This year, I’ve been looking for a way to help keep our family focused on Jesus during the Christmas season. I thought it would be a great idea to dispaly some of the names of Jesus in our decorations to help remind us of how wonderful a gift he is.
So, I decided to make my own garland. I sat down and made a list of 13 names of Jesus and 2 verses about his birth. Then I typed them up in a pretty font, being sure to leave enough room to cut a circle around each one. I’m using my scrapbook circle cutter to cut out each circle, but you could also just trace a circle from a cup or small bowl. I still need to buy some red & green paper and get it all put together (I’ll post finished photos next week), but I thought I’d go ahead and post the idea in case anyone wanted to start their own Names of Jesus Garland.
This garland will look wonderful decorating your home and will help remind you of the amazing gift God sent–his son Jesus.
This would also make a great teacher, neighbor, or hostess gift this Christmas season.
If you’d like the names already typed, just leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send you a PDF file of the names on Monday.
