Storage for crafting supplies is always at a premium and if you use tons of ribbon, you know how difficult storing it can be. I'm Kelly from Under a Texas Sky (underatexassky.com) and here's my solution:
We built a new house in June 2015 which included a fabulous craft room space. I was trying to find an innovative way to store all of the ribbon I use for my custom wreaths. While wandering through Lowe's looking for kitchen accessories, I saw some wire spice racks (the kind that attach to the back of a cabinet or pantry door) and inspiration struck. So I bought one. When I got it home, I kind of propped it against the wall and set a roll of ribbon into the top shelf. IT WORKED! I had my husband (who is lovingly known as The Mean Man) attach six of them to the wall, two columns, three on each side, leaving the same space between racks as they had between each shelf.
We attached a grid wall next to the racks to hold brackets to store wreath forms and other hanging items and then I loaded them up. The result is fantastic!
Here's a close up of the filled racks.
Now, you can't really store ribbon rolls with a really wide circumference, but for average rolls, this is a great solution.
