Spring Cleaning – Tips For Organizing A Small Craft Closet

Recently I mentioned one of my goals in 2017 was to get more organized. Today I am thrilled to say I have tackled my craft closet with the help of Tidy Living who sponsored this post.

I realized that unless I had the proper supplies to get organized, I was never going to be able to stay organized! I put this craft closet together a few years ago but really didn’t have anywhere to put all of my craft paper and supplies. So I basically just used the desk area as a catch all. With just a few items from Tidy Living I was able to add a ton of storage into a tiny space. Here is what I used:

The hanging organizer is really perfect for craft supplies. I was able to store all of my paper, Big Shot Dies, acrylic paints and miscellaneous craft items in this vertical space, which was wasted space before.

This old cassette holder is so convenient for storing all of my stamp pads. I’ve had it for a few years and it really makes a difference. I was a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for a few years and still love to stamp and make cards. My rubber stamps are organized and the top shelf received added storage with plastic bins.

A cheese shaker is a great way to store twine!

These Burlap bags are great for organizing my Cricut Vinyl and wrapping paper.

This 6 cube organizer is seriously a game changer for me! Not only does it include 3 deep cubes for storage, but it was so easy to put together. That is a big deal to me. There is nothing worse than taking something out of the box and having 4 pages of instructions. This requires no tools and I put it together in about 20 minutes!

Another happy surprise is my Cricut Machine fits perfectly on top of this organizer, which is very sturdy. I really had nowhere to put it before. Now I am able to keep the Cricut supplies in this organizer as well. It makes such a difference to have a place for everything.

The wire baskets fit perfectly in one of the cubes and hold my ribbon, which I kind of love!

The baskets also fit great in the open shelves and hold my fabric stash. Lastly, I want to point out that while I would love to have a dedicated craft room, it’s important to make use of what you do have. Just a few items from Tidy Living really made a huge difference in my craft organization.  I can’t  wait to use items that I forgot I even had!

Great tips, I have a whole room to get organized! I know I just need to jump in and do it, but I keep putting it off (or, rather, I keep finding projects to do instead of cleaning it up!) #HomeMattersParty

You did a super job of organizing your craft closet. I, too, have a craft closet (not a craft room). It has been in chaotic disarray for over a year, now. I open the doors only long enough to grab materials and then take them to the kitchen counter to work on a project. NOT a good situation. Your post is inspiring -- I need to get to work on organizing my craft closet. Thanks for the suggestions regarding storage solutions!
