Crafting is such a fun hobby, but you can certainly build up quite a lot of equipment! Which comes with the challenge of knowing how and where to store it all.
Well, look no further: we’ve rounded up the best and most brilliant craft storage ideas to keep your crafting space tidy without compromising on style. And best of all, the solutions below can all be sorted on a budget. Start your new year feeling organised!
Keep ribbon tidy with this nifty box
Storage boxes are available for just a couple of pounds from your favourite homeware or bargain store — and they’re about to get a very clever new use.
If your ribbon is prone to run away from you, why not tidy it into one of these boxes, and allow the tail to poke through a hole in the box’s side. This way, the box will double as a storage unit and ribbon dispenser. Let your present wrapping woes be over!
Time to shelf your yarn
If you’re a crafter who loves knitting or crochet, you’ll know the struggle of having balls of yarn of all sizes leftover from projects with nowhere to live. Well, who said a library should only be for books? It’s time to make your own yarn library by stacking your yarn on a series of shelves.
Go one step further by organising your yarn within each shelf. We particularly like ordering the shelves by colour — not only is it an easy way to see exactly how much of each colour you have, but it also looks beautiful in your craft room.
Light up your craft room with jar storage
Wondering what to do with all the glass jars of used scented candles you’ve accumulated over the winter? Why not turn them into handy jars for storing beads, buttons and other small crafting supplies.
To clean your candle jar, pour boiling water up to the top of the jar. The water with melt the wax and it will float to the top. Let the water cool, then pour it down the sink, taking the remainder of the candle wax with it.
Create a beautiful storage wall
Make the most of every nook and cranny of your crafting space by using walls as storage opportunities, too. Pegboards are all over social media at the moment as a practical and aesthetically pleasing way to store your crafting supplies.
Once you’ve attached your pegboard to the wall, install hooks, plastic tubs, pen pots, shelves and lights — whatever works best for you and your crafting space. And the best thing is, if you find a particular storage unit isn’t working, just remove it from the wall and swap it for something else!
Transform an unused wardrobe
Who said wardrobes were only for clothes? If you have a spare cupboard in your bedroom, now is the time to transform it into a super sleek craft storage area.
Hang ribbon from the rails, fill the drawers with dressmaking fabric, or tuck away all your bits and pieces on the shelves. Then shut the wardrobe door and have the room back to yourself, until it’s time for your next craft project.
Give your kitchen roll holder a new lease of life
We’ve all got one in our kitchen — but who knew that kitchen roll holders;elm:context_link;itc:0″ class=”link “>kitchen roll holders were so useful for craft storage, too?
Keep fabric in a filing cabinet
Brighten up the drawers of your desk by making them a catalogue of all your favourite fabrics.
You can even add file dividers to mark what the fabrics are — and storing them vertically like this means you’ll never lose track of what you have in your supply. Plus, it means that your fabrics will stay neatly folded, ready for your next sewing or dress making project.
