Native American Weaving: Ojo de Dios

Ojo de Dios (God's Eye) is a native american craft that is common in both the Huichol and Navajo tribes. The four tips represent earth, air, water, and fire.

The first step is to glue two popsicle sticks together. 

Wrap the yarn several times around the center to secure the yarn. Then wrap the yarn around the popsicle stick over and around clockwise. 

After weaving around the popsicle sticks secure the end.
