Jesse Tree Ornaments: pdf download. Available to purchase until December 14th 2022
The Jesse Tree has been used over many centuries to bring life to the characters who are part of Jesus’ family Tree from Jesse through David to Joseph and Mary, and this year we will be using this resource as part of our Jesse Tree ‘gathering round’ activity on Facebook and Instagram.
These 6 sheets contain the 31 double-sided ornaments that illustrate the Jesse Tree readings, one for each day in December.
Each ornament illustrates one of the Jesse Tree readings written by Andy Raine from the Northumbria Community. The readings themselves, one for each day in December, are available in Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2: Farther Up and Farther In published by Collins and available here
Also available from the Northumbria Community is the Jesse Tree Pack which contains these card ornaments along with an A5 booklet of the readings – available here
Your Jesse Tree can be made from anything you wish but many people use a branch which can either be left in its natural state or stripped and painted gold, silver or white and then suspended from a ceiling or ‘planted’ in a pot.
Colour and cut out your ornaments then carefully thread some cotton or fine cord through the top of each ornament where it is marked with an X. Tie the thread in a loop so that you can hang your ornament up.
