Quick Crafts Day 1

 Craft Lightning day 1 is here with some great quick crafts that y’all are going to love.  If you are new here, Craft Lightning is a joint event we have every other month with 30 Minute Crafts.  Every morning I will be posting an original craft tutorial that can be made in 15 minutes or less.  Then every afternoon I will be posting quick crafts from around the web for you to enjoy.  Want a chance to be featured?  Be sure to link up to our Craft Lightning linky party.  If you want even more quick craft inspiration, be sure to follow our quick and easy crafts Pinterest board.     
If you missed any of the Craft Lightning fun, be sure to check out the quick crafts from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4.

To kick things off for day 1, we have Two Thirty Five Designs and these amazing glitter dipped bowls.  I need one or two of these for every room in my home, what about y’all?
