Simple DIY Holiday Storage Labels

DIY Holiday Storage Labels. Use your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait to create labels for your holiday decorations. via

Ya’ll know I like simple. And it just doesn’t get much simpler than these DIY holiday storage labels!

As I work my way through our home, I’ve learned that organization doesn’t have to be complicated. It can sound like a daunting task that will take you endless hours to complete, but it doesn’t have to be that way!

I like to have a place for everything and everything in its place. And I also like to move quickly through these chores. Hence I’ve found that I’m getting good at creating the Simplest Organizational Labels Ever.

Holiday decoration organizing is no different!

I made these holiday storage labels with my Silhouette Cameo, but if you’ve got card stock or construction paper, you’ve got what you need to make your own set of labels!

After unpacking our Christmas decorations back in November, I knew I needed to create a better storage system when I went to pack them back up this month. My decorations tend to run the gamut of styles, from rustic to glam, and colors, from metallics to classic reds and greens. Every January, I re-pack by cramming as much as possible back into storage bins. You can see how after a few years, this system doesn’t work so well.

So this year, I’m doing things differently: packing like items and color palettes together. For instance: all of my sparkly, glam metallics are now cozied up together in one Gold & Silver bin.

Holiday storage tip: store like-items together, like golds and silvers. via

I also have a lot of colorful boxed ornaments that I use to fill vases, bowls, sleds, you name it. And they’re never been together in one place… until now (wink).

Holiday storage tip: pack all boxed ornaments together so you can easily find them next holiday season. via

But that all ends this year! With a new approach and these simple labels, I’ll be able to find exactly what I need in no time!

Oh, and I’ve got a great tip to pass along for storing ornaments. We have a lot of irregularly-shaped ornaments that didn’t come in boxes. We used to layer them between tissue paper and stack them in boxes, but this new method is sooo much easier.

Have I teased you enough? Do you want me to spill the beans?

We store our ornaments in plastic cups! Yep, you read that right!

I gave this method a shot last Christmas and it works perfectly. My uniquely-shaped ornaments fit perfectly inside each plastic cup, plus I don’t have to worry about heavy ornaments crushing lighter ones between layers of tissue paper.

      Thanks Katie! It takes forever to pack everything away, doesn’t it? I’m glad I finally buckled down and made labels this year, I think they’ll be a huge help next holiday season!

      Thank you, Michele! I can’t remember if I first saw the idea somewhere, or if it just came to me, but it’s one of those life hacks I wish I’d known about years ago! Thanks for the love and shares 🙂
