    If you’re like us at Style at Home, you have probably accumulated endless rolls of ribbons and thread and beads and buttons, all of which you want to keep for any new crafting projects. But, all these bits and bobs can soon clutter up your crafting space leaving you with little room to work. Thankfully we’ve done the hard work for you and have found six ways you can transform your craft room with these fab storage ideas.

    Add shelving
    If you have a dedicated craft room, pop up a few floating shelves or create bespoke shelving in an alcove. Line the wall behind with wallpaper to pretty up your scheme and keep your desk space clear by using a variety of jars and baskets to store your kit on the shelves.

    Hooks & racks
    If you have space on the wall behind your desk, why not fit some hooks and racks so you can keep all of your essential kit close to hand. A simple spice rack is perfect for storing small jars and hooks are ideal for your cotton reels.

    Jam jars
    Remember not to throw out jars or even boxes. Reuse them to store smaller crafting essentials like pins, beads and cotton reels. Why not add ribbon or a pretty label so when they are lined up on a shelf they make a decorative display.

    Fill a vintage suitcase
    If you’re short on space or your craft room also doubles up as a spare bedroom, why not turn a second-hand or vintage-style suitcase into a portable crafting station? Divide into sections and fill with your craft kit. When you’re not using it, simple slide under the bed out of the way.
