How To Solve The Biggest Problem With Ornament Storage
As a handcrafted ornament maker one of the biggest problems I face is ornament storage. When I first started making them, I used a folding clothes drying rack but was concerned that dust and dirt that could could get on them. For a year now, I have been on the hunt for the ultimate way to store the 100+ ornaments I have made up at any one time. Enter organizeit.com. They recently featured me on their blog. While looking through all the solutions they offer, I spied one that had both of the features I had been searching for…. The Holiday Ornament Storage Box. Four inch spaces and sides on the outside of the trays. It arrived right before Christmas. Today I finally had a chance to check it out and share it with you.
It shipped folded flat but was super simple to assemble in less than 5 minutes. The assembled box measures 25″ wide and 13.5″ tall. The outside is canvas over a sturdy inner structure with carrying handles on each end. The drawers have a handle as well as a contents label. Each drawer can hold 18 four inch ornaments or can be reconfigured with different size slots. For me the four inch configuration is perfect. It allows room for the ornament and does not squish the bow.
The three drawers are removable and as I mentioned, have sides which is something lacking in every other solution I have tried. If you are using it to store your Christmas tree ornaments, pull out the drawer and easily carry it to the tree to decorate. The outside ornaments are kept in safely by the sides rather than rolling off onto the floor. The only thing that might concern some people is that the drawers are not on individual tracks. If you pull the bottom drawer, the top two slide out with it. I really consider this a non-issue but felt I should mention it for someone who might.
So crafters, if you are looking for a excellent solution for both storage and transporting your ornaments to shows safely, I would highly recommend the Holiday Ornament Storage Box. I know I will be ordering a second one. Check out the video below for a up close look.
