The Jesse Tree represents Jesus’ family tree. It takes us through that first long Advent, which lasted from the Fall to the Incarnation with a collection of Scripture meditations to prepare for the coming of Christ at Christmas.
Here are some FREE Jesse Tree resources that I have found helpful and/or plan to incorporate this year. There are a few resources for purchase listed at the end of this post.~~~
I am excited to have my first non-paper ornament Jesse Tree this year, thanks to Jessica at Housewifespice. Jessica coordinated a Jesse Tree Ornament Swap this year and I was blessed to be able to participate. I hope to share my ornaments here once they arrive.
My Jesse Tree is a transformed faux lemon tree, courtesy of my boys.
***UPDATE*** a tutorial for my ornament can be found here.
