Doves represent both peace and hope. Make your own personalized peace doves by crafting them out of paper.

Or, attach ribbons to them and hang them on a door knob of your home for a charming touch.

Print a free template of paper peace doves from websites such as Multichannel, Mosaic Works or DLTK Kids.

Cut out the paper dove with a pair of scissors.

Trace the dove on a piece of cardboard and a piece of crafting paper using a pencil. Select a wide variety of pre-designed papers from your local craft store.
