Craft Lightning Holiday Edition – Day 3 Roundup!

The third day of Craft Lightning is already over! A whole week of fun and fast holiday crafts. I’ve partnered with Angie from the Country Chic Cottage, and all week we’re both sharing a fast, 15 minute or less holiday craft, every day. AND we got a bunch of our blogging pals involved… each day different bloggers are joining in with their own fun and fast holiday crafts! To make sure you don’t miss any of them, go check out the Day 1 Roundup and the Day 2 Roundup, then check out all the crafty goodness that was shared today!

And if you’re like me you’re probably hosting a variety of holiday events, so make sure you have a second set of napkin rings handy (or you could gift a set to a friend). I love these simple holiday napkin rings.


If you’ve already finished your holiday shopping (shhh… don’t tell anyone or we will be forced to hate you forever)… you can move on to wrapping and adding big bows. These bows are simple to make with the bowdabra.
