Hello! How are you? When the dog days of summer hit, I always like to start a few organizing projects inside the house. Being inside (in the nice cool air!) sure beats being out in the hotness. ha! So I’ve been working on organizing a few things over the last several weeks. One spot that always needs a little bit of organizing is my “craft area”. Do you remember when I turned one wall in our master bedroom into my craft room? You can see that {HERE}.

We all know that Command™ Brand Strips & Hooks offer damage-free hanging solutions for your walls. They always hold on strong & remove cleanly. Buuuut did you know that these products also have a wide variety of uses for all of your craft projects? They are awesome for that! Now you can even find them in the crafting aisle at Walmart. Yay! You can also find lots of Project Amazing ideas using these products right {HERE}. Today I’d love to show you this Easy DIY Ribbon Storage idea using Command™ Picture Hanging Strips. So keep reading!

Before we get to that tutorial let me show you the before pictures. As you can see my ribbon stash was a jumbled mess! I needed some organization help ASAP! ;)

For this project you will need:
(2) Bekvam spice racks from IKEA
Command™ Picture Hanging Strips
spray paint
Scotch® Titanium Utility Knife
small level

ribbon supplies

First, you will assemble your shelves. It just takes a minute! ;)

I didn’t sand mine, but kind of wished I had. ha! So sand them, if needed.

Next I spray painted my shelves outside with 2 coats of paint. Let dry.

Next I applied the Command™ Picture Hanging Strips as directed.

They were just a little bit too wide.
So I easily trimmed them with a Scotch® Titanium Utility Knife.

I put the other Command™ Picture Hanging Strips on top. Then trimmed again.

Then I attached the shelf to the wall. I used a level to make sure it was straight.

Then I removed my shelf. Rubbed the strips for 30 seconds. Then I waited an hour.

Then I attached my shelf. Easy! :)

Now the only thing left to do was to fill my shelves with ribbon!
I hadn’t realized how much polka dot ribbon I had! haha!

While I was organizing my craft room I decided to make a cute paper banner.


All you need are some pennants. I cut mine out with my Silhouette.
I also needed some cord, mini hole punch & Command™ Clear Hooks.

So all you need to do is punch two holes on each pennant & string them on the cord.

I hung the banner up above my giant pegboard using Command™ Clear Hooks. :)

I think every craft room needs a pennant banner or two! ;)
