If you're a crafter, you know that having a tidy, well-organized craft room is a must. Not only does it make finding crafting supplies easier, but it also helps the creative juices flow. Of course, keeping your craft room spick and span can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you don't have a lot of storage space. But never fear—with a little bit of effort and some upcycling, you can declutter your craft room and reclaim your creativity! Learn how to organize craft supplies in 8 easy steps here!
How Do I Declutter And Organize My Craft Room?
A cluttered craft room can be frustrating and overwhelming. You know you need to declutter, but where do you even start? Here are our top 3 tips on how to organize and declutter craft supplies.
Start By Purging Your Craft Supplies
What is the first step to decluttering your room? Purge your supplies. Go through everything and get rid of anything that you no longer use or that is damaged beyond repair. Once you've sorted through your supplies, put them into categories, so they're easy to find when you need them. For example, you might have a section for stamps, stencils, dies, inks, tools, and so on. This will help you stay organized and make the most of the space in your craft room.
Invest in Multi-Purpose Furniture and Upcycle Old Stuff
One way to make more space in your craft room is to invest in multi-purpose furniture and upcycle old stuff. For example, an ottoman with hidden storage can be used as a place to store 12x12 patterned paper, cardstock, and other large or bulky tools. A coffee table with drawers can hold tiny bits and bobs, stickers, washi tapes, and more. An old mug can hold paintbrushes, pencils, alcohol markers, etc.
Get creative with your furniture choices and look for pieces that can serve more than one purpose.
Use Vertical Space Wisely
Using vertical space wisely is a must-try hack for organizing craft supplies - especially if you have a tiny craft room. If you have empty walls, consider hanging shelves to store supplies or displaying finished projects.
Wall-mounted pegboards are also great for organizing tools and keeping them within easy reach. Get creative with how you use vertical space in your room, and you'll be surprised at how much more storage capacity you have!
