Paper Dove

Martin Luther King’s message was always one of peace. Try this pretty dove of peace craft as a reminder. This dove is also very pretty hanging from the Christmas Tree!


White card
White paper
Gold pen


Draw a dove shape on card or print our template. Cut out, and decorate the dove with gold pen.

Lie the paper flat in front of you. Fold over a piece about ½ inch wide. Turn the paper over and fold again. Keep going until all paper is folded.

Cut a slit in the centre of the dove and slide the folded paper half way through. Fold the top edges of the folded paper up to join one another and glue together.

If you want to hang the dove punch a hole at the top of the wings and tie through a length of thread.
