How to Store Christmas Lights

Putting up your favorite Christmas lights is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. However, getting them out and untangling them first can seem like quite a daunting task. Because of that, allow 5-Minute Crafts to show you some simple methods for storing your Christmas lights, also ensuring they’re ready for when the next holiday season comes around again.

Method 1: Make a cardboard cutout.

Step 1: Grab a piece of cardboard and cut it into the shape of an anvil.

Step 2: Now, wrap your Christmas lights around the middle section of the cardboard you just cut out.

Step 3: Lastly, tuck the lights’ plug underneath the cord strands to keep everything in place.

Method 2: Use a clothing hanger.

Step 1: Get a clothing hanger, preferably a more sturdy one, but plastic hangers can work as well.

Step 2: Next, start wrapping the Christmas lights from one end to the other around the hanger until you reach the last few inches of cord.

Step 3: Finally, grab the leftover few inches of cord and tie it around the hanger’s hook.
