If you are like me you have lots of crafts going at the same time! I have to stay organized or I would never find anything. I want to help you find a sense of organization for your supplies and I’m going to try to tackle each type of crafting I have seen my members post in my Facebook group Craft Room Organization with Laurie.
Look for your type of craft in the headers and find suggestions to organize your craft room supplies for each type of supply under that. If you have any questions, please comment and I will do my very best to help you out!

Jewelry Making Organization
I am loving the storage capacity in this organizer offered by Gems On Display. They do have other sizes available. You can find this particular one here as well as the trays. They offer free shipping on orders over $75.
For a more economical choice and if you are limited on storage then try these plastic containers from The Container Store. I personally use these. I like that they stack and the clasps on them are secure and easy to open. You can also use your Rakuten account I mentioned above, and save an additional 4%.
Here are a few more ideas to DIY and for seed bead storage.
- Find the DIY Jewelry Stand here.
- The Beadalon Table Top Station here.
- The Bead Pavilion showcases here.
I love to sew and I find that sewing items are very colorful and make for great display items in your craft room. Take a look at these clever ideas for storing your sewing items.
- The thread rack comes from SewNSuppliesDisplays on Etsy.
- The DeNOA Rolling Cart can be found here.
- The Fantastick Kangaroo Kabinet is found here.
Then there is storing the fabric
I found these awesome ideas:
- The Ikea Algot is found here.
- Click here to find Shoe and Sweater Organizers.
- Click for the curtain rod with clips and extra clips here.
- The Slack Hangers are here.
- Finally the File your fabric away is used on any standard filing cabinet (choose a size that fits with your room and the amount of fabric you have). You could use vertical or lateral file cabinets!
The ideas for the fabric storage ideas were found at the Scraps Shoppe blog.
Scrapbooking, Painting and Mixed Media
This probably is one of the hardest to categorize and organize. I use a lot of the photo boxes found at JoAnns or Michaels and I find they work the best just because of the pure volume and different pieces you can purchase. I’m going to break this down into a few different categories.
Brads, Embelishments, Stickers, Glue, Scissors, Stamp Pads, Stamps and Stencils
Find the products here:
Pens, Markers, Paints, Paper and Brushes
This by far is the messy stuff. LOL.
Find them here:
- Craft Paint Storage Rack.Spectrum Noir Market Trays.
- Pencil Case Holder.
- Houseofwatercolor.com for tubes of paint instructions.
You can purchase them here:
- Ikea Raskog
- Sunneresta plastic containers.
- Organizer Cube 4 Shelf By Ashland.
- IRIS 6-Drawer Scrapbook Cart with Organizer Tops.
Crocheting and Knitting
I do dabble in these as well but usually just to make a scarf or hat. I’m not that patient or talented like others but I do have the supplies!
Each of these can be found here:
- Yarn and Craft Organizer Shelf.
- Knitting Tote Bag.
- 104Pcs Knitting and Crochet Hook case.
- Comfort Grip or Standard Grip Crochet Hook Stand
I’ve tried to cover as many crafts as I could for Craft Room Organization. I know there are so many more. I do use the Ikea systems I spoke of in the furniture post to hold a lot of the bigger items I craft with. Like the supplies I use to make garden fairy and gnome houses and various holiday items. I will share all of that with you in my final craft room reveal!
I hope you found some ideas you can use here for your Craft Room Organization. Let me know in the comments if you have trouble finding ideas for storage and I will be glad to offer suggestions!
