Jesse Tree Ornaments
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.
This ornament pack contains three sheets of card printed with thirty-one double sided ornaments for you to colour, cut out and use to decorate your own Jesse Tree at home. 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 be left in its natural state or stripped and painted gold, silver, white and then suspended from a ceiling or ‘planted’ in a pot. Instructions for preparing the ornaments are included in this pack.
