CHICAGO (TheStreet) - Kids aren't the only ones who like to play around with arts and crafts. These days, every major holiday--Easter, for example--provides an excuse for creative-minded folks to pull out the glue guns and fabric markers and get to work creating homemade, one-of-a-kind decorations. And all those family projects add up to big business.The Craft & Hobby Association, a trade group with 3,500 members (many of them small businesses), has found that half of U.S. households create at least one craft project each year. Which means that the seemingly humble craft and hobby industry pulls in about $30 billion annually.
