Names of Jesus Garland

From the Archives: Originally Posted December 2008

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 display some of the names of Jesus in our decorations to help remind us of how wonderful a gift he is.

As I search for inspiration, I came across this Names of Jesus Garland, Monica (from The Homespun Heart) made for her open house at The Rusty Robin.

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, 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.

*Edited to Add: Unfortunately in our move I can't find our garland from last year, but here is a photo of Kristin's using the PDF file I sent her last year.

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.

Oh, this sounds really neat. I'd love the PDF at beautifulcalling @ gmail.com.

This year our family has been doing a Jesse tree and it has worked well. I thought I would post an update soon. It's coming along great and Chloe loves having an ornament to put up after our bible story each night! http://www.beautifulcalling.ca/2009/12/jesse-tree-journey-to-manger.html

I saw your comment on Homeschool Creations about you doing the names of Jesus as your Christmas Advent. So are we and I see you've used some different names. I'd really enjoy the pdf you have to offer, thank you! lcturnbow(at)gmail(dot)com.

I made felt ornaments out of ours. I hadn't thought of garland, great idea!
