It’s that time of year. Seems like we just put up the Christmas decorations and here it is time to take them back down! I wanted to share my Easy Ways to Store Holiday Garland that makes it so simple to put them back up next year. I like to keep everything simple. I know you do too!
I shared a few weeks back how to hang garland on a staircase banister, so now let’s take it down…

You will need one or two large plastic storage bins. My entire garland fits in one box as it is not very fluffy.
First, I remove all bows and silk poinsettias and set them aside. I usually start at the top and remove the velcro garland tie I shared in my last post How to Hang Garland on a Staircase Banister. I really LOVE these Velcro Garland Ties because it is easy to secure together and can be used from year to year. Once I have it removed, I reattach it to itself and leave it in the exact place on the garland where it was attached to the railing. On my garland, I have four Velcro Garland Ties attached that go in the box. I also leave all of the lights attached as well. Then in a circular motion, I layer the garland in the bin. I even leave the extension cord attached so I don’t have to go searching for it next year. Gently place bows on top and then the lid.
- Leave lights, garland ties and the extension cord attached to the garland.
- Layer the garland in a circular motion into the box.
- Place bows on top.
A few easy steps ensure an easy setup for next year!
