Small-Space Solution: Over-the-Door Craft Storage
Anyone can have a craft room with this smart storage solution!
Craft supplies never seem to have a good home. We get it. It’s hard to store awkward-sized things like hot glue guns, rolls of tape and gift wrap — especially if you want to be able to find things easily when you need them. The best solution may be something like a pegboard, but chances are you don’t have a free wall to designate as a craft station. How about a door?
Begin by mounting an over-the-door pantry organizer on your desired door using the provided hardware. As far as organization layout, it is completely up to you and your needs, but we do have some helpful tips and tricks.
Long tubes of wrapping paper are hard to store without potential damage — until now. Just mount a lower wire basket to the brackets and two wire brackets up top to hold the tubes in place. You can even clip your gift bags to the top so you always know where to find them.
Hot Glue Gun
For the awkward hot glue gun and sticks, try a hanging shoe organizer and two s-hooks. The goal is to have somewhere you can slide it without the mess of the cord or holes for the sticks to slide through.
To store rolls of tape, all you need is a thin dowel cut to the width of your shelves and two small s-hooks. Just put the hooks in place, slide the tape onto the dowel, and secure on the other side.
Pens and Pencils
To wrangle pens and pencils, just use some plastic cups. Separate them out by color, type or how frequently you use them.
Top this craft station off by hanging scissors by s-hooks near the top so they stay out of reach. Or, if you use the door frequently, carabiners or o-rings may be a sturdier option. Lastly, keep all your beads and small items together where you can see them with magnetic tins with see-through tops. The rest is up to you!
