The thing I love most about Craft Lightning week is that we are dis-proving the notion “I’m too busy to craft”. All of the crafts Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and are showing and featuring this week were made in 15 minutes. Most even less!
Sure, you need to come up with an idea first… but we’ll be sharing over a dozen ideas this week. And for each craft I made this week, I guarantee you I didn’t sit in front of my craft table and think, “Huh, what can I create in less than 15 minutes?” I usually get my inspiration in mundane places like while driving the car or taking a shower. Sometimes I get them while shopping… much less mundane! and often I get ideas for new crafts while making other crafts. Because creativity begets more creativity.
Cynthia from Creative Cynchronicity made this awesome dragonfly. I love the colors and artwork in the wings… click over to see how she got that effect!
Ella Claire shows us how to make 50 treat bags with just $4 of supplies and 15 minutes of time! Super adorable, low budget, AND fast to make! You have to visit her blog for all the details…
At The Country Chic Cottage, Angie glams up her place settings with dollar store items! Go ahead and re-read that last sentence, and check out Angie’s blog to see how she makes it possible.
And earlier today, I made a trophy with burger beginnings…
…and I’m sharing a project from the Craft Lightning Linky Party! Link up your 15 minute or less craft, and Angie or I might feature YOU sometime this week!
I love these Duct Tape Deco Spheres. Simple, and so versatile because of all the patterned Duct Tape that is out there! Make sure you read the tips and tricks at Crafts n Coffee.
Come back every day this week for more fast craft ideas!
