Craft Lightning Holiday Edition – Day 4 Roundup!

Day 4 of Craft Lightning… haven’t all the crafts so far been awesome? If you’ve missed anything, check out the Day 1 Roundup, Day 2 Roundup, and Day 3 Roundup… Craft Lightning is a week of fast crafts – each takes 15 minutes or less. I put together these weeks with my bloggy buddy Angie from the Country Chic Cottage, and we round up some of our favorite bloggy pals to create their own quick crafting tutorials around our theme. This week, the theme is holiday crafts… so hold on to your glue guns… because I have another awesome roundup to share with you:

First, if you haven’t caught the rainbow loom craze, this project might be the craft that sends you over the top. Check out how easy it is to make a fishtail rainbow loom bracelet.

This holiday project is both fast and inexpensive. Less than $5 worth of felt shapes from the dollar store makes a fast and simple felt table runner.

Do you love the smell of the holidays? To me, the spices are a big part of bringing that holiday feel into my home. These Cinnamon Stick Icicles are a great (and fast) way to get both the scent and the look of the holidays!

I always appreciate wine as a hostess gift (seriously – write that down or something), and wine in a handmade wine bag is that much more special!
