15 Craft Projects to Make in 20 Minutes or Less

Pottery Barn faux coral

Have you ever heard the term “craft quickie?” No, it’s not related to THAT. Craft quickies are projects that can be completed in a short amount of time, typically under 30 minutes. And with the limited amount of time that we have these days, it’s nice to whip out a handmade item during the kids’ naps or your fave sitcom. My friends at The Country Chic Cottage and Moore Craft Time recently hosted a crafty quickies themed link up, inspiring me to do a roundup of my favorite speedy DIY projects. I love this faux coral from Beth at Home Stories A to Z - doesn’t it look real? You’ll laugh when you find out how she made it . . . it’s that easy! Click through the jump to see more fantastic (and quick) craft projects!

Note that the time it takes to do these projects does depend on your skill level – these projects may you take a little more or less time. The time stated is how long it took the designer to make based on their skill level and supplies on hand.
