God’s Eye Craft


Make a God's Eye craft which is a woven design made of two sticks that are held together in the symbol of a cross.

Materials


Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.


To create the base for the God’s Eye, glue (2) Skinny Sticks together in the form of a cross.

Step 3.

Cut (1) Skinny stick into quarters and glue each piece to the end of the cross in the shape of a “T.”


Step 4.

To achieve the wrapping technique, first tie the end of a piece of Friendship Thread around the center of the cross shape created in Step 2.


Step 5.

Wrap the thread around the center of the sticks several times to cover.


Step 6.

Once the center of your God’s Eye is covered, begin to weave your thread around your sticks by wrapping the thread over and around one stick of the cross.


Step 7.

Rotate the cross and go under the next stick and wrap around once. 


Step 8.

Continue the pattern of “over one stick and under the next stick” as you rotate around the center cross.


Step 9.

To change colors in your design, tie a double knot to secure the ends of the new color.


Step 10.

Continue to repeat the “over one stick and under the next stick” pattern. This is the basics of the God’s Eye craft.


Step 11.

For our more advanced design, we added mini God’s Eye woven designs to each of the 4 smaller crosses created.


Step 12.

As an extra special touch, we strung a Cross Charm from one of the sticks on the design. Thread the cross through a piece of thread and secure.


Step 13.

Use this same thread piece to create a loop to hang your God’s Eye Ornament craft.


Step 14.

Use glue on the ends of any loose threads to secure on the craft and help deter them from fraying.
