DIY miniature God’s eyes

Remember making God’s eyes as a kid? I do! I kept a few that I made when I was little, and every year I hang them on my Christmas tree. I’m feeling a little nostalgic lately so I thought it would be fun to make some God’s eyes again, but with a twist. These God’s eyes are miniature, and made using baker’s twine!

This project could not be simpler – all I used was twine from The Twinery in a variety of colors, plus 4.5″ lollipop sticks from Hobby Lobby, which I cut in half. (If you need a refresher on how to make God’s eyes, check out this tutorial.) When you’re done, each little ornament is only about 3.5″ tall, including the hanger!

Teeny-tiny-adorable!! On the left I used butcher paper, twine in Maraschino Red and Caribbean Teal, and a tiny glass ornament to wrap up a little present. And on the right, the twine colors are Peapod, Pink Sorbet, and Honeydew.

The God’s eyes are a little addictive to make, so I ended up with a pile of them really quickly. So, I covered a miniature tree with them and put it on display in my kitchen. It makes me smile every time I look at it! I just think it’s fun to do things at the holidays that make you feel like a kid again, you know? : )

PS. My twine came from The Twinery! Check out their rainbow-y, fabulous twine selection – swoon.
