How to store all of that Christmas wrapping paper — in kind of a weird place

by respaced on December 5, 2011

What do you think of this idea to store your wrapping paper on the ceiling of your closet? I love how it’s very DIY friendly, takes advantage of a seldom-used space (seriously, what else are you going to do with the ceiling in your closet??) and it won’t give you a concussion if it all falls on your head. I’d love to know what you think of this idea. Please share with us in the comments below.

I absolutely love this idea… I have one of those store bought wrapping paper hangers that’s suppose to keep it all organized, but I’ve run out of room now that the Christmas paper is in the mix. It had plenty of room for the 4 rolls of birthday paper I keep on hand, but the Christmas paper had to be stuffed in the corner of the closet where it got ripped… I’ll be working on “installing” this in my closet this week! Thanks!

Great! I’m glad you found it helpful. Let us know how it works for you, both installing it and using it. I always love being able to pass on zero-cost, DIY organizing solutions to clients, but only if they actually work!

Awesome idea. I wonder what else I could put up there….

I know, I was thinking the same thing. Let me know if you come up with something! Thanks for commenting.

Love it! Our wrapping paper is currently in a nice long under-the-bed clear bin. This is great!

Glad you love it. Under-the-bed storage is a miracle-worker for so many people and is perfect for stuff like gift wrap. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Great idea! I live in a small apartment and closet space is non-existent. I have gift wrap in three different locations and I often forget what I have and buy duplicate items. Do you recommend using wire or string?

Hi Tami, I would definitely use wire, not string. String can stretch over time, leaving you with rolls of wrapping paper scraping the top of your head in your closet. 🙂 Send me a picture when you get your giftwrap all strung up, and I’ll post it on my FB page! Thanks for reading and commenting!

Definately going to give this a try. Storage space is at a premium in our house and the wrapping paper is currently taking up some.

Hi Julie. Yes, do give it a try! Wrapping paper is so awkward and so easily bent and wrinkled that it’s hard to find a place to store it that leaves it protected but still accessible. Send me a photo when you get it all finished and I will post it on my blog! Thanks for reading and commenting.
