12 Stunning Craft Storage Ideas That Will Make You Look Like A Genius
Craft storage ideas. We are talking about one of my favourite topics ever! It makes me giddy just thinking about it. Does that make me a weirdo?
Are you freakin’ FED UP because you are bursting with excitement to get started with a project and can never find any of your supplies when you need them?
Story of my life.
I tend to group DIY supplies by project and then mindlessly ‘hidey’ them up (jam them in any free drawer or cupboard space)… and forget.
It makes me furious at myself.
Here I’m sharing 12 of the very best storage ideas I’ve found recently, 13 if you include the picture of Poopers showing off her desk bed. I’ve also included some drawer porn for good measure. Because everyone needs to see some drawer porn (or prawns as I call it) that every once in a while.
The right drawer prawns, can inspire and motivate you (me) to sort your (my) drawers out and craft supplies!
My 3 Favourite Craft Storage ideas from this post:
1. Using a wall mounted shoe organizer for paper storage.
2. Creating a dedicated Cricut* Station.
3.Using Modular storage* inside a closet for some extra floor space.

12 Stunning Craft Storage Ideas You Will Want To Steal Like Right Now
Before we get started I want to address something, you may benefit from a SERIOUS decluttering session. If you’ve come here because you want to buy storage solutions, think whether or not you actually NEED to buy the storage solutions or do you need to declutter?
Conquer Clutter Before Finding More Craft Storage Ideas
You do not need to live in a home full of crap. Possessing items does not always lead to a harmonious living space. If you’ve been struggling with the idea of decluttering your home, you need to get yourself a copy of this guide. It helped me find my ‘get up and go’ when it got up and left. I’d ask you to trust me, but I’d rather you found out for yourself. The easy, actionable steps in this guide have been so helpful for me, and the best part was that I’ve been able to rinse and repeat to keep it all at a manageable state!
Cubby Storage For Paint
I have got the biggest girl crush on Crystal from A Pumpkin and a Princess.
There are so many beautiful projects on that blog and she is such an inspiration to me!
Ok, I will stop gushing.
In my last post all about incredible crafty storage, I featured a version of this little unfinished wooden cubby*. Having a large one that is big enough to store this paint would be marvellous! You can purchase cardboard organisers (called Tjena) from Ikea that store approx 5 bottles of DecoArt paint BUT I want one of these amazing cubbies! You can stack two and they’ll fit in an Ikea Kallax cubby. If you scroll down, Poopers will show you what the Ikea Kallax looks like in my craft room.
Modular Storage In A Closet
Kimberly, from A Night Owl blog, teamed up with Michaels Maker’s to completely organise her craft room and boy did she do a great job!I love that Vinyl storage at the top of the storage closet (under the large boxes).The storage used in the image above is very similar to my own craft room storage situation but it’s a million times messier than this!I love modular storage!
Organized Washi Tape
Kimberlyalso did an amazing job at organising her Washi Tapes!
Currently, I just use some very pretty Greengate DK tins to store any washi tape that I’m currently using and clear acrylic drawers from Muji to store extras!
There are some amazing Washi Tape Storage options on Etsy.
Hop over here to see the fab washi tape storage options there.
Craft Storage Ideas For Organized Glitters & Embossing Powders
This is some of the drawer prawns I was referring to.
The genius idea of attaching spoons inside Tupperware for glitter projects!
Can I just take a moment to say how much I love the Martha Stewart Glitter sets?!
They’re very useful for all types of projects and look fab in photographs.Personally, I can not be trusted to use glitter without covering everything and everyone who lives in my house.

Organized Embroidery Floss*
This photo began to do the rounds in 2011 and it is still doing the rounds 5 years later.
That’s amazing. Nothing lasts very long in the flow of blog land but Heather from Heather J’s Life, has done a great job at solving a problem in a super simple way!You can see why it’s still so popular.

Using Ikea products for something other than their original intended purpose excites me.
Like using a shoe organiser* to store paper!
It’s just smarts.
So I love this shoe storage turned paper storage bin!
I have a real thing about paper storage.
are were so organised. Until I stopped putting things back where I found them and starting jamming them anywhere they would fit.
I like using the Alex products from Ikeaas the drawers aren’t too deep and is great for storing paper and keeping it organised. (My paper is actually the only thing still organised in my craft room).
Super Organized Drawers
Photo John Merkl for HGTV.HGTV are always trying out awesome new tricks to try and improve our home lives – if you don’t have a drawer full of glitter and just have a few tubs, this type of organisation could be perfect for you.
Clear acrylic drawer inserts have saved me!
You can always make your own drawer organisers out of yogurt pots, hot glue and spray paint.
Organized Ribbon Basket
This dollar store ribbon organising hack is awesome. With a little gold spray paint, some dowel rods and your ribbon collection (you can find everything on Amazon), you could have some pretty storage in minutes!
You can do something similar with balls of yarn and some long knitting needles!
For some of my favourite pastel coloured yarn you might fall in love with my Etsy Page a little bit.For more yarn hacks check out: 20 insanely clever yarn hacks to make your next project easier!
Utilize the back of your doors
HGTV are at it again! Coming up with a creative, insanely practical storage solution for gift wrap & bags with this unit by Elfa.
My gift wrap supplies situation is thus; all the gift wrap I own is stored using 1 strong wooden hanger, using 2 super strong dry cleaning bags reinforced with white duct tape and hanging up in a cupboard.
Gift bags and ribbons are in the Alex drawers in my craft room.I love how the back of my craft room door looks:
So the Elfa solution above doesn’t suit my needs but it’s amazing and super practical!

Stephanie Lynne is another lady that I love a lot!
Stephanie is such an inspiration to me and I need my very own craft supply storage dresser.
This is a 6 drawer dresser that is choc full of paint pots, tools and all your favourite supplies!
