Temple Blocks

Pin It


My friend Rose sent me THIS LINK and said she thought we might want to make these for a Young Women activity. She was right. We had a blast making them.
Kristyn has the temple picture with the saying free to download on her blog. In fact, she has a ton of temples to choose from. We did ours a little bigger because the guy who cut the wood for us cut them from a bigger piece of wood so we ended up using 5"x7" pictures. They turned out beautifully. They are thicker too. About an inch or so. The one piece of advise I have for you if you do this for an activity night is to bring fans or hair dryers. The wood took forever to dry. (Some of the girls put layer after layer of paint on. Ha ha.)

I would say this activity was one of our best! I love my little temple block and have it sitting on my piano! You should make one you'll love it too!



Come back soon,

Suz, I had found this link awhile back and have made several. I've given them at bridal showers and to newly endowed sisters, as I just left RS recently. Thanks so much for sharing, hopefully I can get our YW to make theirs now!

Hey Merry,

What a great gift these make. I bet those sisters were thrilled to get them. I just got put into primary. Maybe I'll make them for my cute class.

Hi Moira,
Glad to hear you made these. I'm sure your Young Women were thrilled with them! Thank you so much for your kind words. Christmas was wonderful. It was busy and came way too fast. I wasn't able to finish every project I had planned, but I got some done! I hope your Christmas was awesome and that 2012 is a great year for you. Thanks for always posting such nice comments. I have loved getting to know you too.

Hi Suzy~

I realize that this post is not recent, but I would really love to make these temple blocks with my young women. I tried the link, and it no longer is working (at least that I can see). Is there any way you could help me to access them? My e-mail is kamellenewton@yahoo.com. We are visiting all 16 Utah temples in 2016, and I think this would be amazing. I would really be grateful for the help.

Thanks,
Kamelle
