Get your craft supplies organized with these 8 Dollar Tree Craft Room Organization Ideas! I’m sharing these budget-friendly ideas to help you organize everything from glue gun supplies, die cuts, wood shapes, marker color charts and more!
If you craft you will “get me” when I say my most favorite thing to do is organize my craft room. While a messy craft room is a sign of creativity; an organized craft room is one where creativity blooms. So it’s sort of a double-edged sword.
When the end of the year rolls around and we start preparing for a New Year, that is the perfect time to start getting organized. There is nothing more satisfying than going into a New Year with new goals and a clear mind (i.e., an organized craft room).

The first place I always start when preparing to get some craft supplies organized is my Happy Planner Project Notebook. I’ve always had a project notebook but recently moved into the Happy Planner Miss Maker 2023 Notebook and I transformed it into my new craft project notebook.
You can check out the details of my Happy Planner Craft Project Notebook and past project notebook flip-through over on Youtube.

8 Dollar Tree Craft Room Organization Ideas
Recently I made a trip to Dollar Tree and found some unique options for getting a few of my craft supplies organized and I’m excited to share them with you. Detailed below is exactly what I’ve organized and how.
The latest on Youtube:
If you want a more in-depth look at how I used each Dollar Tree product be sure to check out the video above.
01. Watercolor Jars
These adorable little jars came in a few colors and I thought they’d make great watercolor jars. So I grabbed two jars and customized them with vinyl using my Cricut Explore Air 2.
I created one jar for “clean” water and one for “dirty” water. The font I used is called “BFC Blueberry Pancake” in case you are interested.
The best part is that every label was created using Cricut vinyl scraps!
02. Fabric Bin Tags
When I purchased my gold foil polka dot fabric bins from Target (which sadly they no longer carry) I also purchased their silver tone metal bin tags. The silver metal tags worked but they were kind of blah.
That changed when I found these plastic white basket label tags. They are actually for the kitchen but I just used my Cricut machine to customize them to the label I needed for each bin. Love these!
03. Wood Shapes Organizer
This organizer case was perfect for containing all my wood shapes. I even picked up a few more from the Dollar Tree (because I just couldn’t resist!).
I love having these little wood shapes craft supplies because they work perfectly in my travelers notebook journals. They are a great addition to any journaling or memory keeping spread!
04. Rhinestone Organizer
This container is typically used to organize pills. But I found that it works just as good to organize loose rhinestones!
Sometimes you just have to think outside of the box (or is it circle?!).
05. Glue Gun Caddy
The only problem was that my glue sticks were in a drawer (not near that rotating organizer). So when I found this cute little caddy I knew it would be perfect to hold not only the glue gun but also some extra glue sticks.
The bonus is I can grab it and go anywhere to craft and I’ll have these items handy!
06. Marker Color Chart
If you follow me over on Youtube you know I’m forever pulling out scrap paper to test marker colors before using them. I also recognize doing that just wastes ink. That’s when I saw the perfect solution to this problem with this spiral notebook of index cards.
Now when I do a video I can pull this out to choose my marker color. Plus, when I go to the craft store I can easily throw this little reference notebook in my purse so I don’t buy duplicate marker colors (unless I want to!). I’ve gotta say this idea was just brilliant (and compact)!!
07. Pencil Boxes
We’ve all seen these and may have even used these for school as a kid (or bought them for our kids’ crayons). But did you ever think about these pencil boxes beyond, well…pencils?
The pink box is holding my pens and pencils because my office supplies drawer needed a little more organization. But, I grabbed a second one to hold all my loose crafting bows. Now when I drop the container (which I’ve done!) my bows won’t fly all over the place!
08. Die Cut Organizer
You might be more familiar with this expandable file as a coupon catcher or holder. But I saw it as an organization tool for my die cuts!
Once the die cuts are organized into each expandable folder I can then customize the flap even more. My plan is to use my Cricut machine to cut vinyl to indicate what is contained in each folder. For example, “autumn/fall” die cuts. I will place that detail just above the “die cuts” wording.
It is my hope this post inspires you to get your craft room organized in a budget-friendly way!
