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:

I remember making these in camp as a child of the 70s! They are really a lot of fun, and definitely will be great decorations.

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.

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.

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…

A special creation, I like it.

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.
