Birmingham Alabama Temple Christmas Ornament
Let this ornament bring your family close together around the tree to ponder the miracle of the Birmingham Alabama Temple.
Made out of a lightweight and very durable transparent acrylic, this ornament will not weigh your tree down and can definitely withstand being dropped by the little ones should they get too curious around the tree. The acrylic is cut into a 4 inch circle and then laser etched with the name of the temple and a graphic depicting an artistic representation of the Birmingham Alabama Temple.
Get one for your loved ones to remind them that families can be together forever!
