Ojos de Dios

pillows 036

This craft is simple and fun! If you have Popsicle sticks and yarn hanging around, you can easily create Ojos de Dios or God’s Eyes. We used a glue stick to secure the sticks together, then, starting from the middle, we wove the yarn between the sticks. Here is a great site with the directions and some information about the Huichol tribe who create Ojos de Dios as offerings. Most teens made two or three Ojos de Dios, as they planned to give them as gifts. You can also make Ojos de Dios into ornaments during the holidays.
