Are your craft supplies taking over your house? Mine were too! Here are some of the best craft storage ideas out there – everything from craft storage cabinets to solutions you can buy at IKEA. There is something for every budget!
Craft Room Storage Ideas
I don’t know about you, but organization is not my strong suit – especially when it comes to my craft room.
There are just so many accessories and materials – especially since I use my Cricut Maker a lot – and they often get scattered all over the room.
I’m not joking when I say that for the last year or so, my office was just full of boxes of craft supplies, and I would spend way too long wading through them to find the one thing I was looking for.
And I ended up with way too many duplicate supplies!
Based on the number of times I see people asking about Cricut and craft room storage in my Cricut Facebook Group, I know I’m not the only one with a problem. So I thought I’d share some different ideas that I’ve found – some are more expensive, but there should be an option for every budget.
Craft Room Storage
The Original ScrapBox Company – I absolutely LOVE this company. They have the most amazing craft and sewing storage options out there. I own the WorkBox 3.0 (which they sent me to review).and it has completely transformed my workspace, and I finally know where all my craft supplies are.
They are a little bit pricey, but they are 100% worth the investment if you have lots of crafting and hobby supplies. I cannot sing their praises enough.
Their craft storage furniture has been designed specifically for crafters in mind – whether you just do it as a hobby or as a business. I absolutely love all the attention to detail that is put into all of their products. I sometimes just look at my WorkBox 3.0 now, and I think how awesome everything looks.
Long gone are the days where I dig through boxes trying to find something.
Here is a video they did of me showing how I have mine setup:
The WorkBox 3.0 is one of their pricier options, but here are a few other craft storage furniture options that they have:
Plastic Drawers – I purchased a large set of plastic drawers (THIS ONE), which has been great for keeping things organized. Mine isn’t that aesthetically beautiful, but I just stumbled across this set, that I think is beautiful! You can put your machine on top of these as well, which helps keep things picked up!
The one that I have is rather wide, so if you’d like to have smaller drawers, you could buy this one (or even buy two – sometimes it’s nice to have multiple drawers and dedicate each to a specific material!).
Organizer Cart – I love this little cart! The drawers look like they are easy to pull in and out, as well as store lots of materials, and the top is wide enough to put machines on top of.
Hang Mats – It’s important to try and keep your cutting mats mats away from the floor and other materials, since they are sticky and attract just about every loose scrap, hair, or thread that’s floating around. Hanging them on the wall with a command hookhelp keep them easily accessible but away from everything else.
Coffee Mugs for Accessories – Okay, this is just what I do, but I think it’s fun. There are so many cute coffee mugs out there – store your pens, scrapers, weeders, etc. in them! You could also use pen holders. This “I <3 Crafting” Mug would be perfect!
Jars – Mason jars, cookie jars, pickle jars…the sky is the limit with jars! You can store yarn, buttons, glue, paint…whatever you can fit. You can make some cute labels to put on them as well. Take a quick trip to your local consignment store and see what you can find. If you want ones that are a little nicer looking (and matching), I love some of the options on Wayfair and on Amazon.
Here are a couple cute ideas using jars:
Kitchen Island – You can get an inexpensive kitchen island or kitchen cart for around $100-200, and these can have a lot of great storage space for crafts. We got one from Wayfair, and they have lots of options. I think the ones with wheels are especially great.
Plastic Bins – You can get some cute ones at the Dollar Tree that are perfect for storing craft supplies. They usually have a variety of colors available. I’m sure you can get them elsewhere, but if you are on a budget, this is a great option. You can check out other Dollar Store organization products here.
Shelves – You can just be some shelving units for your office, or smaller shelves to put throughout your craft room. You can get free standing ones or floating ones to put on the wall. Shelves are essential to organization in my opinion. This is a fun way to organize paint using wall shelves.
I just loved this idea for scissor storage from Craft Remedy!
Peg Boards – These can be really helpful when you don’t have a lot of floor space as you can put them on the wall and hang hooks. I absolutely LOVE this craft peg board from Ginger Snap Crafts.
Paper and Vinyl Storage Ideas
File Folders for single sheets – Quickly organize your vinyl, etc. in file folders and then put them in a filing cabinet!
Bottle Drying Rack for Rolls – Well, this is where my two worlds collide – babies and Cricut. This may seem a bit out here, but this could be a fun way to store your rolls! This is the one I would recommend.
Door Shoe Organizer – I’ve seen a lot of people recommend having one of these. You can store rolls, accessories, etc. I think it’s great for places where you don’t have a lot of extra store or desk space for storage.
Plastic bins – This one is pretty simple…but sometimes that’s better, right?
Baskets in basket holder
IKEA plastic bag holder – I LOVE this! You can easily put them on the wall or on a door, and they should hold about 10-14 bags. If you Google “IKEA plastic bag holder Cricut” and look at images, you will see plenty of examples. They are $8.99 for one online…but if you have an IKEA nearby, they are only $1.99!
Wire baskets on wall/door – You can get ones that hang on the door or that can be attached to the wall – or you can put them into a little shelf! would be perfect for anyone who needs some compact solutions. Under shelf wire baskets
Wine rack – Amazon’s selection of wine racksI don’t drink wine, but when I saw a wine rack, I immediately thought it would be PERFECT for storing rolls of vinyl. Plus, they often look quite classy! You can check out to see if one fits your fancy!
Scrapbooks – I can’t remember where I saw this initially, but it’s a great idea. One lady said that she cut her rolls of vinyl into 12×12 plastic sheets, put them in 12×12 plastic sheets, and then put those into a 12×12 scrapbook/binder. Such an easy and smart way to stay organized!

I have seen a lot of really cool drawers and desks, but I think I’ll stick with the basics here:
