Craft Storage Ideas




My dream closet!



I don’t know about you, but my CCD craft supplies are taking over the house. Hubby says I’m hogging the closets and our guest room doesn’t look like a place anyone in their right mind would like to stay. Craft supplies can be big and bulky and can get out of control especially when you have to collect objects to make some of the crafts (example: Welch’s Grape Juice plastic containers, toilet paper rolls, glass jars, etc.). My parish craft supplies are limited so I provide most of my own for my classroom. I also have several samples of crafts to show the students so they will understand what we are making.

So what can we do? We can’t get rid of our craft supplies.

Yay! Thank you SO much for posting these lovely ideas.

We're moving in a few days, and I keep thinking, "OK, in this next house, I will be neater about where I put all my fabric scraps and yarn. Really."

I mean, really.

Thanks for sharing these ideas!

This is great -- thank you for posting this! I am big on simplicity, but it is so difficult to effectively store supplies for crafts. I will be sending this along to my wife and other elementary school specialists!
