Christmas Jesse Tree

This advent, my youngest child and I created a new, quick and simple Jesse Tree using chicken wire curved to form a tall narrow cone and decorated it with free downloads from around the Internet.

  • First I drew and painted some small Jesse Tree discs to follow our Jesse Tree Bible study and added these to the Jesse Tree Ornaments I had previously downloaded free from Paper Dali  (I don’t think that it is available free anymore ….)  To protect them I covered the discs with clear packaging tape.  Then my daughter ran the discs through the sewing machine to join them together into a lovely long bunting.  We draped this bunting around the tree.

  • Next I painted the black & white version of the Names of Jesus Ornaments downloaded free from Bible Story Printables.com with bright,bold colors.  You can print out the colored version, but I wanted to save on printing ink and I loved painting them myself!  These discs are larger than the small Jesse Tree discs and fill in much of the wire tree space.
  • Last year we made Names of Jesus strips which my youngest stapled into paper rings and interlinked them to make a lovely paper chain to decorate our Advent table.
  • Lastly I downloaded our Jesse Tree ornaments from Ann Voskamp’s Unwrapping the Greatest Gift download.  We colored some elements of each picture in with silver and gold pens and protected the pictures with clear tape.
  • We used thin florist wire pieces to twist through a tiny hole pierced in our decorations and hooked them simply over the tree’s wires as we follow our Jesse Tree Advent story.
