DIY: Wrapping Paper/Craft Supply Holder!

I've accumulated quite a bit of craft supplies over the years,
and I'm pretty serious when it comes to organizing it all.
But I'm always on the hunt for new and better ways,
especially when it comes to storing wrapping paper.

I recently saw a few ideas to use over the door shoe holders,
and after wrapping a gift for someone recently,
I realized it was time to upgrade my current wrapping paper storage,
so I created a super easy DIY Wrapping Paper/Craft Supply holder.

Take a look at how easy this was to make!!!

The Goods:
Over the Door Shoe Holder

Since I wanted the wrapping paper to be at the very bottom,
I knew I'd need to use the three lowest rows of the shoe holder.

The pockets on the lowest row are kept as is to hold the paper in,
but the 2nd and 3rd lowest rows become loops instead of pockets.
Do this by cutting across the bottom or each pocket on those two rows.
As pictured above, you'll now have an opening at both ends of the pocket.

Now just simply hang over a free door
and fill it with wrapping paper and other craft supplies!

I was SO happy to find a clear/plastic over the door shoe holder for a few reasons.
It made cutting the bottom out of the 2nd and 3rd row pockets super easy,
because this type of plastic tends to cut easier than fabric.
AND since it's clear it's so easy to see all your craft supplies!


  1. Love it! I'm always looking for new ways to get organized and this one is a great idea! I use a clear pocket shoe bag to store my scarves and gloves in too. Works great!

    1. Thanks! What a great idea for scarves and gloves!

  2. Such a creative idea! We even have one of those same over-the-door holders that used to be for the kids legos. Now I'm eyeing it for gift wrapping storage!

    1. Thank you! Lucky you, yours will be free! It's so simple and probably took me less than 5 minutes total!
