Craft Lightning – Day 5 Roundup

It is the final day of Craft Lightning! I teamed up with Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, and all week we’ve been sharing our own fast crafting tutorials as well as having friends from around blogland join in. What an awesome week it has been… filled with my favorite kind of crafting – quick! All the crafts this week were done in 15 minutes or less! If you missed out on any of it, be sure to go check out day one, day two, day three, and day four of Craft Lightning Week. Below you’ll find today’s roundup… more fun and fast crafts from bloggers around the internet. Proving that you don’t need a lot of time to get crafty!

I’m a big fan of fast jewelry – any time I can make accessories in less time than it takes me to pick out an outfit is a win in my book! And how cute is this 15 minute jewelry set by Seven Alive!?

Speaking of fast jewelry – these quick earrings at Happy Go Lucky are so much fun! I love the modern look – they’d pair equally well with a little black dress and heels or a t-shirt and jeans.

I love filling my house with photos – but a girl can get tired of stacks and stacks of frames around the house. This quick and easy photo wreath from Decor Adventures is a fun alternative to traditional frames (and way better than keeping photos stored away in shoeboxes)!

I’ve started reading my son a chapter book at night before bed. It makes him feel like a “big” boy… right now we’re using a scrap of paper as a bookmark, but I’m sure he would much rather make a fun popsicle stick person bookmark like these from My Very Educated Mother.


These fun rustic arrow signs were made for a Ranch Day at school, but would be fun for your little cowboy or cowgirl’s birthday party, and they are super quick and simple to make when you follow these instructions by Delicate Construction.

Laura from The Shed Blog made these awesome pipe cleaner dolls… that dog head on top… I die! It is like the perfect cherry on top.

Angie, my partner for this series, added some quick and easy embellishments to a package – I love that it is so easy to add a little flair to a gift!

And I came up with a project that has been the hit of bathtime around here – a washcloth puppet! I’ll have to make several more – good thing they are so easy to whip up!

Thanks for joining along all week… I hope that you were inspired by all these quick crafts. If you can carve out a few minutes, you really do have time to get creative and make a project from start to finish! If you have a quick craft of your own you’d like to share, please add it to the Craft Lightning Linky!
