As an crafter will tell you, it can be difficult to keep track of all the little bits from current or past projects. That's why we love this do-it-yourself craft and sewing station. It creates a space where everything can be stored for easy access later.

Skill Level: Beginner


Wooden crate (about 12 to 14 inches long); metal yardstick; pencil; drill with 3⁄8-inch bit; sandpaper; 1⁄4-inch wooden dowel, cut about 2 inches longer than length of box.


1. Stand crate on one long side. Mark positions for two dowel holes on each side of crate, centering holes and making sure they’re level from side to side.
2. Drill a hole at each mark. Sand crate and dowel ends.
3. Insert dowel through one hole, then through ribbon spools, then through opposite hole.
