The Best Ways To Organize Your Craft Supplies

Chances are, if you’re crafty and like to DIY most of your home’s decor, then you have a craft room. You need a lot of space to keep the extra strips of fabric, oodles of yarn, and crafting supplies that you no doubt have! But not everyone has enough space to dedicate a room to their crafting, and even if you do, it still may be a small space. Whether you have an expansive room or a closet for your craft supplies, it never hurts to find new ways to organize it all!

We’ve got a few fun organizing ideas for your crafts that will keep your yarns and ribbons from tangling, prevent you from stepping on a pin, and save you from slipping over beads!

First up, organizing your beads and even your pins!

We know you’ve seen the weekly pill planner containers, right? If you have extra lying around, blow the dust off of them and fill them with your leftover beads or even pins. The best part? When you need a few beads, you only have to open the specific compartment that holds the beads you need. As opposed to those bulk bead organizers where you take the top off and it’s every bead for itself!

Looking for a different way to organize sewing pins? Get a teapot!

All you have to do is use a vintage teapot, which is easy to find for an affordable price at a thrift store, and glue a pincushion on the inside of the top. When you’re not using the pins, they’re in a secure place. You can also keep other sewing or embroidery supplies inside the teapot to keep all your supplies together.

While you’re sewing, just flip the top upside down in the teapot and you can easily reach all your pins! You can find a tutorial on creating a pin cushion teapot here.

Do you always have extra yarn lying around?

An unexpected but effective way to keep that yarn untangled is to use a colander! Crazy right? All you have to do is string the yarn through the holes in the colander and it keeps your yarn from tangling – you can even use it while you’re knitting! Are you worried that your colander is too old or rusty to use for crafts? Paint it! Make it match the decor in your home or craft room and you’ll love to use it.

The trouble with the little stuff

So many small items in a craft room tend to take up a lot of space in bigger storage containers or not stored and organized at all. To organize all of these little items will take some time, but will be worth it in the long run. Grab a colorful binder and fill it with baseball card dividers. Then place like items in mini ziploc bags for easy storage. You’ll be able to grab your binder, flip through the pages and know exactly what you have on hand. This can be used for embellishments, stickers, buttons and so much more!

It’s so hard to give up a partially used ribbon spool!

But what do you do with the remaining spools. Stuffing them in the drawer usually results in an unusable mess. But check out this simple storage idea that will fit easily onto a shelf in your craft area. Get the full how-to here!
