Are there any tips for getting wreaths ready for storing in wreath boxes?

Properly Storing Christmas Wreaths in Wreath Boxes

There are so many wreath options for the holidays. You can find advent wreaths, a classic indoor/outdoor artificial evergreen wreath or even a wreath ornament. Despite their different sizes and styles, all of these wreaths have one thing in common: At the end of the Christmas season, you will need to tuck them away in wreath boxes until next year.

Storing large artificial evergreen wreaths can be a fairly challenging job. Since a wreath can last for several years, it is important to complete the task properly. To store your wreath so that it looks great year after year, you should:

  • Remove any large bows from the wreath. If you bought a pre-decorated wreath, you should still be able to do this easily. Most wreaths that are decorated with ribbon have a bow that was tied separately and then fastened in place with a piece of florist wire. If you can't remove the bow, stuff the loops with tissue paper to help it keep its shape.
  • Dust the entire wreath. If it is not flocked and does not have any loose decorations on it, you may want to carefully vacuum it to be sure you get it clean.
  • Store the wreath in a wreath box or large plastic Christmas gift bag to help it stay clean until next year.
