Making Jesse Tree Decorations

A couple of years ago we decided to made a 3D effect Jesse Tree for our readings that we had done for some years. Previous to this we had a wall hanging I had made with pockets down the bottom made from hessian. I had simple painted on with fabric paint a bear looking brown tree and we would pin up the felt decorations for each days readings.
I have just tried to find an image in my photos of this but can;t so when we get them out I will update with a photo.
So trying something new I bought a little Christmas tree to add the little figures to and Eden spent a couple of days making figures to match the bible readings we use (the ones below
aren't ours but our copy is so old I can't find an online copy)

I actually don't think it matters which version you use. Eden just looked at the symbol and created her own image of it.

I think she did a wonderful job and I love her version of the images.
