Sort and Secure
Sorting your ornaments is the first step before packing and anything else. You have to go through your decorations and find the broken and scratched ones. These will have to go in the RECYCLE pile. However, you should keep all ornaments that have sentimental value or are in good shape and form.
Starting this new chapter of your life means getting rid of everything broken and old and accumulating all new and shiny decor.
After sorting all ornaments out, it’s time to secure the holiday lights, which are usually in a bundle.
You can use plastic spindles, kitchen paper rolls, wrapping paper tubes, and so on. You can wrap the string lights around the tubes, and they won’t get tangled.
Wrap, Immobilize, and Label
The next step is to wrap all breakable decorations by placing protective soft packing paper and bubble wrap between the items. Please don’t wrap the ornaments with bubble wrap directly as it can stick to them and damage them quickly.
After that, you should stuff any space in your containers with bubble wrap or crushed paper. This way, your decorations won’t roll around, clash with each other, and break into million pieces. There should be no movement whatsoever.
Finally, you should label all of your boxes, put THIS WAY UP and FRAGILE stickers, and you will be good to go. You can categorize the decorations by season, so it will be easier for you when it’s time to decorate, whether it’s Halloween or Christmas.
In short, this is all you need to know when it comes to wrapping and moving your decorations when it’s time to change homes.
It’s not rocket science, but you can always use some helpful tips and tricks every now and then.
We hope that your move goes smooth and stress-free, and we wish you a happy move and a loving new home.
