Easy Craft Scissors Storage

 

I found this bunch of craft scissors a couple of years ago for $5 for the box. I snapped them up with great visions of using them in so many ways.

They got put away in a box in a closet and forgotton about.

I had good intentions and this happens to me all the time… if I don’t have things out where I can see them they never get used… but when everything is out it tends to get messy.

So this craft room reorganization has become about finding  permanent places for the things that I really want to use on a regular basis… and these scissors are one of those things.

Here’s where the scissors are going… on the side of my computer armoire that I made over a few years ago.

I removed all the necklaces, took out the existing finishing nails, measured to hang my 26 pairs of scissors, and marked points 3/4″ apart.

I found these pretty copper nails in my stash.

I hammered the nails in where I had marked.

And hung my scissors with their pattern side out.

I also nailed up a tie holder to hang the next wind chime candidates. If I keep them out it’ll nudge me to work on them, plus I love having silver pieces around to look at.

I started collecting rulers a while ago so they’re hanging along the top from binder clips. As I add more to my collection I’ll store them here until I have enough for a project that I have in mind.

So what did I do with all those necklaces? I’ll show you later in the week.

Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.

  4. I really need to use some of your ideas and start organizing all my things!

    1. If I lived closer Tina I’d be over in a Texas minute to help. 🙂

  5. That is a great idea. I would cut a small strip of card with the scissors and put one piece on each nail sticking upwards so that I could see at a glance which pattern the scissors would produce

    1. That’s a very good idea Cherie!

  6. Brilliant! Your craft room is looking amazing with all your new storage ideas!

    I love your organization of things & how you’ve hung things. I noticed the little S&P shakers on the white shelves. I have collected them for yrs. What is your intention for them/how will you use them??

    1. Thanks Linda! I have a fondness for small salt & peppers and when I feel that I can part with some of them they may be repurposed in some way. I don’t kno how yet. Right now I just like looking at them. They make me happy.

    1. Thanks Cecilia! It’s funny you should say that. My next craft room project post talks about that very thing.

  8. Great idea Tuula. Love the pretty colors of the scissors and having them so convenient to use. Mine are stuck in a drawer. Welcome to Vintage Charm link party and thanks. Love that party.

    1. Hey Pam! So happy to hear from you. I loved your candlestick collection so much. I hope you link it up this Thursday. 🙂
