Does your craft supplies resemble a train wreck? Most homes have their craft supplies in a small designated area, yet after enough time, they end up with more supplies than space. Here are some ways to organize your crafts better with a tiny space, and have room left over when you’re done!
How to Organize Craft Supplies in a Small Space
We love creating fun and unique crafts. Whether it is something simple like this Homemade Lavender Shower Melts idea, or a fun and easy Rustic Floral Wreath for the front door, keeping supplies organized is a must!
Working with a tiny storage area for your craft supplies, this is the most important thing you can do to organize. Any craft or supply that no longer has any purpose or is worn past use, it’s time to part with. Once you get rid of the clutter, you will have a better idea of what supplies you carry, and figure how to organize them better.
You can organize your larger supplies in a shoe organizer while placing it on the back of a closet door. This way your supplies are out of sight and every supply has its place.
You can make a nice storage area with built-in storage cubbies. With larger storage bins on the bottom and smaller on the top, you can really make a great looking craft center.
When you have lots of supplies sprawled out in several containers and storage cubbies, you can waste a lot of time hunting, and pulling everything out. When you’re using storage cubbies, have each compartment labeled. This keeps you from digging through all the drawers and make an even bigger mess.
Use open containers
Certain containers left open will make it easier to see what you have and make it easier for you to grab and put back. You can even make it look pretty too. For example, separate markers by colors, to give a better presentation.
Tackle boxes/Kaboodle box
Tackle boxes can be used for just about anything, not just your fishing gear. Tackle boxes and kaboodle boxes are the perfect solutions for your smaller crafts, and it doesn't take up much space. You can put each type of supply in separate compartments.
Organizers are very similar to the tackle box, with many different sized spaces to put your crafts. Some organizers have the perfect sized space for your colored paper, while some organizers compartments are just big enough for an eraser.
These are a number of ways to better organize and utilize your craft supplies space. Which ideas will you use in your home? What other ways do you organize your craft supplies, that might not have made this list?
