Jesse Tree – It’s Not too Early to Start Planning

The beginning of Advent often sneaks up on me, meaning that I am only sometimes successful with family traditions like the Jesse Tree. This website has some great tips on planning for doing a Jesse Tree with your family this year, and it also contains a link that you can use to purchase the materials if you’re not feeling crafty this year (I would fall into this category most years!). In the past, I have also printed Jesse Tree ornaments from this website, and then simply taped them to a wall in the shape of a Christmas tree. The website not only provides templates for all of the ornaments, but Scripture passages and reflections for each day of Advent.

Many blessings to you this Wednesday morning! Mary, Queen of all saints, pray for us!

    Thanks so much, Kat! Advent always sneaks up right after Thanksgiving. Bless you for encouraging us to plan ahead! What’s that you say about a Jesse Tree option that doesn’t involve any crafting? Maybe… just maybe… this will be our Jesse tree year : )

    We use the Illuminated Ink Jesse Tree. It involves minimal crafting but still turns out beautifully. And Illuminated Ink always gives such great information with their kits! (Scriptures, history, prayers, etc)

    Thanks for linking up to my Jesse Tree post….those beautiful heirloom Jesse Tree ornaments are up for grabs in a GIVEAWAY that opened today, here: http://www.equippingcatholicfamilies.com/2013/11/heirloom-jesse-tree-treasures-giveaway.html
    NO crafting. :)

    I’ve had Jesse tree guilt for years, so I just ordered a cute magnetic one from Etsy. I hope that we actually do it, because I do think it would be great to read some scripture leading in to Christmas and learn about the Old Testament prophesies.
