My closet is sort of ginormous. As in, like, almost another bedroom. So I use it sort of as my mini craft room. I store all of my craft supplies there and often do my crafting there, but ever since becoming a blogger my craft supplies pile is growing and I have been busting out of my space! So last week I spent some time organizing my craft supplies in my small space and I am so happy with how it turned out!
Kind of pretty looking right? Want to see the before? Don’t judge ok? It’s a pretty big mess. Hence the reason for organizing my craft supplies.
Organizing Craft Supplies (in a small space):
My closet has built in shelves which is really handy!
So here’s what I did. I emptied everything out of the closet. My room looked like it had barfed craft supplies. It was sort of horrifying.
Then I went through and sorted things by type-all the ribbon together, the fabric in a pile, paints, paint brushes, etc. All into piles on my floor.
At Target I got a bunch of cute, bright canvas boxes and plastic boxes and one cute little clear jar. Then I started putting supplies in.
I created an “adhesive” bin:
And…..all the rest of my craft paint. I have a lot. It might be nice to have it organized more than this but I just have so much that I just tossed it in:
And paint brushes in a separate container:
And then put it all on my shelf. I also have some drawers next to all of this holding patterns, sewing supplies and other random craft supplies. And I plan to do a little labeling of these supplies. But that’s for a later post.
And now I know that I need to stop going to the craft store for a while. I have a lot of craft supplies!
