In this post, I’m showing you how to utilize the walls to organize and store wrapping paper.
With the holidays coming to a close, it wraps up (yes pun intended haha) the bulk of the gift wrapping season. Here is a very simple solution to organizing wrapping paper moving it out of the way and off the floor. It’s especially great for small spaces. Utilize the virtual space in your home, ie the walls to stow away the wrapping paper until it’s needed. Consider sorting the paper into categories such as Christmas, birthdays, baby shower etc.
- 2 1/2 pocket screws
- Cut the 1×3 to 12 inches. This can actually be cut to any desired size depending on the number of rolls you plan to store.
- Drill 2 pocket holes at each end of the 1×3.
- In the wall were you plan on screwing in the 1×3 you may need to install at least 1 drywall anchor.
- Screw the 1×3 to the wall, Installing it into a stud. Given that studs are normally 16 inches apart you may have to screw the other screw into a wall anchor.
- Screw in 2 to 3 cup hooks above the 1×3 at least 12 inches apart, separating the j hooks by about 8 to 10 inches.
- Using the jute, tightly run the jute from one end to the next. The actual tension will be determined by the actual number of rolls you are going to be installing.
- Cut the excess string and load the wrapping paper onto the shelf. You can organize the wrapping paper per shelf by category such as Christmas or birthday or decorative.
