Organizing craft supplies will give you more time to be creative!

If you love to craft or have an artist in the family you know that craft supplies take up a lot of space.  Proper organization is key to containing the supplies and having easy access to the item you need when you want it.

Organizing Craft Supplies

Just like any other space you are organizing, you need to decide what you are keeping and what you will toss or donate.  We are familiar with styles and trends changing in clothing and home decor but don’t be fooled, they change in everything!  Hobbies and crafts go in out of style too.


Another thing to take into consideration is that tools and items used to create and complete projects are often changing.  Make sure to store all items, cords, parts, pieces and accessories that go with each particular tool together.

Craft Supplies – Organizing Ideas

This craft cabinet/closet stores the office, school and arts & craft supplies for an entire family.  Before organizing it some of the old supplies were donated and a few were sold.  I also consolidated the contents of a desk and two other storage pieces in the home to fit all items in this area.  It looked full before but all items fit and there is even a little empty space.

The proper storage containers in various sizes were key to the success of this cabinet.  Each shelf was used to it’s maximum potential by adjusting it and using stacking containers and boxes.

When you are trying to fit a lot into a small space it’s important not to waste any of the valuable space…even an inch or two makes a big difference.   These are my favorite clear containers for projects like this.

Once items are placed in the proper containers I made the labels.  I like to use tape that is easily removable when you need to change what is inside the box.

I used gold markers for these labels, I usually use white paint pens.  Once the labels are complete put them on the containers.

With containers labeled properly to identify what is inside you are less likely to over buy products that you already have and can finally spend your time enjoying hobbies rather than searching for the items that you need to get started.
