3 simple storage tips for your holiday deco

Tidying away the holiday decorations you spent so much time putting out can take forever. With some simple tips and tricks you can pack them up in no time.
Time to pack and store your holiday decorations? IKEA has a lot of smart storage and organisation ideas for small spaces. Put big and awkward-shaped items inside a big transparent storage box and wind your lighting chain round a bin.
Wrap your decorations in fabric to keep them protected while in storage.
1. Organize and protect fragile deco like baubles in a box with a lid. Create adjustable compartments with a drawer divider – just cut and slot together to suit your needs. Pieces of fabric provide extra protection for your most delicate things keeping them safe until next season.
Got precious holiday baubles and ornaments you want to store safely? Use a box with a smart divider inside. Try the IKEA HÖFTA divider and easily organise your drawers as you like – just cut and slot together to suit your needs.
2. Avoid having to untangle a ball of wires next time you want to hang up the holiday lights. Just wind your lighting chain round a bucket (we used a waste bin). Use the space inside to keep fairy lights tangle-free with some tape in resealable plastic bags.
3. Put big and bulky in a box by storing awkward-shaped stuff like candelabras inside a roomy see-through container, so everything is easy to find. The wheels mean you can easily move it around even if it’s full. Use holiday throws and cushions as padding for storage and protection in one.
Need storage ideas for your decorations after the holidays? Put chunky items inside a big box. Let soft cushions create a shock absorbing effect. IKEA offers a lot of big containers such as SAMLA in transparent plastic. It’s on wheels too!
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
