My tree is gone (which means, covered in snow on the front porch). The ornaments are packed up with all the other decorations (which means, sort of packed up because we are in the process of reorganizing our basement). But, the house is fresh and clean for the new year, and I am so excited about my new ornament storage solution, I going to blog about it.
We don't have a ton of ornaments. Our collection is growing, though, and it has outgrown our old storage solutions, so I was on the lookout for a new one. I regret to say I cannot give credit where credit is due. It was one of those sites with slides and a billion ideas, and I can't remember where it was.
All you need is cardboard and plastic wine cups. Which we just had on hand and you might, too! Cut a piece of cardboard the size of the base of your storage bin (I use large plastic ones) and then hot glue plastic wine cups all over it. Load them up with ornaments, and done!
Cut another piece of cardboard to place on top and you have a flat base for further ornament storage or other decor.
No tangling, no breaking. This has changed my life! And it is a boring life I lead.
