It can be a challenge to find a way to store all of your Christmas decorations, let alone an aesthetically appealing away to do so. You know I’m a big lover of reusing antique and vintage items in your home and this is a pretty little hack.
That’s why I use old Coca-Cola crates to store my ornaments and holiday knick knacks, and we even have a few in the Vintage Goods shop right now. It just reminds of me special attic finds and treasures you’d expect to see in a super old home.
The slots in the crates are practically made for most ornament sizes and save you the time of making your own partitioned container. You can even store the crates in a more visible closet or on a shelf, rather than hiding a more unsightly plastic container away in the basement, etc.
For super old + special ornaments I tend to wrap them in Kraft or archival paper for safe keeping and tuck them high away so they’re not to be broken.
This creative, cute and eco-friendly solution goes over well in my house and makes packing up after the holidays a much less daunting task.
