After packing up the last of your decorations, there’s still the issue of the excess Christmas wrapping paper you have lying around. Instead of just folding them for storage, there are plenty of other ways you can keep all the wrapping paper that you have on hand. From materials that you have in your kitchen to affordable IKEA plastic bag dispensers, these quick and easy ideas are perfect for storing Christmas wrapping paper!
1. Grab an old metal bin
Corral your extra Christmas wrapping paper inside any old metal bin to store them until the next time you need them. This way, you can roll up your wrapping paper and keep them alongside your other craft materials. You can also place your other craft paper inside this bin for further use.
2. Buy a couple of IKEA plastic bag dispensers
Even a few IKEA bag dispensers can store all your leftover Christmas wrapping paper. They’re lightweight and can easily be placed with your other craft materials, or in the back of your closet. If you’re really strapped for storage space, you can also put them up on the wall or cabinet door for easy access.
3. Save your old crates
If you have an empty crate from your holiday celebrations, don’t throw it out just yet! A crate can easily be transformed into wrapping paper organizers! You can place your rolled-up wrapping paper inside the crate, or you can add partitions from cardboard. These easy-to-follow instructions from Modern Mom give you the perfect partitions for your wine crate.
4. Make wrapping paper dispensers using hooks and dowels
If you’re looking for permanent storage for all your wrapping paper (even the non-Christmas ones), making your own dispenser is just what you need. With just two hooks and a dowel, you can make your own wrapping paper dispenser on the wall of your crafting room or on the inside of a cabinet.
5. Use a hanger and garment bag
Place rolled up wrapping paper inside a garment bag, and pack it away until the next time you need them. You can also place excess ribbons inside if there’s still room.
