Making Ojos de Dios with Ochre


Ojos de Dios (God’s Eyes) are mesmerizing ritual ornaments from Mexico that are said to watch over you, protect you, and perceive things beyond the material realm.

Get lost in the meditation of weaving as you create your own Ojo de Dios. If you hang your Ojo de Dios near where you work or over a doorway, it could bring you good luck!

You will need:
– two straight and fairly solid sticks for every God’s Eye you want to make
– colourful string, yarn, or wool
– scissors
– a comfortable spot to sit as you weave
