Protect Hanging Ornaments
During the holiday season, you decorate your house and Christmas tree with various types of ornament made with glass, cardboard, cork, and clothes. Usually, people hang it with strings. The first step is to keep these ornaments hanged in perfect condition. Kids and pets get excited to see these glittery objects near them and try to touch and pull. As a result, they fall and break.
Glass ornaments are very delicate and easily breakable when fall. Protect the Christmas ornaments with anchors instead of string to secure them tightly so that they do not fall when kids or pets try to pull the ornaments.
Used Coffee Cups
After spending prolonged party time in the holiday season, you will have a pile of used coffee cups. You can stock up these cups to keep the delicate rounded ornaments. To store them keep coffee cups in a large covered box to protect them from dust.
Used Soda Bottles
