How to Organize Craft Supplies

6 Materials
1 Day

Do you love to craft? I do! I love it so much that I have accumulated a ton of crafting supplies. So, I decided to turn the linen closet in my condo into a craft supply closet. Woo hoo! I didn't want to spend a ton of money on canisters (gotta save that money for craft supplies) so I got crafty and made my own!

Step one is to take everything out. no judgment if you are a hoarder like me! take this as an opportunity to purge old stuff and, you know, the bag of 10,000 teeny fabric scraps.

Measure your space and draw it out. Decide on heights for shelves and make a list of supplies needed (length of boards and number of shelves and brackets)

Take this as an opportunity to paint if needed. I just used leftover paint from another room.

Add shelves! I used simple melamine shelves and metal brackets from Lowes.

Repeat until complete

Decide what to put back. Thought you'd like this picture of my STASH

Like I said I didn't want to buy a bunch of containers. So, I hoarded empty K-Cup boxes from work. I cut the top off at an angle and wrapped them in solid pink wrapping paper. I even added a label. I used square labels but then cut them in a circle with my XL hole punch just to be extra!

Here's how it looked done. SO ORGANIZED and so satisfying!

Don't forget to use the back of the door, too!

      Gosh I was thinking the same thing. I have a huge room and shelves and very large table w shelves and I still do not have room to keep it nice. I am constantly trying to tidy up because it just doesn’t look organized anymore. I need help lol. This is when it’s clean and when I just finished working on it. I keep adding to my know...i sew, sewing machine and material. Cricut... it can use a lot of stuff.... cuddle bug..all the plates. I draw.... I paint.... I JUST NEED PROFESSIONAL
