From fabric to ribbons, glitter to washi tape, there can be a lot of different items in your craft stash. With so many items to store, it can quickly get out of control if you don’t have strategies to organize and store everything in its place. Luckily the Boston organization experts at Closet & Storage Concepts are here to help. Here are just a few tips to help you in your craft room.

Assign a Closet

Keep everything together to make it easy to find items. Whether you have a small craft closet or a whole office dedicated to crafting, using your space and maximizing your storage can help to create a dedicated place for every item. A closet organization system, like what you would find here at Closet & Storage Concepts of Franklin, can provide you with a custom solution complete with all of the drawers and cabinets that you may need.

Get Rid of What You Don’t Need

You may have accumulated a lot of craft items over the years from fabric scraps or dried up glitter glue. However, for some reason, you are still hanging on to these. Go ahead and ditch them now. Or, donate items that are still salvageable to someone who will actually use them. If there are items you haven’t used in over a year, you can make the assumption that you are not going to use them again. Clear them out so that you don’t have to store them any longer.

Utilize Doors

The back of a door can be a great way to store oddly shaped items that are in your craft repertoire. For example, shoe hanger cubbies can be used for yarn or spools of thread. You can even try repurposing a hanger for ribbon, twine, or wrapping paper. This way, you will never lose your items in the back of a closet and you will have easy access to everything that you need.

Sort Everything

Your craft items may consist of tons of buttons, beads, colored pencils, fabric markers, and much more. Before you try to do anything, you will want to organize everything. Try recycling various containers to help you with storage. For example, empty soup cans can end up becoming a great place for you to store fabric markers. You can also use canning jars for storing buttons and other small items. Use these containers to sort through your supplies and keep items separated.

Hang a Pegboard

Pegboards are easy to hang on a wall. By adding a few different hooks and containers, you can make the most of your space, and have a home for pliers, scissors, and all sorts of craft tools. Our slatted wall systems can also work wonders to give you customization and control of your space as your needs change.
