Yarn God’s Eye Tutorial: popular kids’ summer craft

By Cindy Hopper

My daughter came home from her summer day camp and was thrilled to show me the God’s Eye she had made. I remember loving to make them when I was younger, too. They are the perfect little craft!

It is called God’s eye for Eye of God. In Spanish, Ojo de Dios.  It is a weaving typically made with wood and many different colors of yarn .

Supplies for God’s Eye craft

All you need for this mess-free craft is yarn and two wooded sticks the same length.  We used popsicle sticks but tree branches or dowel rods would also work.

To make it easier to start weaving, hot glue the sticks together.  Sticks could also be fastened with a rubber band.

Hold the end of the yarn on top of the wood and wrap yarn around the stick catching the end.

Wrap all the way around the stick then move under the next stick. Wrap all the way around that stick then move to the next stick. Always bring the yarn under the stick before wrapping around.

Here is a video that shows how to wrap the yarn for the God’s Eye.

When you want to change colors simply cut the yarn and tie on a new color and begin wrapping again.

When finished tie the end of the yarn to the stick where you ended. Push any end pieces where two colors were tied together to the back.
