Shown above, found at a thrift store for next t nothing, I use this old cookie jar I stenciled for craft punches.

Repurposed Ribbon Storage with Chicken Wire

Tip# 1: Check retail store dollar bins.

Tip #2: Find thrift store “trash” and turn it into “treasure”.

Repurposed Bed Spring Craft Storage

One of my favorites, when my daughter grew out of her crib, I repurposed her bed spring into craft storage.

With a simple plain white canvas and large rubber bands, you can make this inspiration and memo board. I appropriately stenciled this one with “inspire”.

Tip #5: A cart with wheels adds convenience.
