Instead of recycling that cardboard egg carton, save it as an organizer for more breakable ornaments. “Empty egg cartons are the perfect solution for storing fragile bulbs and other small ornaments,” says Anna Moseley of Ask Anna. “That’s what I call an EGG-cellent idea!” Secure it closed with a rubber band and make sure to stow it on its own shelf or on top of the other decorations, to keep the ornaments safe. Make sure to avoid these Christmas decorating mistakes.
