One of our commenters, Theresa, has created a fantastic site all about Jesse Trees:
This is a fantastic guide for making a Jesse tree with your family. It is clear, beautifully laid out with wonderful pictures and organized into 5 sections. The readings and the pictures that accompany each day’s story are AWESOME.
- What is a Jesse Tree
- How to Choose Your Tree
- Jesse Tree Symbols
- Jesse Tree Ornaments
- Jesse Tree Readings
The authors (husband and wife) are Franciscans. The site includes several levels / types of ornaments (crafts & printables & coloring sheets), awesome pictures and instructions, and readings with full color pictures go along with each ornament.
Note: the readings can be used for free, but they are excerpted from a longer children’s story book: Bible Characters for Advent, which has a 5-star rating at Amazon! (There are 20 5-star reviews as of the time I’m writing this.)
Here are a few of the ornaments:
