Duct Tape Storage Idea


I may or may not have a bit of an obsession with both duct tape and washi tape. Every time I come across them at a store, I look carefully at the rack to see if any new patterns have come out. I think about whether I want to add another to my collection yet. I just can’t help it! There are so many awesome kinds available and after all, duct tape fixes everything 🙂 There are all sorts of cute crafts you can make with these kinds of tapes, too.

As a condo dweller, I am a bit short on storage space sometimes. I have the craft room doubling as a guest room, so don’t keep items like tables in there. In my travels around Pinterest, I came across ideas where people had used a slack rack for ribbons or washi tape. I figured this could work for duct tape storage also!

Look at all the pretties! I can’t wait to use the TMNT and Star Wars ones, especially.

You want the type that has a swing arm so that you can easily add new rolls or take them off as needed. These also make it so that the rolls won’t fall off the rack. You can buy them on Amazon (affiliate link) or get them at the store. I found mine at Ross and know they often appear at similar stores like TJ Maxx, Home Goods and Marshalls. I love going to these stores since they help me get fancier items for my house at a discount price 🙂 .

Store your duct tape on a swing arm slack rack
Easy peasy…just lift the bar and swing out!

If you have washi tape or ribbons, they can go on the same rack. That will probably be ideal since a rack of just duct tape might be tight depending on how far apart the manufacturer set the arms.

Finally organizing my ribbons too…need to figure out where they all are!

What do you use for duct tape storage? Washi tape? Ribbons?

      Oh yes, that would be good for ribbons and such also.

      Thanks. The Star Wars duct tape was from JoAnn. Don’t forget the 50 billion coupons they send out so you can get all the duct tapes 🙂
