Day 5 - Ribbon and Washi Tape {31 Cheap & Easy DIY Organizers}

Think you have to spend a lot of money on costly organizing tools to get your house in order?  Nope!  Getting organized doesn't have to be expensive!

Throughout this series I'm sharing ideas to help you organize your home by either

  • making simple organizers with things that don't cost very much OR
  • using items you already have in a different way.
If cost has been holding you back from getting organized, now you've got no more excuses!  

If you enjoy crafting, you've probably got a stash of ribbon and washi tape rolls laying around right?  {If you're not sure what washi tape is... it's decorative tape and there are a million uses for it!}  Today I want to share 3 cheap and easy DIY ideas for organizing rolls of ribbon and washi tape so you can easily find what you're looking for when you need it.

  • This one is so simple.  Use a paper towel stand to organize rolls of ribbon or washi tape.  There are lots of versions of these stands and they range in price, but you can find them at thrift stores for very little money.

  • This idea is so creative!  Which is perfect for those of you who are crafty :)  An old shutter and some paper clips are transformed into a beautiful washi tape organizer!

    Crafting in the Rain

  • Here's another example that would work for either ribbon or washi tape.  Use a drawer organizer, 1 or 2 small tension rods, and the serrated edge from an old roll of plastic wrap to create an easy-to-use organizer for your rolls.  

I Heart Organizing

I don't have much of a stash of either ribbon or washi tape, so for now I haven't created an organizer for them.  But, if my collection grows, you can bet I'll be trying one of these!
