My craft room was well used over the holidays and I really needed some easy craft room organization. I can’t wait to share it with you today!
My craft room was in overdrive in November and December. You may not remember but I did a lot of crafts! If you add to that the crafts I have already done this year, then you end up with a lot of craft supplies in one room. With no place to go. Haha.
I am so happy my friend KariAnne and I decided to organize our office/craft rooms this week. My craft room needed organizing and I am even sharing BEFORE photos to share how badly it needed it.
I wanted to make sure you saw our previous butler’s pantry and kitchen organizing posts.
How to Organize the Craft Room
Before I get started, if you want to learn more about our craft room, and see the amazing transformation check out these blog posts.
Clear Out the Craft Supplies
There was a lot of Christmas decor that I had to take out of the craft room first. All of the decor and the extra Christmas craft supplies were sent up to the third floor to my craft storage room.
You might remember that I have a storage area up on the third floor for my craft supplies. I usually refer to it as my own “JoAnn store”. Basically, it is a lot of craft supplies. Like a lot of supplies.
I am going to share the BEFORE photos of my craft room. But I have to tell you one thing first. These are the AFTER BEFORE photos. This room was way worse but I cleaned it a few weeks ago.
These still look pretty bad.
Update your Organization
Over time our needs for organization change. Let me explain what I mean.
This cabinet is a amazing and I love that all of the drawers for storage of my craft supplies. Some of the drawers are blank and some of them have the wrong items inside.
Look at these two drawers. On the left the paper drawer holds post it notes. I use these everyday for my big blogging calendar. On the right, my photos drawer now holds buttons.
You should always make sure your storage is updated as your needs change.
It was easy to make new labels for the drawers. A few rubber stamps and I am done!

Organize the Shelves
Organizing the shelves was fun. Out with the red and green and in with the pink!
I love making slight changes in my room decor that go with my overall theme for our home. By adding a few pink items and some valentine’s crafts, it feels ready for lots of Valentine’s craft projects.
Keep Your Craft Projects Organized
Speaking of Valentine’s craft projects, I have plastic bins that I use to keep my current and upcoming projects organized.
The bin on the left is for some trees and the one on the right is for some pillows. These bins are always on the craft table in my room.
I am so happy how my craft room looks now. I love it.
Just so you know, I do this almost every season. My craft room needs it.
