Craft Organization Ideas are plentiful on Pinterest, but some of them look complex and overwhelming. Who has time for that? I know I don’t! No need to worry because there are many simple ways to organize your craft supplies.
Why should you organize your craft supplies?
Simple, like a cluttered pantry you may go months without realizing that you had a certain supply hidden in the back only to buy duplicate supplies. Happens to me all the time. I didn’t know I had that…
Also, if you are slightly OCD like myself, you find that too much clutter can fog your mind and halt your creativity and focus.
When things are organized, I feel better and the space seems less chaotic.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many days I don’t have time to organize and clean because of a toddler that seeks my undivided attention, but for the most part I try my hardest to keep my craft supplies organized and put way up high so little fingers and my dog don’t discover a haven of new toys.

Install the IKEA Kitchen Wall Storage Unit
This IKEA product is originally for kitchen supply storage, but perfect to organize markers and paint bottles.
Supplies shown for this setup:
Use an over-the-door shoe organizer to hold craft supplies
An over-the-door shoe organizer is the perfect option to store and hide craft supplies because it’s see thru and easily accessible. I also use a hanging shoe organizer within the closet to hold my vinyl, iron on, and contact paper rolls.
My craft room also acts as my office, so I have the ClosetMaid 421 Cubeicals 9-Cube Organizer to hide larger supplies such as my camera equipment, photo props, and books. (Yes, books still exist!)
Don’t forget to include a few of the Sorbus Foldable Storage Cube Basket Bins to add color to the shelving unit and for maximum storage. I also added family picture frames on top of the shelving unit.
