This peace dove ornament is not just for the holiday season.  (Read the  poem below and you’ll understand why.)  The dove is a symbol of peace, which we tend to think about quite a bit during the Christmas season. But this little peace dove is meant to be used throughout the year as a reminder to keep peace in our hearts at all times.

Very simple and inexpensive to make, all you need is a foam craft sheet, glue and thread. We’ve included two sizes of printable patterns and of course the poem, also in various sizes. These make wonderful  gifts for neighbors and friends. Feel free to use them as tree ornaments also!
