Storing your Craft Supplies

Repurpose old jars

Jars are a great place to store your supplies and can be customized using decorative washi tape, labels, or paint.

Have a bin for everything

Use bins for storing larger craft supplies. It's an ingenious way to give you easy access to your supplies while keeping them organized.

Use curtains for design

Instead of having a supply closet with a door, use a curtain to add an element of design to the room and to keep supplies out of sight.

Be disciplined

The key to having a productive time in your craft room is being able to find things, which is why keeping it neat is imperative.

Create unexpected storage

While shelves, boxes, and cubes are typical storage for a craft room, alternatives can be used as well, such as a locker or an old dresser.

Dental Floss Sewing Kit Hack

Who hasn't had a button pop at an inopportune time? Over the weekend when my own button popped I then had to search for the scissors, thread and sewing needle which were scattered around my craft studio. That night, I finished off a container of dental floss and had an epiphany: what if I made a portable sewing kit using the empty container? It already had a built in 'thread' cutter and I could store thread and a needle all in one convenient spot! First I peeled off the lable from the face of the container.

The Ultimate Craft Closet Makeover

Please take a minute to click here to sign up for the Mother Daughter Projects weekly newsletter. You'll get notification about our new projects and what is up and coming.There is nothing more frustrating when crafting or making than knowing you have what you need, but you can’t find it! I read a quote once that stated “if you can’t find it, you don’t own it!” I think of that often when I can’t find something and have to buy again in order to start or finish a project.Although we have lots of craft/maker supplies for Mother Daughter Projects stored at Steph’s house, they were becoming more and more inaccessible due to lack of organized storage. Over Christmas Steph decided she had had enough of the mess and started to digitally put together an idea to install an organizational system into the closet in the Lego room. The closet we are working with is 86" wide x 96" tall x 23" deep.We are calling this a semi-DIY because we are not actually building anything. With the exception of cutting a few pieces of closet rod, all the other components are ready to be installed and come with all their parts to get the install done quickly.

Tiered Craft Tool Organizer

I am always looking for ways to organize my craft supplies. I wanted something that looked nice that could hold the tools I use most often. So I used two old spring form pans from a thrift store, an old lamp that no longer worked and a lazy susan to create a spinning tiered craft tool organizer.
