With Christmas right around the corner, I have been stocking up on wrapping paper! My favorite spot for bright & sparkley paper is Target- they have a great selection for good prices. The dollar store is also a good spot, but I’ve found their rolls to be really small.
Regardless, I decided that I needed a nice way to store my gift wrapping goods. My condo has the perfect craft closet, but since I’ve moved in it’s really served as a junk holder.
So, I was pinspired by this to store my paper on the closet door. This frees up closet space and keeps it all coralled.
So, the first thing I did was hang an over the door hooks & basket to keep small items organized.
Then I took a stacking metal wire basket (also from Target) and attached it to the bottom of the door using command hooks. I put it slightly off center so that the rolls would not hit the knob.
Then I realized that the basket was too deep for the door to close. #Fail. So, I took everything out of the bottom of my closet.
This is my fabric hoard stash. I’m slightly ashamed, though I showed you here how fun fabric scraps can be! So, I organized everything into 4 piles- large pieces, small pieces, scraps, and ribbon/felt/special fabric.
Then I dragged out an old tupperware drawer from my other closet, and filled her up!
Much better! I have to turn the drawers sideways to fit, but I so rarely use fabric that this is totally fine for now. I love using what I already have!
Next, I added a rod to hold all the rolls in place. This was a curtain rod that I got for $2 from walmart and used in my old apartment. It is too short for my windows now, but is a perfect fit for this door. I attached the mounts using command strips without the hooks- 2 per side.
Ta-da! Now all of my paper is coralled out of the way.
Don’t mind the craziness that is the rest of this closet, it’s a work in progress and I have big visions for it!
How do you store your gift wrap?
