Organizing your craft supplies can be an arduous task. If you're like me, your yarn stash may be getting a bit out of control. When my boyfriend's mother learned that I was knitting, I started receiving boxes and boxes of yarn in the mail the very next week. Before long, it became clear I needed a yarn storage solution that was both pretty and useful.
Today, I want to share some of my favorite storage ideas with you so your stash doesn't end up taking over your house!
Wall of Yarn
Diane shared this shot on her Pinterest board of a friend who bought inexpensive plastic cubes and mounted them to the wall around the sofa where she sits to knit. What a great use of vertical space!
Country Living Magazine
Simple Wall Hooks
For this special attic-to-kids-room makeover, the design team at Country Living Magazine hung skeins of yarn on the wall with hardware store hooks, using the yarn colors to liven up the room.
Coffee Can StorageThis is a brilliant tutorial on how to turn coffee cans into clever storage. The yarn looks great inside and you can decorate the outside of the cans however you want, so it's a win-win!
Peg Board WallLorna installed a peg board wall for her yarn storage after being inspired by Jill at the Dapper Toad. After you rewind the skeins into balls that have the end of the yarn easy to pull from the center, you could actually pull up a chair and knit right from the wall!
Custom-Built Diamond CubesTara's handyman husband built these diamond cubes from plywood and mounted them above her desk. It didn't take her long to fill it up!
Repurposed Wine CabinetPrudent Baby brought us this clever storage idea. This wine cabinet wasn't being filled up with wine, but now it's filled up with gorgeous yarn. I love this!
Accordion Wine Rack
Amanda used a small accordion wine rack to hold a few skeins of yarn on the wall of her craft room, close to her cozy chair.
Cardboard TubesAnn Marie made round cubbies from sections of Sonotube, a rigid cardboard tubing used to pour concrete pillars. I would love to do this on a larger scale for maximum impact!
Sharon was thrilled to finally find a good use for all the empty cardboard magazine holders she had been holding on to for years!
