Doves are mentioned at least twice in the Bible. It was a dove that brought Noah the olive branch to prove the land was dry. The Holy Spirit descended “like a dove” and rested upon Jesus after His baptism.
While you and your family are making these dove ornaments, use this time to talk about the Holy Spirit and the role He plays in your life everyday.
I found instructions for this bird a couple of years ago in a magazine. I can’t remember which one. I would love to give credit where credit is due.
These are simple to make and I have even included a free printable of 7 cut outs for you.
- 2-3 sheets of card stock or construction paper. White for doves or you can use another color for another bird.
- Tissue paper to match card stock (for wings)
- Christmas Doves download (has 7 birds ready to cut)
- Black and yellow marker
- String (for hanging on tree)
- glitter paint (optional)
Putting It All Together
Tread a needle with the string you want to hang the bird with. Carefully, push the needle through the bird. Slide the needle off the string so that each end of the string is on either side of the bird. Tie the loose ends in a slip-knot.
