Christmas Ornament Storage Idea

For the most part, I don't use a lot of Martha Stewart's ideas.  I think she's a very creative woman with lovely projects, but I just don't have much need for a fancy centerpiece when our table is usually set with mismatched cups and plastic plates.  However, when I came across this idea for ornament storage on Pinterest, I knew that it was a Martha Stewart tip I would actually use.  Before I took down our Christmas tree the other day, I got my supplies ready.

Check it out...

christmas ornament storage idea

Pretty smart, isn't it?  I already had the large storage box, but the flimsy little cardboard dividers it came with were pretty much worthless.  I just cut two pieces the same size as the storage bin from a large cardboard box, then hot glued on some plastic cups.  As I took the ornaments off the tree, I put them into the plastic cups, filled up one layer, then added the second piece of cardboard and cups!


Thanks, Martha, for this smart and easy solution.  (Now if only she had some tips for vacuuming up all the pine needles that flew everywhere as I tried to carry the undecorated tree out of the house!)

  1. Glueing down the cups is a great tip.

  2. what a simple but great idea!Wish I'd seen this before heading out to the store and purchasing ornament boxes!

  3. When I had a "real" tree, to minimize flying pine needles, I would lay a huge sheet down on the ground, tip the tree down onto the sheet, then wrap it up to carry it out. I still had some needles but not nearly as many.

  4. As far as the pines needles...pick a fir next time :) I can still remember plucking pine needles out of our carpet the day after Christmas when I was like 10. I love picking out a real Christmas, but I vowed never to get a pine! And the ornament organizer box idea is pretty cool too.

  7. I just wanted to say again: Thank you for this post. I noticed this has been pinned about 20,000 times on Pinterest, and you have 6, now 7, comments. I'm wondering why more people don't reach out and thank a blogger more often??? Are we that shy? Or too busy? Anyhoo....THANK YOU! :) Happy New Year.

  8. Another great idea is picking out storage bins that are 2 or 3 in width. These are generally used in garages to keep nuts and bolts and nails and because of the regular shape, it's a pretty good modular way to keep and stack your small items.

  9. My wife is creativity personified. She’s quite overwhelmed by creative ideas like these. In fact every year she makes something new and overwhelming that our apartment has flooded with cloth bags, ornament boxes, crazy lampshades and other weird stuffed toys and mural paintings all the time. Seeing your blog on pinterest triggered the idea of my wife blogging stuffs that she’s been making all these years. I have already booked a mini storage unit in Toronto( http://www.jiffystorage.com/ ) where all her random stuffs could find a place. This is mainly because our apartment is getting too small to provide room for her creations. Thanks for your great ideas. Keep sharing :)
