my christmas eve project

What I did on Christmas eve

When Mountain Musings had their Christmas Ornament Show-and-tell, they featured one of Dawn's "Names of Jesus" ornaments.  I liked the idea so much I made my own set!!

I am no crafty person, but I am looking for ways to put Christ into CHRISTmas, so I loved the idea of 26 (one for each letter of the alphabet) ornaments that each proclaim who Jesus is hanging on my Christmas tree. 

I really enjoyed searching online to choose the names I wanted to use.  For some letters there were way too many choices, but other letters left me no choice at all. 

I "cheated" and used "Alpha and Omega" for the letter "Z."  "X" also was a strech with "eXcellent One."  And, I made two for "G"--Gracious One and Glorious--because I had made so many decisions by the end that I couldn't decide any more.  So, my set actually includes 27 ornaments. :)

If you wanna make your own set, of course you could use Google, but you could also check here, here, here, or here for some of the many names of Jesus.

I also added one more touch to mine--I made them bilingual.  One side is English and the other side is the Chinese for that name.

As you can obviously tell, I went an easy route and just used a paint pen, some glue, and glitter on red Christmas balls, but Dawn (a more crafty person) has some other ideas for making your own set.


  1. Lovely ornaments. You did a great job. Merry Christmas, Amanda!

  2. What an awesome idea! Good work on all that work. :)

  3. Amanda, sorry I'm just getting a chance to pop in. I LOVE what you've done with the ornament idea and emphasizing names of Jesus. You were very creative with using the balls and putting names on both sides!
    Hope you had an enjoyable Christmas day. We had so much fun with all the family here. Many wishes for a happy and healthy New Year!

  4. I love your set of ornaments! Excellent!!

  5. So fun!!! I think I should make this a school craft!!! Maybe I'll let some kids pick names and others alphabetized them!?! :D Thanks for the ideas!
