Craft storage ideas for small spaces
How do you store a lot of things in a small space?
The key to storing a lot of crafty things in a small space is being very intentional with the craft storage pieces you chose. You need to purposely think about what needs to be stored and pick items that accommodate those items.
Example if you need to store 100 acrylic paint bottles then you need to find a piece that fits in your space and stores a 100 acrylic paint bottles. This could easily be accomplished with a cabinet and having racks on the cabinet doors to store the paints.
How to organize art supplies in a small space?
Organizing art supplies in a small space requires you to think in depth about what you want to store and where. You have to be intentional with storage pieces that you select and think outside the box. If you need to store 100 acrylic paints, but don’t have a space for a cabinet maybe a basket or faux book boxes would be a great option. You just really have to look at what craft supply(s) and where it could or should go.
How do you store Cricut machine and supplies?
I often hear that people with small spaces are unsure of where to store their Cricut machine. Now this is a tricky storage item and where I think most people have a very hard time is that they think it has to stay in a constant position for everyday use. Unfortunately, most people do not have a spot to keep their Cricut just out in the open.
There are always the options of cabinets, tables or storage carts. Honestly though friend my cricut is stored in my cabinet. Yes, put away in my built in cabinet safe from my children’s sticky fingers.
If I left my Cricut out with four kiddos and multiple other children(nieces and nephews, kids friends) in and out of the house all the time my Cricut would be full of Cheerios and chocolate milk.
When I need it, I pull it out(yes almost everyday) and I craft away at the kitchen table. Which is the perfect large workspace with plenty of open space behind and in front of the machine. Then I safely put it away and out of reach(harms way) back in its cabinet.
It’s completely up to you. Just consider the best option for you and your Cricut and see if that is a realistic idea. For me it’s the cabinet and that may change in the future when my kiddos are older, but we will see.
People can get really caught up on the idea of having a design for their craft space. The design idea can become almost crippling to some as they can’t get past thinking about what to do.
Lets make a craft space design idea together right now. Get a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Take about 10 minutes to consider what you have to store and where you want to store it. Now take another 10 minutes to consider pieces that could accommodate those needs. Look at what you have first and then consider what you need to purchase. Now take a few more minutes and write out your plan consider what to store, where and with what. Create a wish list of items needed to finish out your space. That’s it friend you now have a personalized craft design for your space.
Stuck on what to organize with? Don’t worry. There are more storage ideas further down in this post.
craft storage ideas on a budget
The best craft storage ideas for a budget are FREE ones. Look around at what you already have. Can they be repurposed for craft storage. Cardboard boxes, baskets, plastic bins, drawers, tables, pieces of furniture, closets, cabinets…….? Get creative and really take a good look around.
Next consider checking out local thrift stores, yard sales and online sales(like facebook yard sale groups or the let go app). Only consider pieces that fit your needs from your design idea we created together above.
Once you have exhausted these options next move on to sales or just flat out good deals. Be purposely with your money and remember what you need to accomplish with the pieces that you pick. It is so easy to get distracted and pick pretty items that are not ideal for your space.
Here are a few great items to consider. Click pictures for more details.
craft storage furniture
How do I organize my hobby room?
How you organize your hobby room depends on what hobbies you want to complete in your hobby room.
For me personally I prefer all of my crafts nicely stored away in furniture pieces and my craft desk a blank slate that is ready for me to create anything my heart desires.
You may want all of your Cricut supplies out and ready to go or your water markers always ready and on hand for bullet journaling. You need to really think about what is important in your hobby space and create what brings your heart joy.
Craft storage cabinet
I love craft storage cabinets and craft tables. I have a whole post with tons of options and things to consider when creating your ideal craft design layout. Check out Budget Friendly Craft Desks with Storage and More Here.
There are an infinite amount of new craft storage ideas using unexpected items. You just have to think outside of the box.
Check out some of the recent newer craft storage ideas I have implemented in my home. I recently stored all of my fall acrylic paint colors in a van shoe box from back to school shopping. I love keeping my hot glue sticks in an old cleaned out Kraft Parmesan cheese container. Buttons, pom poms and other small items go in cleaned out Bath and Body Work’s glass candle jars. Dollar Store small containers are also amazing.
My Cricut cutting mats are hung on the wall with small command hooks. Twine and ribbon are in pretty baskets that were in the dollar section at Target. I am always on the look out for something awesome to store crafts with. Get creative and think of random things you can use to create DIY craft room storage ideas.
Note: I also use an antiqued buffet from a local thrift store to store tons of craft products(paper, card stock, glue, hot glue gun, pens, markers).
