Dove of Peace

Dove of Peace craft

Worldwide, the dove is a symbol of peace. Use a straw tip to paint a unique mosaic-looking dove.

  • 1.

    Draw a circle or other shape with a Erasable® Colored Pencil on posterboard. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. Outline a dove and/or other symbols of harmony such as rainbows or olive branches in the circle. Plan different colors for your dove, background, and other details.

  • 2.

    Cover your craft surface with newspaper. Put several dollops of paint on a paper plate. Dip the tip of a straw into the paint. Blot it on the plate to wipe off any excess paint. If there is a bubble, gently blow to pop the bubble.

  • 3.

    Gently press the straw on the posterboard. Lift to produce a circle. Continue this process, using a new straw when you change colors, to create patterns with circles. Air-dry your painting. An option would be to outline your symbols with a Crayola fine line marker.

  • 4.

    Punch a hole on the top of the circle. Tie ribbon or yarn as a hanger. Display your dove to remind others about why peace is so important.
