On Monday, I showed you the latest updates of my craft room now that it’s painted and organized. I have some DIY projects yet to do but I’ll get to them eventually. I’m just glad to have a space that inspires creativity and looks clean and put together!
Today I want to show you a couple of quick projects that I’ve already implemented in my craft room. They are super easy – check this out:
Let me show you the pennant banner first.
So, I used to sell Thirty-One (if you don’t know what that is, it’s bags and stuff), and I had a bunch of old fabric swatches that I wanted to do something with. I picked the brain of one of my bloggy besties, Bethany, and she suggested a banner, so that’s what I did!
Seriously, I had a bunch.
First I laid them all out until I was satisfied with the patterns in a certain order.
I cut each swatch into a triangle shape, then found some grosgrain ribbon to use along the edge.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon to each triangle.
I left some of the grosgrain ribbon hanging on each end, and added a little bit of satin ribbon to dress it up a bit. Then just hung them on each window!
Cute, right? I’m quite pleased!
Then there was the issue of all of this:
And all the other craft supplies that had not even made their way into the craft room yet…
I hit up the local dollar store and found these bins:
I pulled out my plastic zipper bags to further sort some of the smaller craft items.
Then I started sorting. Every bin is for a different type of craft supply, like this:
- Adhesives – glue guns, glue, Mod Podge, glue dots, etc.
- Kraft items – tags, boxes, etc.
- Wood items – clothespins, frames, etc.
- Foam items – cones, balls, blocks, etc.
- Stamps & stencils
- Twine & tape
- Scissors & punches
- Kid’s craft supplies – fuzzy sticks, foam sheets, googly eyes, etc.
- Glass & ceramic items
- Floral embellishments
- Miscellaneous craft supplies
I also used one of my large plastic bins to hold my larger scrapbook items, like the long sheets of stickers and other embellishments:
Finally, I had to find a better way to store my ribbon. I took it out of a wall-mounted ribbon holder and put it in bins that I can grab when I need it.
Organized by color…because I’m OCD. 🙂
I have two smaller bins for ribbon as well – one has my large wired ribbon, and the other holds my ribbon scraps.
So there you go! That’s all I’ve done in my craft room up to this point. I have a lot planned, though, so stick around!!
