One unique way of displaying and storing stuffed animals is to organize them on a shelf in the living room or child’s room. Decorate it with fairy lights, so your stuffed animals would look better on display.

If you want to flaunt your collection but are afraid they will accumulate dust, this fun idea is perfect for you.

Using sealed glass display cabinets would protect your stuffed animals from dust or insects that might ruin them. This is an excellent way to store children’s stuffed animals, too.

4. Hanging Buckets

You can also use wall-mounted buckets to display stuffed animals. You may use a tin bucket as it is, or you can spray paint it according to your preferred design. 

If you’re afraid your stuffed animals will be stained by rust from the tin buckets, you may opt for a wooden bucket storage system. Wooden buckets may look great and fit a Scandinavian house design. [1]

If you want to keep it simple yet with so much fun, you can try to make a corner to display (and store) stuffed animals. You can put a little round table or mini chair where you could put them and scatter the other stuffed toys on the carpeted floor.  

We recommend putting a few decorations like lights or fake flowers to make the stuffed animals’ corner more appealing. You can also fill some bean bag covers with stuffed animals and put them in this corner. Here's how you can make your stuffed animals soft again

10. Frame-Style Hanging

Frame-Style Hanging is a new way to flaunt and store stuffed animals stylishly. You can make wooden frames where you could flaunt them in one corner. This storage can be hung on your living room or kids’ rooms’ wall or along the corridor. 

You can also make a DIY door for the frame storage to seal it with glass to protect your collection and other toys.

The stuffed animal Swing-Style Hanger is like the Hanging-Thread style. However, the storage idea uses swings to store your stuffed animals. Make your kids’ play or bedroom look more serene and homey with this cute style.

Pro Tip: Wrap a ribbon on the swing rope or just add string lights so you can light it up and watch it glitter as you sleep.

12. Nordic Style Baskets

If you are into minimalist storage designs, using a Nordic style basket would definitely make your heart race. You can revamp the basket using ribbons, wooden materials, or bamboo baskets. 

Fill the basket with stuffed animals and use colorful wrapping papers to make the baskets look more stylish.
