Storage Tube/Box for Tall Artificial Flowers

Postby Dunflittin68 » Fri Nov 30, 2018 2:38 pm

Does anyone have any idea where I could purchase a storage tube or box to store my long artificial flowers and twig Xmas lights to stop them getting crushed after Christmas and to protect them from the dust? It is one thing I have never seen in shops either here or in the UK when looking at storage boxes. What does everyone else use?

Inner rolls from wrapping paper; plastic 2l bottles with tops & bottoms cut off & taped together; try supermarkets/ florists for discarded flower transit boxes... ;-)

Thanks for those suggestions, cutting off the tops and bottoms of 2l bottles is pure genius and I would never have thought of that ! Brilliant! I was going to go into florists and ask for a tube but hadn't got a clue how to explain myself in Spanish :lol: !! That's what I love about this forum, such intelligent people! :wink:

I was wondering why you needed 21 bottles then I saw it was 2l bottles!

The flower 'warehouse' by my parents house throws out big long boxes that the flowers come in.. That would be ideal?
