Holiday Supplies Storage Hamper
Everyone has their own short-term solutions for storing gift-wrap and wrapping accessories like bows and tags. Even with the best craft storage intentions, wrapping can be a challenge to keep organized. Many times the necessary supplies end up scattered in various places around the home and aren’t right there when you need them.
Just follow these step-by-step instructions for creating a winter holiday craft storage hamper so your wrapping paper, bows, tags, ribbon, and more can go wherever you need them to, in one portable and organized container.
1. Purchase a plastic or woven wicker hamper with handles and a removable lid. It should be tall enough to hold tubes of wrapping paper upright, while still allowing you to close the lid.
Tip: If you choose a woven wicker hamper, look for one that’s lined with fabric to protect your supplies from tearing.
2. Attach hooks through holes in the wicker weave or at the top of the hamper for hanging various supplies. Here are a few options for using your hooks:
No-Sew Felt PocketMATERIALS
Felt in a festive color (12” x 9” if it is pre-cut)
Spool of 1/4-inch ribbon
3. Fill your hamper with various tubes of gift-wrap, tissue paper and a few flattened gift boxes in various sizes. Use fabric or sturdy plastic drawstring bags to hold boxes and tissue paper in their own separate compartments. This way, you won’t have to dig through the hamper to find the supplies your looking for. Simply grab the bag with the items you need.
4. Keep the hamper light so you can take it wherever it’s needed. Set-up your portable gift-wrapping station near your dining room table, in a rec room or family room. Look for areas with large spaces and flat surfaces so you can spread out.
5. Store the hamper in an easily accessible yet out-of-the-way place when not in use. Good craft storage options could be a linen closet, underneath a basement staircase or in a corner of your laundry room.
