Our holy land olive wood Bethlehem cross Christmas ornaments have been individually hand-carved and smoothly sanded from a single piece of olive wood pruned from the olive trees that flourish around the holy city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. Each olive wood cross ornament is engraved with the words "For unto us a child is born" on one side and the words "Emmanuel, God with us" on the other. The olive wood cross ornaments are detailed with a sparkling Swarovski crystal representing the star of Bethlehem and hang from a crimson satin ribbon. Custom personalized engraving options are available should you wish to create your own design.
- Olive wood cross measures: 3.75" x 1.75" x 0.5"
Instructions regarding custom engraving: Enter your desired text in the accompanying text box. Engraveable space allows for 25 spaces MAX per side. Please be sure to double check your spelling and desired capitalization before submitting your order. Custom personalized items are not eligible for return or exchange.
Please note that each order includes (1) uniquely grained holy land olive wood Christmas cross packaged with care in a white organza drawstring gift bag. The ornament is accompanied by a scripture verse presentation card that details the significance and origins of the olive wood cross. Two scripture verse presentation card options are available. The Romans 15:13 card is included by default (May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit), but please use the "special instructions" box found within your shopping cart to let us know if you prefer the Deuteronomy 38:8-9 card instead (The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.)
The olive wood used to create your cross ornament has been harvested from the trimming of the olive wood tree branches. This annual pruning process is designed to improve the overall health and productivity of living trees.
- About the Artist: Mosleh Workshop is located in Beit Sahour, a Palestinian village on the east side of Bethlehem. Olive trees have been growing on this land for thousands of years. In an area with few opportunities, the sale of olive wood creations provides desperately needed income for talented artisans. Purchasing olive wood crosses made by local Christian craftsmen supports the families of Christians in the land of Christ.
