  • Craft Room Organization

    Want to craft more efficiently? The key is having your craft supplies organized!  Craft room organization is key! Having a place for everything will make it easier for you to find your supplies when you are needing them in the middle of a project.

    No matter how small or big your space is, if it’s not organized, it’s going to be more difficult to make anything or just may take you a lot longer in the long run.

    As a DIY YouTuber, I can make 10 projects in a single day.  How? Well first it starts with a plan. What projects I want to make, an idea of the supplies I’ll need to make them and then I’m off and running – maybe after a good cup of coffee to get the creative juices flowing.

    Then it’s having those most used supplies in their place, and at hand so I can grab and go.

    Then, another secret, I clean up after EVERY project.  It doesn’t take long to put supplies back in their place before I move onto the next. Unless I know I’ll need the same supply for the next project (ex: glue gun), everything goes back.

    When everything has a place, it doesn’t take long to get in a good rhythm and flow.  If you make crafts to sell or even just make a lot of crafts for gifts, you know time is important! Organization will help you put a lot more of your time into your crafting, and we could all use more of that.

    I also LOVE IKEA for craft room organization.  It’s not too pricey, they usually have multiples in stock so you if you need a lot, they have a lot. Many of their things are made to work together (ie: bookcases and the white storage containers stacked on top of them). If you don’t have an IKEA you can usually find similar items on Amazon and Walmart.

    My space has the IKEA kitchen island, shelves with drawers below, plastic bins, and a rolling drawer cart.

    My space is actually NOT very large. At the largest it’s 12’x10′. However, 3 shelves a work table and roll cart holds A TON of supplies in a compact space.  I also took advantage of the wall space to amplify the amount of storage. These are great tips for your craft room organization.
