It's always fun to have a ton of craft supplies to experiment with, but finding a place to store them all isn't quite as fun.

They work for small spaces and they'll help you spend more time crafting and less time finding your supplies (or running to the craft store to buy more).

Attempt the Pegboard Solution
The great thing about a pegboard is that you can add it to any wall in whatever size makes most sense for you. Pegboards are equally great for storing loose items like scissors or tape and small hanging baskets, and even organizing wrapping supplies like ribbon and rolls of gift wrap.

Hang Hooks Inside a Door
This whole closet is a crafter's dream, but something as simple as a few command hooks behind the door can make a world of a difference when it comes to organizing scissors, paint brushes, or washi tape. We love door storage because it's otherwise wasted space.Continue to 5 of 15 below.

Upcycle a Cassette Holder
This is such a clever way to upcycle a cassette holder you might find at a thrift store. A bit of brightly striped paint breathes new life into the vintage item, and it just so happens that many bottled paints are the same length as a cassette tape.

Combine Shelves and Pegboards
Attaching shelving to a pegboard is a clever way to keep your craft supplies organized and spare your walls from a ton of holes. Dowels are a smart way to store rolls of paper (you don't even need to take the rolls off to cut the piece you need), and spice racks are a cute way to hold paint and thread.Continue to 13 of 15 below.

Use Drawers for Storing Craft Supplies
If you're lucky enough to have some extra drawer space in the kitchen or in a spare dresser, it's a neat way to store crafts in a way that's still accessible to kids. Smaller organizers inside the drawers help keep everything in its place.

Go Vertical With Tall Basket Storage
If you have rolls of wrapping and craft paper or bolts of fabric that are always unrolling, try using a taller storage basket to keep them all upright. A metal one works well, but so does something as simple as a clothes hamper.
