How to store Christmas village houses?

You can store Christmas village houses by putting them back in the boxes they originally come in, lining them with bubble wrap, and then storing it in an airtight container and a dry place with minimal movement.

Storing your Christmas village involves ensuring that it will look as good next Christmas as it did the year before. 

Because most Christmas village sets include small, breakable buildings and accessories, storing your village properly is vitally important. 

Instead of quickly tossing your Christmas village in an old storage box, take the time to store it properly so you can enjoy it year after year.

Steps involved in storage

The first step is to keep the boxes in which your Christmas village buildings originally came. 

While this may not be possible with older pieces, you can start a trend for better preservation by keeping the boxes to any new pieces you purchase in the future. 

For older village pieces that are missing their original boxes, look for other boxes that are good sizes for those particular pieces.

The next step is to wrap each piece in bubble wrap. While it might be tempting to put two pieces together, those pieces can bump against one another and cause scratching, discoloration and breakage.

Research. Next, you should store your boxes containing the bubble-wrapped pieces in a plastic storage container with a snap-tight lid. Cardboard boxes don’t hold up well under weight, wetness or other unsavory conditions.

 Placing the boxes in a plastic storage container will keep them safe from bumps, liquids and scratches.

The next step is to store the plastic containers holding your Christmas village pieces in an area that is temperate. 

Storing your pieces in an area that becomes too hot may cause paint to melt and stick to its container or other pieces. 

If you store your container in an area that’s too cold, you may risk your pieces suffering cracks or chipped paint. Find an area that retains an even temperature throughout the year.

The last step involves you to label the plastic container in which you place your Christmas village using a black permanent marker. 

Write the contents on the top and sides of the box as well as a note that the contents are fragile in the event someone else has to move the box. 

This will help you avoid setting anything too heavy on top of your Christmas village set while it is in storage.

What to do if you do not have the original boxes stored?

You can easily buy storage boxes and even baskets of gallons worth of storage. The boxes available to store liquids are normally air tight so it is very convenient to get them if you want to properly store your village.
