wall mounted craft tool holder

In my craft room, I have LOTS of stuff to fit in a small space. This forces me to look for new ways to store my things.  I want easy access to pens, pencils, adhesives, and scissors which are some of the tools I use every day so I made this wall mounted craft tool holder.

Here are the supplies I used:

1- 1x6 scrap piece of wood
3- buckets from IKEA
3- drawer pulls
paint, sandpaper, 
screws for drawer pull and wall attachment

This is the simplest things ever.  

I painted the wood, sanded the edges a bit, gave it a coat of matte sealer, screwed on the drawer pulls, mounted the entire thing on the wall, and hung the buckets on the drawer pulls. 

The buckets hold so many supplies right at my finger tips!

It fits perfectly in my space and keeps all of my most used tools handy!!


  1. So cute! I need this for my craft room --- oh wait --- I need a craft room!

  2. I googled for the ikea bucket and nothing came up. Could you tell me how I can find them. Thank you very much.


    1. Hi Francis. IKEA discontinues their items quite frequently. These buckets are a few years old, so I bet they are discontinued. IKEA has many items in their kitchen wall organizing section. While you may not find the exact product, you can probably find something similar. Good luck!! :)


Thanks for your comments!
