10 Craft Room Organizational Tips

/ /

Since we’re in the throes of unpacking right now, I’ve been thinking about how to organize my craft supplies. I’m currently using clear plastic boxes, a set of plastic drawers, my toolbox and my sewing box to house all my craft supplies. Let’s just say that it’s super easy for everything to get tumbled up and disorganized in a matter of minutes.

I did a bit of research on Pinterest, of course, and found 10 fabulous  organizing ideas for craft supplies. Enjoy! 🙂


I love the organizational jars!!

The crate idea is one that I’m definitely storing away for future reference. 🙂

Embroidery floss storage. This is fab for avoiding knots.

Adorable thread storage. I’m going to do this!

Did your heart just skip a beat? Yeah, mine too. Love this ribbon and trim storage solution!

I adore the little buckets! And the turntable! It’s a fabulous take on an organizational Lazy Susan.

Seriously? How smart! Use a sugar dispenser to keep twine organized!

This idea is pegboard at it’s finest…and the Ball jars aren’t too bad either. 🙂

How do you organize your craft supplies?



I’m linking up to Chic & Crafty, Show And Share DayI’m Lovin’ ItTip Me Tuesday and Works For Me Wednesday!


  1. These are all fabulous ideas! I can’t wait to see what you end up doing in yours! Moving stinks, but my fave part is the re-organizing and purging you get to do at the new place!

    1. @Shona, That’s my favorite part too. We purged a ton of stuff before we moved {when we had the yard sale}. I’m convinced that helped us unpack and settle more quickly. I’m loving getting organized! 🙂

  2. Fun! The first picture reminds me of my childhood. We had backless basement steps with a few jars affixed this way to the underside of some holding such small items as nails.

  3. LOVE the wrapping paper storage! Brilliant! I have to remember that!
    And I love the last picture of the ribbon storage…genius. Seriously? Who thinks of this kind of stuff! Thanks for sharing. I need all the help organizing that I can get. 🙂
    So glad you are coming to Haven!! woohoo!

    1. @beneathmyheart, HA! Traci…seriously, I wonder the same thing. WHO comes up with this stuff? 🙂 It’s a good thing I have Pinterest because otherwise I might just be a creative dud. LOL! I can’t wait to see you at Haven too…and at Relevant which is excitingly close! Shall we squeal and hug there?! Okay, I’m going to stop now before I embarrass myself further. 😀

  4. I love the ribbon organization! Just today I bought one of those baskets and made the same kind of ribbon holder. It’s nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. My favorite is the peg board idea. I love to have stuff hanging in front of me within reach.

  5. I’ve been really trying to find a way to store wrapping paper and I’m loving the idea you posted. Even my husband is intrigued! Thanks for the fabulous find!

  6. Great inspirtation ideas! I have a couple of those pinned too! I love the look of the embroidery floss on the clothes pegs. If you get a chance, I would love it if you could link up to my party, The Creative Spark, tomorrow night. Have a great night!

  7. Love this! I will definitely be using your tips when I finish my craft room! Now if only that was sometime soon! I’m co-hosting a link party and I’d love it if you’d come link up on Wednesday at southernlovely.blogspot.com

    See you soon!

  8. I used jars to hold the twins’ pencils, markers, scissors, etc. on their little craft table, along with a crate to hold their blank paper, construction paper. I store our wrapping paper in a trunk (this way I know it won’t get squished or torn). And all extras get put into clear plastic boxes which are labeled. This has been a wonderful thing for us. Just wish I had more room to do this. 😉

  9. My heart skipped a beat several times..what great tips. I was fortunate enough to have inherited the exact set up for organizing wrapping paper when we moved into our home 7 years ago. It is a great way to keep paper from wrinkles and mashed up ends and out of the way.

    I love Pinterest. A friend gave me an invitation a few weeks ago and I was addicted in no time. Now I can stop tearing out magazine pages and putting them in sheet protectors in my idea binders 🙂

    Thanks for the great tips!

  10. Too funny! When I saw the pant hanger used for ribbon, I literally gasped and stopped mid-bite on my sandwich (during my lunch hour in my office). Then when I saw your comment about the heart skipping a bit, I laughed outloud!! Only fellow crafters understand, huh? Thank you for all the great ideas – I am definitely doing the wrapping paper storage idea (why didn’t I think of that?) and the pant/ribbon/WOW holder!!

  11. Wow, these are great – and beautiful – ideas. Makes me want to run to my hobby room and do some fine-tuning. Or go out thrift – shopping or antiquing to find some of those gorgeous blue jars. Sigh.
