Wrapping Paper and Ribbon Wall Rack

Pin It

I have always wanted a wrapping paper organization station. A place where all of my wrapping paper, bows, and ribbon are together and organized. I was planning on purchasing a wrapping organizer from Pottery Barn until I found the "how-to" on making this wrapping paper and ribbon wall rack from 33 Shades of Green.

We found the frame at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $14 and the curtain rods at JoAnn's Fabric and Craft for $2.50 a piece on sale. Once we had everything, we painted the ends of the rods and the frame white, attached the hardware, and hung it on the wall. We suggest purchasing five 5/16" dowels to reinforce the curtain rods (they fit perfectly inside the curtain rod and make them much stronger).

This is our craft area with our organization table from Ikea. It is filled with ribbon, tissue paper, boxes, paper, scissors, tape, scrapbook supplies, and so much more. There are two hooks on the wall to hang gift bags in various sizes. Other than needing to add a little more color to the room, we now have a place to wrap, craft, and scrapbook.

Oh man, I can't find that table on IKEA. Do you have the name? Thanks for all of your super ideas.

Thank you for your comment. The table is called Varde 12-Drawer Unit... and I just checked IKEA's website for it and couldn't find it anywhere. I hope it hasn't been discontinued because it really is a great table.
