You love making crafts, but your supplies can get out of control. Why not make your next craft project a storage solution? Here are a few of our favorites that you can try, or use them for inspiration!
If you already have a children’s table for artwork, tie a canvas gardening apron to it. You can use Velcro tape to attach the apron to the end of the table. The apron pockets are perfect for storing craft supplies while keeping them in easy reach.
As you empty items like cereal boxes, coffee canisters or paint cans, don’t throw them away. Recycle them for your craft storage. Cover them with contact paper, wrapping paper or even paint them. Decorate them however you’d like, and you have cute, easy storage containers. You can even glue round cans into a pyramid shape.
Fishing tackle boxes and bathroom totes make great storage containers for craft supplies as they have compartments already built in to hold a variety of tools. Plus, they’re easy-to-carry!
Some of the hardest supplies to store are the tiny pieces—beads, eyelets, small clasps, etc. Use a pillbox to make sure these don’t get lost. The lids snap shut so you don’t have to worry about them spilling.
Is that wire shower caddy just not cutting it in the bathroom? Transform it into a craft supply caddy. Hang it on the wall, and use the shelves. And don’t forget to get creative with the hooks!
6. Hanging Jars
Jars are always good for storage, but this idea is a space saver too. Screw the jar lids to the bottom of a shelf. Then, twist the full jars onto the lids.
This idea requires clear containers and lids, glue and magnets. Glue a magnet to the bottom of each container. Fill the clear containers with your craft supplies, and secure the lid. Now you can stick them up to a metal surface. Or, if you have metal supplies, you can hang magnet strips for easy access when you need them.
