Washi Tape Organization

Such a fun way to organize your collection of washi tape! #washi #washitape #organization

Hi friends! It’s Thrifty Thursday and today I’m sharing a fun, easy and thrifty way to organize your Washi Tape collection! So let’s start out with a story. I’ve had a few rolls of washi tape for a while. I created my first washi project back in April, a Washi Tape Vase. Over months I bought one roll here and one roll there, and so tossing my cute little collection into a vintage Atlas jar seemed the perfect form of washi tape organization.

But then, thanks to sales and Pick Your Plum, my washi tape collection has grown…

I tried multiple jars – and though they were cute – I found myself frustrated with not being able to see my entire collection and having to dump out the whole jar just to get that roll that I wanted on the bottom (of course)! Then I saw this washi tape organization idea by No Biggie and I was inspired to go thrifting to find a similar solution! So I headed down to my local AZ Goodwill on 50% off Saturday to look around. Now, I never seem to find things when I’m “looking” for them, so when I came across this contraption, I was giddy!

Do you know what it is? It’s a spool rack! A June Tailor Cone Thread Rack to be exact. And this $23 beauty was marked down to $2.99 at Goodwill, which means just $1.49 half-off. I wasn’t too sure if it would work, but at less than $2 it was worth a try! So I snagged it, ran (ok, drove) home and tried it out immediately. And it is PERFECT.

Such a fun washi tape organization system, don’t you think? Currently it fits all of my collection, with room to grow, YAY! And now I can see exactly what I have and I can get to it easily! And a bonus: it has two holes in the back for hanging. Once I have an idea of what I want to do with my craft room, it will be hung! How convenient is that? So re-purpose your sewing gear or head down to your thrift stores, find a spool rack or other fun unconventional ways to organize and display your washi! What fun ideas have you come across lately?

    What a great score! I love love how you found that deal on the rack for super cheap. LUCKY! I keep my washi tape in a tupperware type container that has 3 layers to it. So far mine only takes up 1 layer but Im sure it will outgrow the box eventually

    What a great idea!! I seriously never find anything in our Goodwill Store, but I’m always hopeful!

    Loooove this!!! I have accumulated quite a bit of Washi now from both PYP and DownTown Tape (I see we have some of the same ones! lol). This is a fantastic idea that I am so copying when I have a place to hang it! (ie: when my Oldest son’s room turns into my craft room) 😉 Now I can only hope to find something like this at my GoodWill too! :) Pinned it!

    Knew what you had your washi tape on right away as I’ve wanted one of those racks forever. Seems whenever I find one I’m out of money or it’s too expensive. Won’t buy one unless it’s on sale or I have a good coupon. Think it’s time to see if my clever handy hubs can make me one of those for washi tape and one for all my sewing thread. What a smart idea. I need to have my “stuff” out where can see it to inspire me. Sure glad you shared this idea. Happy week

    I love it Kimberly! What a great solution! I love the natural wood with all the pops of color! And don’t you love seeing them all out on display?! It’s so fun!

    Thanks for sharing my solution too! :)

    I bought this at my local goodwill months ago. I was going to use it to hold my bracelets, but it didn’t work out like I wanted it to. I was going to donate until I saw your post. Can’t wait to do this with my washi!
