I moved and organized craft supplies over a few days. Y’all want to see some shelf by shelf shots just to see how much I really do have? Up top we have fabric, glitter paints, yarn, and felt is all the way to the right.
The second shelf has wood surfaces, beads, bottle caps, miniatures, twine, Duck Tape, fabric paint, texture paint, RIT Dye, and washi tape.
The third shelf has clay, clay tools, miscellaneous, my Sizzix, dies, and emboss folders.
On the floor, we have a MEGA paint rack that is completely full! These were on sale from DecoArt around Christmas time and I bought one. My organized buttons, patio paint, and the hamper contains fabric scraps.
On the other side of the floor, I have smaller cuts of fabric and a shoe organizer with tons of storage. Each of those boxes is full with various craft supplies that I won’t bore you with right this second.
I also have StyroFoam running up the side of the closet.
The labels on all of my supplies are actually my latest obsession. Online Labels is one of my recurring sponsors and these labels are amazing. You can get these decorative labels from Online Labels. I just wrote on them with a Sharpie but of course you could run them through your printer. I love the simplicity of just writing on a label and not having to boot up the computer and printer. The shape of these labels is what gets me every time. They are so much better than a plain rectangle label don’t you think?
My organized craft closet is complete and it is amazing. Now y’all I need to get everything that DOES NOT fit in this closet, get it organized, and have a new craft work area as well. Y’all stay tuned as I am working on a plan for that as well. Click here to see the area I have planned for working in and to vote PLEASE! Don’t miss any of my craft supply organizing adventures.
After your birdhouse pieces completely dry, measure and mark for three holes on both birdhouse sides. Drill holes in those locations using a drill.
I knew I wanted to add some glitter to my birdhouse. I actually developed a super easy and less messy way to add glitter to anything using products from Krylon. Start with Krylon spray adhesive and spray the roof panels. Then sprinkle on the glitter until you get the coverage you desire. Shake away any excess. Allow to dry completely.
I wanted to give the wreath a silver treatment and had this Krylon Fusion on hand. One coat and my wreath was perfect.
You will need to add something to the inside of the birdhouse to cover up the front hole. I actually used a piece of one of the canvas triangles in my Krylon Mystery Box. I just used hot glue to secure to the inside.
I also used hot glue to attach the wreath and a couple of corks for a perch. This gave the front of the birdhouse a little decoration.
I placed one glitter clothespin below each of the 6 drilled holes. I used hot glue to secure each clothespin as well.
Then just open up the top, add in your twine, thread through the holes, and clip the ends. Your twine is organized and those ends won’t disappear inside.
