ORNAMENT HANGING

Use a wicker basket, with a handle, to carry and hold unwrapped ornaments, while you place them on the tree.

 

LIGHT STRINGING

Setup 4 people, on 4 ladders, around your tree, and pass the string of lights from 1 person to the next until the entire tree is wrapped.

 

OUTDOOR LIGHTS

Keep your outdoor lights on an automatic timer so you don’t have to worry about turning them on and off.

 

CHOSE MEDIUM-SIZED STORAGE BINS

Contain holiday decor in medium-sized, manageable bins that are easy for 1 person to maneuver.

 

WHERE TO STORE DECORATIONS?

Keep holiday decorations together in a storage space that is accessible, but not front and center, since you will only be accessing them yearly

 

KEEP ALL HOLIDAY THINGS TOGETHER

We recommend storing all holiday items together, including things that are often kept out all year, like holiday cookie cutters, dish rags, and mugs.

 

PHOTOGRAPH YOUR DECORATING

If you like the way your decoration look, take photographs to reference next year.

 

SKIP WRAPPING ORNAMENTS

Since your fragile ornaments only travel from your living room to their storage spot, they likely don’t need the protective paper most of us wrap our ornaments in.

 

STORING OVERSIZED DECORATIONS

Store oversized decorations, like wreaths, in large, contractor-sized trash bags.
