Craft Storage Ideas: Project Storage – Trendy Projects
Craft storage for your “trendy” projects & occasionally used supplies!
Hello, fellow craft storage enthusiasts,
It’s Hazel here, all the way from sunny South Africa (SA).
Today we’re talking about storing “trendy” projects, and occasionally-used project supplies.
I’m sure most crafters are like me and LOVE to give new trends a go.
The problem is, most of us can’t afford to buy everything to get a new hobby going and we don’t have the space to store all these different attempts.
Know what I mean??
I have tried beading, making flowers and brooches, paper quilling, making Christmas decorations, and LOTS and LOTS more.
However, I didn’t like any of these enough to allocate space to them in my Craft Closet.
But, I had to put them SOMEWHERE!
Today, I’m sharing some good ideas from the internet that can be adapted to suit your needs, and I’ll be showing what I do when I give a trend a go.
I love the new ‘softie’ trend.
The original kit, dies and instructions are from Papertrey Ink, but as they don’t ship down under to sunny SA, I looked around Pinterest and Etsy for alternatives.
This softie from PrettyPretty, this softie from Kkomegii and these finger puppets from FloralBlossom’s Etsy shop inspired me to come up with my own softie.
You’re welcome to hop over to my blog to read all about my project, if you’re interested.
First of all, I decided on a shape and color scheme for my softie, racked my stash for what I already had and then bought the rest.
In the end, it came down to only two black beads for the antennae.
I decided to make a bee for my best and oldest friend who LOVES gardening.
Everything laid out looked like this:
First, let’s see the ideas I found for semi-permanent storage…
I LOVE plastic containers and this Art Bin Super Satchel single compartment would fit nearly any project.

Baskets are always great and I use them a lot.
They travel from my kitchen to the bedroom closets and, most of the time, end up in my craft room packed with goodness.
These porcelain fruit baskets featured in a previous Craft Storage Ideas post look awesome.

Do you have an empty drawer and some odd bowls or teacups?
This idea from Martha Stewart looks pretty!
Re-purpose what you already have – it’s a PERFECT solution for your trend trying.

If you’ve decided on a container, why not use cereal boxes to make pretty dividers?
Hop over to iHeart Organizing and see exactly how to create these.

What about re-purposing a tiered stand?
I found the idea below at Creating Keepsakes.
A multi-tiered basket, found in the kitchen aisle, would work just as well.

What about re-purposing an old suitcase?
The finished suitcase is from Inspire Co and the post shows exactly how it was done.

And this is the idea that I used.
In our attic I stored a suitcase that my son used during pre-school and I’ve converted it into a mobile trend station!
If you want to see my finished softies and re-purposed suitcase, hop over to my blog and read all about them – I would love to have you visit!
Do you have ideas to share?
We’d love to hear about and see what you do!
Please leave a comment, and a link, if you’ve tried your hand
at storing new trends (or occasionally used supplies),
and/or if you’ve made a Softie –
we’d all LOVE to see either or both!
Thanks for looking at another craft storage solution with me.
Have a GREAT day and remember to try something new – TODAY!!

P.S. Remember, once you’ve decided if you’re going to continue with a trend, it has to be filed away in your craft stash, or purged to make space for your next trend adventure.
