A number of people have asked me what they should do with all their Pet Society Christmas tree ornaments after they take down their trees, since many ornaments cannot be sold, gifted or recycled. Momo hasn’t taken down her tree yet, and I generally leave mine up through mid-January; however, here are some tips for hiding your ornaments whenever your pet decides to take down her/his tree.
Since there are so many ornaments, leaving them in your pet’s inventory means you may have to scroll through pages to find other items. If it bothers you to scroll though ornaments in your inventory and you need an alternative, then I think the best option is to hide the ornaments behind furniture or decorations in your house.
Hiding the ornaments takes a bit of experimentation because of Pet Society’s layering issues. First, place an ornament on the floor. Then, test and see which items can be placed in front of the ornaments. Alternatively, you try dropping an ornament behind an item to see if the ornament layers behind or in front of the item.
Here’s Momo’s pile of ornaments:
After putting the verdant shrub in front of the pile, all of the ornaments were completely hidden.
The following items can be placed in front of the ornaments to hide them. This is not a complete list, since I just tested a few options, but it may give you some ideas:
verdant shrub, orange tree, as well as other plants and plant pots
world traveler suitcase
Moulin Rouge miniature
I thought some of the larger pieces of furniture would work (like cabinets), but they layer behind the ornaments and can’t be used to hide them. Toys can also be placed in front of ornaments, but I wouldn’t recommend using them, since your pet may pick up the toy and move it at any time to reveal the ornaments.
If you want to save your tree for next year, then Christmas/holiday trees can be placed in your pet’s garden (or as part of an outdoor scene in another room in your pet’s house) all year round. They look nice as pine trees.
I hope that helps if you’re not sure what to do with your Christmas tree and ornaments now that Christmas is over! If you have any other tips, do share them in the comments.
