God's Eye

The eye of the Great Spirit or God's Eye is popular with the Native Americans in New Mexico.

Materials: 2 sticks 1/4" diameter, 6" long, 5 yards of thick, brightly-colored yarn in three colors

Instructions: Each father/ child team ties yarn together to make one piece, then ties twigs together to form a cross. Develop eye by stringing yarn from one branch of the cross to the next. Start in the center and work outward in a clockwise direction. Always go over top side of stick to top of next, around, and onto next stick. When all yarn is used, tie end to stick. Glue a loop of yarn to the top stick to make a hanger for your beautiful craft.
