We all work more efficiently when we’re organized, and crafting is no exception. Whether you have an entire room dedicated to your DIY craft projects or a corner nook in the basement, there are many ways to keep your crafting supplies organized and accessible - with both function and fashion!
Easy Storage Solutions
Clear plastic storage bins are a great organizing solution. They come in a variety of sizes, and you can easily identify what items are stored inside! A small shelving unit with cubbies will provide several storage areas and doesn’t take up floor space. Woven baskets, canvas containers and wooden crates are a stylish addition and easy to rearrange when needed. Here is an example of smart craft storage from The Container Store.
Clever and Budget-Friendly Ideas
Peg boards are versatile and a great way to store tools, and you can pick one up for an affordable price at your local home improvement store. Spice jars and plastic medicine containers are perfect for small embellishments like buttons and rivets. You could even use a plastic bath tote to keep your most used supplies tidy and ready to travel with you wherever you go.
