Did you make a New Year's resolution to organize your craft materials? You're not alone! January is the perfect time to organize all your craft supplies — and keep them that way throughout the year! Start with something simple, like these file-racks-turned-supply-storage from Pretty Prudent. Can you believe all these supplies were once stored in a drawer?

There are plenty more ways you can tackle your crazy-messy craft room. Check out some of our favorite craft storage tips and start organizing.

Simplicity in the South
We love the idea of storing smaller craft materials like thimbles, sewing needles and even sewing machine feet in ice cube trays — and we especially love the fun star shapes. See even more craft supply organizing tips from Simplicity in the South.

Crazy Little Projects
Colorful fabric bins make craft supply storage both easy and fun. You can even add your own labels to easily find what you need. See the before and after photos, plus more detailed shots of this space, at Crazy Little Projects.

You'll never guess what this yarn is stored in. Buy a drain pipe and cut it into sections, then place the yarn inside. Brilliant! There are plenty more genius tips. You can tour an entire craft room of ideas on Craftaholics Anonymous.

Chalkboard paint label file cabinet
Chalkboard paint comes in handy for all kinds of home organizing. We love this idea from Mox and Fodder for painting a file cabinet with chalkboard paint and then labeling each drawer. It's perfect for crafters who are constantly rearranging their supplies. Find out more about the filing cabinet makeover and see more chalkboard paint organizing ideas.
