Here are some craft supplies and storage ideas ideas to help you with organizing and storing your craft supplies.
The space under your bed or in a kitchen cabinet could be put to good use if you installed more shelving.
Thrift and flea market finds
Vintage and flea market finds make great vessels for craft room storage. It’s a great idea to turn your desk into a craft storage unit for your paints, paper and other craft tools.The convenience of this set-up is that it folds up to a compact workspace when not in use.
People often think of canning jars for storing jams and jellies, but they have a lot more potential too. Glass or plastic containers are great for storing small items like buttons, strings and other miscellaneous bits and pieces. It’s a good idea to keep an eye on what you have and place items that are low in stock out where they’re easy to see.
Store paint bottles upside-down in a craft storage bin. With gravity doing its job, you won’t have to scrape the bottom of the jar to get the last drop of paint left. And not only does this make it easier to see what color is next in line, but it also makes it easier to get the last drop of paint out., but also lets you see when one color is running low.
Storage for closets
Maximize your arts and crafts storage space by mounting a set of wood peg racks at an upward angle. Use it to store spools of thread and ribbons, as well as other things.
Arts and crafts storage spots for kids
Keep kids’ craft items within easy reach by hanging them on a cabinet or in a shelf. Attach a paper towel holder under the shelf for extra convenience, and fill it with paper-towel rolls or ribbons that the little ones can pull off easily.Clip a couple of clothespins to the strip of paper near the edge to prevent it from curling
Dividers for drawers
Utilize desk drawer space to keep supplies handy below your workspace. Combine drawer dividers and small containers to organize essentials within arm’s reach. Line craft supplies up in flat layers (no stacking) so that it is quick and easy to find what you need.
Embellishment containers or drawers
Use milk glass dishes or shallow bowls to stash sewing supplies in craft storage drawers. You can often pick them up for less than a dollar each at flea markets and garage sales. Add personality to the drawer by using pieces of milky glass.
A handy way to store small items like pins and screws is to use a pillbox. The individual sections allow you to separate similar items, while adding labels will help you remember which section is for what!

You can store your crafts with the help of common items at home, like kitchen tools. Put scissors, pencils and crayons inside a glass container that’s easy to get to. To add an extra touch of beauty to this display, you can also place a bouquet of flowers inside one of the containers.
Use recycled cans and jars
Turn your empty coffee and drink cans into good quality materials for your home and garden Wrap them up in pretty paper – instead of throwing them away! “Coin purses” are great for storing small items like pencils, buttons, pins and needles.

plastic sleeve storage

Consider saving the other side of the wall for crafts and art projects.. Suspend your tools from hooks on the ceiling or entryway by organising them with colorful ribbons.
To keep small stickers & die cuts in order, store them in a recipe box with tabbed dividers that are labeled by theme. The size of the box makes it easy to take with you and have all your supplies on hand.
Party platters and serving sets are a clever way to organize craft supplies, as you can sort supplies by category; for example, in compartments or cups. Choose one with a rotating central column so it’s easy to grab what you need from any angle.
