags can be hung from the ceiling or on the wall, too.
Use a disposable camera and clear photo sleeves to label your wreath storage bags or boxes so you know which wreath is in which bag/box. If you get double prints, you can add the location information to your Christmas Holiday Planner Notebook.
Before storing your wreath, lay tissue paper along the bottom of your storage choice, leaving a big portion outside. Lay your wreath on the tissue and cover the wreath with the extra tissue. This is just some additional protection against dust. I do this with my handmade wreaths and just leave the tissue in the box so that I can use it again.
These Christmas wreath storage ideas aren’t just for Christmas wreaths. Use the wreath storage ideas on this page to store your Spring, Summer and Fall wreaths the same way to have them last a good long time.
I’m delighted with the results of my newly organized Christmas decorations, especially my wreaths. I was pretty tired of looking at the trash bags I used to hang them in and I hated trying to fluff up the wreaths that were crushed.
