i saw this on poppytalk today and i couldn’t resist sharing.  did any of you guys ever make “god’s eyes”? i never have but they’re so awesome looking and simple to make. just tie two sticks together and weave the yarn around them, starting at the center – to see a quick tutorial on exactly how to wrap the yarn, click here. plus you can play around with the colors to get some really pretty combinations – they’d make lovely little table decorations or even christmas tree ornaments!


i also love the pieces of driftwood wrapped in yarn – it reminds me of this photo from our office that i posted not too long ago:



  1. LOVE IT! In college we, my roommate and I, covered our entire dorm in these. Hundreds of them. An all purpose decoration. Thanks for the memory.

  2. i don´t mean to be rude, but it seems a little disrespectful to me to use ojos de Dios as decoration. It´s like you are taking away all the esence and meaning of the object.

  3. At anonymous, you have a right to opinion…I am Mexican and I do not find it disrespectful to use it as decoration. I use anything that is part of my culture as decoration…and believe me my conservative relatives have no problem with it…

  4. Its also a Indian ceremony tool, not a Mexican culture symbol. Yes,Huichol Indians are regional to western Mexico, but its Indian non the less. Sorry, not trying to be rude, but I’m a stickler for facts.
