Are you ready to see the best tools for craft storage and organization?!
Using pegboards to hang craft supplies from the wall is a great option for rooms with limited space. In addition to using hooks to store larger craft supplies, like wrapping paper or craft paper, you can also add baskets and bins to store smaller items like buttons, thread, or yarn.

Store your most-used craft supplies on a rolling cart so you can easily access them from anywhere. This way to organize craft supplies is especially handy if you tackle projects in a variety of locations or have kids who enjoy taking on craft projects on their own.
Every craft room needs a proper work surface and this large hobby desk does double duty by providing a ton of nooks and crannies for organizing craft supplies in addition to a large desk area. Fill the shelves with all your favorite craft supplies so they’re within easy reach when you need them.

Mobile Wrapping Station
A mobile wrapping station is a wonderful way to organize your craft room. Store your wrapping paper, ribbon, tape, bags, and decorations all in one place to easily and quickly wrap beautiful presents for any occasion.
Storage bins that tilt outward are a great option for storing small craft embellishments that may be difficult to sift through in traditional bins. Consider storing your buttons, gems, stones, or jewelry-making supplies in a selection of tilt bins for easy access.
Revolving Craft Organizer
A revolving craft organizer is a perfect place to store items you use on almost every craft project, like glue, scissors, markers, pens, and pencils. Place this revolving craft organizer on your craft room desk to have everything you need to get started on your next project right at your fingertips.
Fabric Storage Bins
A selection of fabric storage bins is an awesome option for organizing larger craft supplies, like big balls of yarn, fabric, or rolls of vinyl. They fit nicely in a variety of basic storage cubes and can add some pops of color to your craft room’s décor.
Large Glass Jars
Place some large glass jars on your shelves and fill them with pretty craft supplies to create a beautiful display that also works when organizing craft supplies.
Whether you work with a variety of papers for scrapbooking or card crafting, or you just like to collect magazines for inspiration, it’s probably a good idea to have a few vertical paper holders on hand to organize your paper products.
Make sure you know exactly what is in each box in your craft room by creating labels for each bin. A label maker is the perfect tool for making a bunch of pretty labels all at once.
