Make Your Crafting Space a Happy Place
Whether you’re a seasoned crafter, passionate DIY-er, or enthusiastic beginner, organizing your craft supplies is essential to experiencing the full joy of crafting. Apply these simple and practical organizational tips to any sized crafting space and you’re sure to be inspired.
Give it a Home
We can’t say it enough, creating a dedicated place for everything is critical for stress-free crafting. Whether you have an opulent studio space or an unassuming craft closet, this can be a game changer. Nothing is worse than hunting for that much needed tool. Invest time into giving everything a home to sort and contain your supplies.
Maximize Shelving and Cabinet Space
If things are cramped, cabinet and shelf space must be maximized. The best way to do this is with clear, stackable bins, preferably with dividers. The transparent bins give you full visibility of your supplies. Pack them with your pens, markers, brushes, glue, ribbons, and paper. Divided bins allow you to organize multiple small items into one place or group similar craft supplies that you use together.
Having easy access to your supplies doesn’t mean you have to be disorganized. If you have extra space in your work area on or nearby counters, try using a carousel or lazy susan turntable to store markers, tape, glue, scissors and all the tools you need at your fingertips. The craft supplies you need are just a quick spin away.
Use Portable Bins
A portable storage bin is perfect for staying portable and productive. The built in handles make it easy to carry everything you need from a cabinet or shelf to your space. You can also adapt your bin’s contents based on each specific project.
It doesn’t take much to get organized, but it changes everything. Crafting makes you happy, and now your space is happy too.
