DIY | Felt Doves


As it's now less than a month until Christmas, I thought that I would start some festive crafting! I've made these doves a few times before and they are super easy to do and look really effective, be it on the tree, or dotted around the house. Read on to check out how to make them...

You Will Need
Felt Squares
A Paper Dove Template
Embroidery Thread
An Embroidery Needle
Cotton Wool
Diamantes 
Glue

Step 1
Using your paper dove template (which you can easily find online) cut out two bodies and four wings for each dove.

Step 2
Using your embroidery thread, sew around the edges of the bodies and the wings leaving a small gap for the cotton wool.

Step 3
Stuff inside the doves bodies and wings with cotton wool and then continue to sew around the outside.

Step 4
Sew the wings to the body, making sure that you can't see the thread underneath.

 Step 5
Use some embroidery thread to make a loop to hang up the dove and glue on a diamante each side to make an eye.


Have you tried any Christmas crafts?

  16. Oh, what a lovely idea! DIY Christmas ideas usually apply to the usual suspects (eg. holly, christmas pudding) and as lovely as they area, it's so refreshing to see a dove! You've done a wonderful job :)
