Sometimes the simplest storage solutions are the best ones. You need only three things to make these clever DIY storage washi tape racks for your crafty space!
My desk became the hub of the space. I’d drop all sorts of things on it as I “cleaned” other rooms. The door was often shut to the craft room – out of sight, out of mind, right?
Nope. Not when crafting is your escape. And so, little by little, I’ve been working on making my craft room an organized and efficient space.
Can you believe I’m sharing this “before?” I can’t. Gah.
Washi tape is such a fun crafting material, and I love the scads of colours and patterns it comes in. I was keeping it in a box for a while, but I’d often either a) forget about it or b) dig through it to find a colour or pattern I thought I had.
I wanted to put it on display. Enter the DIY storage rack.
Supplies needed to make your own washi tape DIY storage solution:
These hooks will screw right into your drywall, and if you’re kind to them (i.e. not using them to hold much more than washi tape or ribbon), they should be fine. If you have bigger plans for your hooks, consider anchors or a larger hook.
This set-up is perfect for washi tape width. They just fit onto the dowel, which you then slip into the hooks on the wall. If you were going to hang ribbon or larger tapes, you would want a larger hook. The depth from the wall is the most important factor to consider when you’re creating this type of hanging storage.
I love it when it works out that way.
How do you store your crafty supplies in your office? Any DIY storage tips and tricks? I’m all ears.
