How to Effortlessly Organize Craft Supplies

1. Prep Your Materials

Start by gathering your materials.

Craft supply organization ideas

You'll need bins and barn wood boards, which you can find at stores like Walmart.

Organization ideas for craft supplies

Remove any twine or packaging from the barn wood boards to prepare them for use.

Personalize your boards with stencil numbers

2. Add Detail to the Boards

Using a paper number stencil, add a stencil number to the top of each barn wood board for a personalized touch.

Secure knobs to the bottom for easy handling

Then, attach a knob to the bottom of each board. If the wood is thick enough, you can drill a hole and use the screws that come with the knobs.

Attaching knobs to the bottom of barnwood boards

For thinner wood, use super glue to attach the knobs securely.

3. Mount the Boards on Bins

Use strong, thick mounting tape on the clear bin surfaces to attach the barn wood.

Position the boards on top of the bins

Press the boards onto the bins firmly to ensure a strong bond.

Best way to organize craft supplies

You can place something heavy on top or use clamps to hold them in place while the glue cures for about 30 minutes.

Organize craft supplies neatly inside the bins

4. Hide and Access Craft Supplies

With the barn wood boards securely attached to the bins, you now have a creative storage solution for your craft supplies.

Use this space to organize items that don't fit elsewhere, keeping your workspace neat and clutter-free.

When you need to access your supplies, simply pull out the bins for easy retrieval.
