I have spent the last few days organizing my craft supplies. And every time I finally do something like this, I find things I forgot I had!
I dug into every drawer and looked behind every door and opened every box in the closet that I thought might have craft supplies in it.
I didn’t want everything piled on my small desk because then I wouldn’t have room to work. So I organized craft supplies and put them in jars and baskets and boxes.
Then I put them on my little green vintage cart so I could roll it around when and where I need it. Very handy.
I wound up odd bits and pieces of lace and tied them with a bow so they wouldn’t get knotted up.
I added a little bit of fall decor here and there while I was at it.
I dug three red basket/boxes out of the closet and utilized them for organization as well. I used them to hold rolls of ribbon and lace, etc.
If you cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around bits of lace or fabric, it is simply much easier to store and find.
I put supplies in my vintage jars and then organized the lot of them in this vintage box. It will be so much easier to find what I need this way.
I like to make my crafts supplies look pretty as well as be functional, so why not use vintage boxes and jars for storage?
It just gives everything a nice themed look, and thus storing it out in plain sight isn’t a problem.
I found that I had lots of buttons still attached to cardboard. Some were new-ish and some were vintage. Not sure where I got them.
It was like giving myself a gift unearthing all this stuff I forgot I had!
I can keep my rolling cart with craft supplies back in the bedroom.
And when I’m ready to dig into a project, I just roll it in to the living room next to my desk and I’ll ready to roll!
So that’s how I chose to store my craft supplies. How do you store yours? I’m always open to new ideas.
