Are you looking for a simple way to organize all the wrapping paper you have leftover after the holidays?
I was too, up until a week ago that is.
I’ve accumulated so much wrapping paper throughout the years, especially holiday paper. I never feel as if I have enough so I always end up buying extra.
So I took a look at what solutions I could find online for wrapping paper organization but I couldn’t find anything that would work for me.
Luckily, I came up with an idea after a trip to the dollar tree.
It’s very simple…
We like simple and cheap, right?
Hang the wrapping paper on a hanger using clothespins!
Ok, Let’s jump right in…
Here we go…
A Simple and Cheap Way to Organize Your Wrapping Paper
Here’s what you’ll need:
A hanger, clothespins and of course the star of the show, all your wrapping paper rolls in need of a home.
I used a slim, non-slip hanger because I already have those at home but you can use any hanger that the pins can easily clip onto.
FYI: The dollar tree has large packs of clothespins. I love that store!
Clip all the wrapping paper onto your hanger using the clothespins.
You may want to hang up the hanger somewhere while your clipping the rolls on. This will just make it easier. I used a pull-up bar we have in the kitchen entrance and got up on a small step stool to easily reach the hanger. You can also try hanging it up in a closet or a shower rod.
Be sure to clip the rolls up high enough that it’s over the hanger and far into the clothespin. That’s so that the clothespins have a good grip on the rolls and they don’t fall off.
I actually pushed them up even higher after taking this photo because one roll fell off. After pushing them up as far as they could go I haven’t had any of them fall off 🙂
One Last Tip: Make sure to clip the clothespin in a way that the rounded opening is right on the hanger. That also helps secure the wrapping paper onto the hanger.
I managed to get eight rolls on the hanger but there was still space for about 1 to 2 more rolls if I just pushed everything closer together.
So there you have it. Organized Wrapping Paper!
Once you are done you can hang it up in a closet which is what I will be doing or on the back of a door using a door hook.
Good To Know: Most of my wrapping paper is from the dollar tree and target. They are not very heavy at all and most have been used up at least halfway through. If you have rolls with endless amounts of wrapping paper then this may not work for you because the rolls may be too heavy. If you decide to still give it a try I would recommend using two clips per roll.
One thing that is important to mention is how to keep the rolls from unrolling.
A few options would be twine, mini rubber bands, and twisty ties.
I used twine. I just gave it a double knot on each roll. No issues with wrinkled wrapping paper so far.
FYI: If you want to use mini rubber bands instead you can find them at the dollar store like I did here by all the hair accessories.
I couldn’t find twisty ties at any dollar store which I found odd. But if you have any laying around (like in a junk drawer) you can just tie two to three together to make them long enough to wrap around the rolls. I did see them on Amazon for about seven dollars but they were a pack of about 100. That’s a bit much for this project unless you have the largest and coolest wrapping paper collection ever. Then by all means, check out Amazon for twisty ties 😉
