My daughter and I made a pretty dove garland using our new favorite art supply—coffee filters! These were so much fun to make and are perfect for promoting peace for Martin Luther King Day—or any day, for that matter. If you have some coffee filters on hand, you can download our template and print it out on card stock to make a dove garland of your own!
- Fold two or three coffee filters in half and line up the pattern so that the belly of the dove is on the crease of the fold.
- Trace the pattern onto the filters.
- Cut out your doves! Since the filters are thin, you can cut two or three at a time.
- Separate the birds and attach them along some string with tape. Ours are in the kitchen, and every time there is a slight breeze, they look like they're flying!
