How to make turtle dove napkin rings


  1. Print the turtle dove template onto A4 printable card or heavy cartridge paper (landscape).
  2. Use a scalpel, or scissors, to cut away the grey areas.
  3. Cut a slit along the black lines.
  4. Wrap each napkin ring around a napkin and slot the two birds together using the slits so they form two kissing turtle doves.

Tuck in a white feather or two, scatter more feathers over the table top, then complete the winter-white look with crisp cotton napkins or soft linen antique shop finds.
