Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Storage solutions for Christmas ornaments, garlands, wreaths, bows, wrapping paper and other holiday decorating essentials can be simple, inexpensive and convenient. These see-and-do organizing ideas work on their own or together to store Christmas decorations efficiently.

Organize Christmas decorations with Velcro strips and labels for string lights, DIY Christmas tree storage and a hanging rod for wreaths and stockings.
Organize Christmas decorations in a closet using hanging shelves, plastic totes, hanging rods and simple storage projects.

Organize Christmas decorations in an out-of-the-way closet in a garage, basement, guest bedroom or other low-traffic space. These Christmas organizing ideas make sure you get the most storage value for your available space even if you don’t have a “Christmas closet.”

Ornaments store neatly in a three-layer clear plastic tote.

Ornament Storage

Keep ornaments stowed and neatly arranged with an inexpensive three-layer tote (#632215). Keep matching ornaments or colors together in one tray. The trays stack together, and a lid snaps on top so you can sort ornaments easily. Removable dividers keep ornaments separate and organized. Nestle fragile Christmas ornaments in tissue paper for extra safety. Add labels on the dividers or bottom of each section to give special ornaments consistent storage spots. Set tabletop decorations, such as these glittery trees, in a tray to make them easy to grab.

 

Shop Baskets & Storage Containers

Keep Christmas ornament hangers, twine, scissors, batteries and tape organized in a repurposed toolbox.

Christmas Supply Organizer

Create a Christmas decorating toolbox. Keep easy-to-forget supplies in one organized container so you never have to go searching for extra string light bulbs, batteries, ornament hangers, adhesive hooks, tape, twine or tools. A small toolbox (#458775, model #TB126-RED) organizes everything in a grab-and-go container. Take it with you while you decorate the Christmas tree, or carry it outside to use when you hang Christmas lights. You can see supplies at a glance, and it tucks neatly on a shelf or in a closet when you’re finished.

Organize ornaments, garland, tree skirt and string lights for a tiny Christmas tree in one plastic tote.

Tiny Tree Decorating Kit

If a tiny Christmas tree is just your style, keep all your decorations in a customized tiny tree decorations tote. Outfit a small plastic tote with threaded rods to create a no-fuss way to organize Christmas decorations. Hang the ornaments directly on the rods—no need to remove the hangers, so no searching for ornament hangers. Wrap garland and string lights with Velcro fasteners (#49845) to keep them from tangling. Tuck a tiny tree skirt and a topper in the bottom of the tote, and nestle the garland and lights between the ornaments. Everything you need to decorate your tiny Christmas tree is in one box!

Store an artificial Christmas tree inside a concrete tube form with a chalkboard finish.

Artificial Christmas Tree Storage

Keep your artificial Christmas tree neatly stowed with this no-hassle Christmas tree storage tube. Spray a concrete tube form (#10150) and two bucket lids (#737853) with a couple of coats of chalkboard paint. We chose black, but you can pick your favorite color. Let dry and glue one lid to an open end of the tube to form a bottom. Wrap bungee cords (#146453) around each section of your artificial tree, and slip the tree inside the tube. A slim 6-foot tree will fit in this one with room to spare. Cap it with the second lid and add your own chalk icon or label.

Repurpose a bucket and tool organizer for Christmas bows and wrapping supplies.

Bow and Gift Tag Organizer

Perfect for tools—even better for bows. Drop your gift bows into a 10-quart bucket (#546959) to keep them from getting crushed. Top the bucket of bows with a stacking bucket tool organizer (#552560) filled with gift tags, ribbon, tape, scissors and other gift-wrapping essentials.

Store wrapping paper in a galvanized bucket on wheels.

Rolling Wrapping Paper Storage

Easily move your wrapping paper rolls to your holiday gift-wrapping location and afterwards back into storage. This rolling wrapping paper bucket keeps Christmas wrapping paper close and contained. Casters make it easy to move the container from an out-of-the-way closet to a close-at-hand wrapping station. It’s ideal for Christmas paper or for all-occasion wrapping paper.

Hang Christmas stockings, wreaths and garlands on an adjustable garment rod.

Wreath and Stocking Holder

Wreaths, garland and stockings are meant to be hung. Store them that way, too. Use an expandable hanging bar (#605413) on your closet rod. Then slip stockings, wreaths or lengths of garland on the rod. It’s quick, easy, adjustable and compact.

Tuck string lights into a hanging shelf organizer.

Christmas Light Organizing

Don’t fight with a tangle of Christmas string lights. First, wrap each string of lights with a Velcro fastener (#49845) to keep them in a neat bundle. Then, label each string according to its use: Christmas tree, northeast window, mantel, front door and so on. You’ll never have to figure out which string of lights fits your space. Tuck the bundled lights in the cubbies of a hanging closet organizer (#605410) so you can see exactly what you have.

 

Shop Christmas Lights

Label plastic shoe boxes and fill them with Christmas tree picks, ribbon, bows, bead garland, candles and other small Christmas decorations.

Christmas Decoration Keepers

Christmas overflows with tree decorations, tabletop embellishments and all the tiny touches that make the season special. Pick up an extra closet organizer or two (#605409, #605410) to create shelves and cubbies for small decorations, Christmas pillows or the Christmas tree skirt. To keep small things accessible but confined, add plastic shoebox-size totes (#274123). Fill them with small Christmas decorations, string-light hanging supplies, Christmas tree picks, ribbons, candles and other seasonal necessities.
