Annual Holiday Ornament

The annual custom-designed 2016 city of Grand Prairie holiday ornament is a tabletop tableau and handmade by Rebecca Jensen, wife of Mayor Ron Jensen. Using natural materials from their Grand Prairie property and recycled books, Mrs. Jensen assembled, painted, adorned, glittered and decorated each for the holidays.

The 2016 ornament comes in a gift bag and sells for $10 each; or three for $25. Proceeds benefit the Lone Star Charitable Foundation, which grants money to Grand Prairie charities. The ornaments may be purchased at:
