Yay, Yah…I know I am a little slow on getting organized but it has been COLD here in good ol’ NC and I am a fair weather type girl. My wreaths were off my windows by Jan 1st they were just laying around in the garage until I was ready to store them away. Plus, I wanted to take extra care of my bows this year and needed time to get my stuff together.
I have a traditional home and I pretty much decorate it the same way each year. 9 wreaths on 9 windows and garland around the door. I might jazz it up with garland around the railing but this year I didn’t get around to it.
The problem is every time my hubby and I pack them up in their appropriate boxes he squishes all 9 wreaths with bows and garland in one large plastic box and the next year I have to iron on my bows!! Ugh!! Who wants to iron bows?
I have come up with a solution. A bow holder to store my bows for 11 months!
I will put a plastic bag over them and hang them in the shed!! Then next year it will be a SNAP to hang my wreaths.
It only took me 4 years to figure out how to save my bows!! Maybe this will save you some trouble next year!!
