I recently brightened up a corner of my craft room with some new colorful craft storage, and I am so happy to share all the details of this pegboard tutorial with you today! The Darice pegboard organizing system made it super easy to create a beautiful and functional wall organizer. Keep reading to see how I customized and built my pegboard wall.
I have collected quite a collection of craft supplies over the years, and I’m always looking for more storage and organization ideas for my stash. When I saw the new Darice pegboard system, I knew it could be a fun, decorative storage solution for my craft room.
One of the things I really love about this system is how flexible it is with all of the different pieces available. You can combine several different elements like I did or just use one kit to add a little bit of storage to any corner in your home.
I have included a full list of what I used to create my crafty wall in the pegboard tutorial supply list below, but be sure to check out all of the available pieces.

Step One – Decorate Pegboard Organizers.
The unfinished wood organizers are beautiful on their own but I decided to add some fun and color with a little makeover. It was useful to pick a color scheme to help unite all of the pieces, and I went with pink, coral, and yellow.
I thought it would be fun to create a rainbow style design on the round pegboard piece, so I pulled out some of my Darice acrylic paints and painted a rainbow design on the top half.
I added other simple decorative elements, like stripes and scalloped edges, to some of the other pieces using paint.
As a fun option, use a cutting machine and heat transfer vinyl to add design elements to a couple pieces. Iron on vinyl works really well on wooden surfaces (you can learn more about using heat transfer vinyl on wood here). Just cut out the designs, remove the excess vinyl from around the design, and iron them onto the wood!
The cut files for the Make It Fun design I used on the large container and the shooting star design used on the smaller container are both available in the supply list above.
Step Two – Hang Pegboard Organizers.
The pegboards have channels cut into their backs, which make them easy to mount. I recommend mounting the pegboards into studs or using drywall anchors. Once you have the screws drilled into your wall, slide the screws into the channel on the back of the board.
After your pegboards are attached to the wall, hang all of the other elements from the board using the pegs.
It’s easy to mount shelves, hang containers, and to switch up the design. When you are happy with your layout, just fill your containers and shelves with all of your supplies!
Where would you hang these cute pegboard organizers in your home?
