      Insider tip- wreaths are a great way to repurpose broken ornaments by gluing the ornament in a way that you can’t see the scratch, chip, etc.

      5. Create a one of a kind original piece of art for any wall in the house. Tie ornaments to a beautiful ribbon and place them in a wooden frame or shadow box. This also makes a great gift.

        Could you make an Olympic National Park ornament? I live right outside the park, but couldn’t find it in your beautiful ornament offerings.
