|HOW TO MAKE CHRISTIAN SYMBOL CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS|
These ancient Christian symbols are often seen in church worship design, including Chrismons, needlepoint, embroidery, posters, wall hangings, etc.
Use your imagination! There is no "right" way to do this! What is most important in making these is the gathering of your friends, youth group, and fellow church members to work together on the project so that they can learn the meaning of the symbols as they are being made! Remember -- if these decorations were purchased commercially you wouldn't have that opportunity!
Making Chrismons? -- If you are going to make Chrismons, remember that Chrismons are usually white with gold accents and sometimes gold with white accents. Otherwise, the ornaments can be any color you wish.
Patterns for Making Them: I do not make these available by mail. Simply download the pictures so that they can be printed out as patterns.
Ascension Lutheran Church, Danville, VA, holds the copyright on the word "Chrismons". It was given to them by Mrs. Frances Spencer, who originated the concept and brought it to fruition in that church in 1957. Please note that this web site (www.umcs.org) is not related to the one at the Ascension Lutheran Church of Danville, VA in any way. Their web site has books and DVDs for sale about Chrismons. I suggest you go there for the first and last word on Chrismons.
