Dove Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
We purchased the doves as a favor for our Christmas Party. There is a dove story with our company owner so it not only brought a warmth to her heart, but she thought they were very cute. One thing we did do so they would show up better on our tables was to spray them with glue and sprinkle iridescent glitter on them and that added so much to the already nice look. The head and eyes were perfectly done. All in all they were formed well and easy to put together. We made the purchase as a craft item to give a more personal touch. There were a lot of good comments from different ones on how great they were. Thank you Oriental Trading. You came through again for us.

Easy to complete
I made sixty of these ornaments in one day for a church mission project. They were easy to complete using glue dots. There were no missing pieces and extras were included. I did not use the banner with the printed word. The felt absorbed the ink and the banners were faint to read. The red banners appear more brown than red. I preferred the look of the doves without the banners. The catalog and online image shows a hanging ribbon, but the kits contain a string. These were reasonably priced, well-figured and easy to do.

Good craft EXCEPT glue does NOT hold it together. I used a glue gun and that worked fine.
This was an easy craft to assemble. The problem came in the gluing. White school glue absorbs into the felt and doesn't hold it together. I used a glue gun, which held it together but limits the involvement of children.

these are very easy to do and turn out beautiful. I ordered them last year and they were so popular with my friends that I am doing more this year. Make a great holiday gift for coworkers.

Great Product for the Price
I bought these to put on my Christmas tree...i used a hot glue gun, but I think regular glue will hold these together nicely... The Red banner turned outo be a brownish color, kind of like dried blood, but still turned out ok, a few of my pieces were also dirty, but it was easily covered up. The doves and pieces are made of a thick felt material, it seems very durable... overall i think this is a great craft for the price and i belive that small children will be fine making it, as long as they are old enough to use glue.
