If you need fresh ideas, lend that personal touch to your home or holiday celebrations with these great ideas from local artists. Brian Murphy and Katie Stanton have agreed to share some great ideas for making holiday crafts. Forget about gluing cotton balls on pieces of fabric or painting plastic ornaments.

2. Purchase black wire, which you can get at an art store or even in a hardware store.
