Many of our readers have told us that they picked up new crafting hobbies during the pandemic, and now they’re taking on bigger projects that require more supplies. Whether you’ve just started knitting a thermal blanket or you’ve mastered one of our easy sewing projects, it’s helpful to have a designated storage space for all your craft supplies. And while I love looking at Pinterest craft rooms as much as the next person, it’s not a realistic storage solution for most of us.
Luckily, there are plenty of craft storage ideas out there that will suit your space (however small!).
Here are our favorite craft storage products to help organize your space. No more putting away this week’s project on the kitchen table!

Ideal for small craft supplies: 4-drawer storage box
This 4-drawer storage box is ideal for small craft items like embroidery floss, paints or paper craft products. It’s small enough to fit on a closet shelf, so it’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of storage space or is just getting started and may not have a lot of gear yet.
Best Stackable Storage: Stackable Storage Drawers
This stackable storage unit is one of our favorites because of its customization. You can combine as many sets of drawers as you want to create one large storage center, and you can easily add more as you collect more supplies. With all the different drawer sizes available, you can customize it to your exact products, and the transparent drawers make it easy to see what materials you have so you can reach them quickly.
Ideal for small spaces: Stackable mesh drawers
This mesh drawer storage unit is ideal for medium-sized craft materials like skeins of yarn and rolls of vinyl. The drawers come in different sizes, so you can organize them accordingly, and the mesh material makes it easy to see what you have without looking too cluttered. These are a bit more expensive, but they come as part of a storage set, so you can add matching pieces if needed.
Best Portable Craft Storage: Craft Storage Cart
If all you have is a little extra space in a closet, this little rolling craft cart makes great use of that space. It has drawers, shelves and rods on the side to hold all your ribbons or tape. And the pack compartment is long enough to hold all your wrapping paper! Simply deploy it when you’re ready to craft and return it to its hiding place when you’re done.
Best Portable Workspace: Sewing Cart with Workspace
If you like the idea of a portable DIY cart, but need a little more storage, we like this option because it doubles as a workspace. It has deeper drawers to hold bulkier supplies, as well as stacked shelves so you can easily see what materials you already have. It has storage on both sides for rolls of paper, tape or ribbon, and a flat workspace on top so you can create from any room in the house. It takes up quite a bit of floor space, so you’ll need a designated area to store it when you’re not using it.
Best for a DIY Closet: 4-Drawer Chest
For out of sight storage of bulkier materials, consider creating a designated craft chest of drawers that can sit in a closet or extra bedroom. It’s the one I use, and I like that I can store all my supplies in one place without them being moved around my apartment. My Cricut fits in the bottom drawer, and the other three drawers are organized by craft material.
