If you’re a craft person it doesn’t take long for paper, glue, thread, beads, yarn, or fabric to take over your life. Craft storage is difficult because it needs to be available when you have time and out of sight when you’re too busy.
It needs to be easy to use without being in the way of your day to day life. Here are 10 products to organize your craft supplies that keep things exactly as they should be.
This may appear to be the ultimate craft table, but it is actually not for crafts and technically not a table. It is sold as a kitchen cart, and Better Homes & Gardens took it out of the kitchen and transformed it into the ultimate craft storage for small spaces. It is small enough to keep in a corner or closet and large enough to keep everything ready when you need it.
If you have lots of small pieces, Home Depot might be the place to start. This began as a garage organizer for nails and screws. A little paint and scrapbook paper, and now it’s ready to organize supplies of the slightly more feminine type.
