Meaning of Christmas Ornaments

By November 29, 2012

Follow me on:

A few years back, my kids and I made a set of ornaments to give as gifts to some of our family members. Each set included 8 different ornaments: a star, a red ball ornament, a fir tree, a bell, a candle, a gift bow, a candy cane and a wreath. These designs were picked for a very specific reason, each represents a symbol of the "true meaning" of Christmas. Use these free, printable patterns to make a variety of ornaments that represent symbols related to the true meaning of Christmas and read about what the symbols mean.

Loved the piece for the meaning of Christmas, never knew all of them such as the Fir Tree, only thought of that as the everlasting green. The Red Ball and the Bow I had never heard (the meaning of before). Think I may have a talented gd do this with pictures and do on card stock another year for either cards or tree ornaments. Than you so much
