After the holidays when it’s time to take down your Christmas decorations you want to make sure that you preserve your items and keep them looking new and fresh for next year.
This includes storing your Christmas wreath so when you hang it up next year it looks just as nice as it does now.
There are several storage solutions for Christmas wreaths that you can use. Here are two different wreath storage ideas for you to try this year.
How to Store a Christmas Wreath
Although these are tips for storing your Christmas wreath you can also use them for storing any wreath from a fall wreath to a summer time wreath as well.
Wreath Storage Bag
One of the easiest options for storing a wreath during the year is using a wreath storage bag. These storage bags are made specifically to fit different sized wreaths to help keep their shape and not crush any accessories.
These storage bags for wreaths can usually be bought for under $15 and you can even find the smaller bags for 24 inch wreaths under $8.
Be aware that not all of these wreath bags are the same though. Some of the cheaper ones tend to rip easily and you may not get much use out of them.
I recommend the Elf Store Deluxe Christmas Wreath Storage Bag for a 30 inch wreath as it I like the fact that it unzips all the way around rather than some of the other bags that only unzip halfway.
It also has handles which means easier carrying but also means you can hang it up on a hook in your attic, basement, or garage to easily store it off the floor. This takes up less room and sort of keeps it out of the way without it getting misshaped.
Large Garbage Bag
If you are short on money this year, you can also try a big, black garbage bag for storing your wreath as well.
The idea is to place the wreath inside of the bag so that it is completely covered. This helps to cover it from getting dusty or even little critters or bugs getting into it.
I would recommend that you hang up the bag so that the wreath doesn’t get smashed from your other decorations. You can use simple Command hooks in your garage or storage area to hang it on the wall to keep it looking nice.
Although a big garbage does work, I prefer the actual wreath storage bags as they don’t cost that much money but they do a better job of protecting the shape of the wreath.
Where to Store Your Christmas Wreath
You have all different types of options when it comes to where to store your wreath as there are really no restrictions. It will all depend on where you live and what space you have available to you.
The one thing that you should watch out for is extreme heat or extreme cold if you have certain accessories like glass or certain ornaments on your wreath.
I would also recommend you keep all of your Christmas decorations away from any possible water exposure so they don’t get ruined. If you have a basement that tends to backup I would definitely avoid storing any decorations on the floor where they could get wet.
Just some of the places you can use to store your Christmas wreath (and your other decorations) include:
- Extra bedroom
- Storage space area
- Barn or shed
As mentioned above the best way to store your wreath would be in the storage bag hanging up on a wall or from a shelf so the wreath keeps it shape and doesn’t get smashed by other decorations.
