DIY Watermelon God’s Eye Weaving for Kids! Oh yes! Two of my favourite SUMMER themes collide – a wonderful DIY Watermelon Craft, meets the summer classic Yarn Weaving Project: How to make a God’s Eye! Now we have made God’s Eyes before!
We love this nature God’s eye version – using beach finds in summer and conkers in Autumn. As well as this “flower pattern God’s Eye” – which looks effective and yet is surprisingly easy to make (my 6 and 8 yrs old took to it like a duck to water!).
Today, we are back to the classic weaving pattern, but this time play with the colours.. turn your God’s Eye Classic into a WATERMELON Weaving Craft for kids! Hope you like this DIY Watermelon God’s Eye Weaving for Kids!
To make a God’s Eye you will need:
- Yarn in Red, White and Green
- Popsicle sticks or coffee stirrers or sticks from nature!
- Black pen

Step by step God’s Eye Weaving instructions
If you don’t want to watch the video but want to skip ahead and see how it is done, I have “borrowed” these God’s Eye weaving images from our original Autumn God’s Eye post:
Take 3 of your coffee stirrers and overlay to make a star. If you wish, you can glue them together or secure them with a little yarn. But I find, so long as you hold them steady at the beginning, you won’t need to!
2) Tie on a piece of red wool to the first coffee stirrer.
3) Then wrap it around the next stickand the next etc. It doesn’t matter whether you go from left to right or right to left.
Always wrap in the same direction over each stick, ie over and under or under and over.
When you have enough red, tie on some white yarn and continue for 2-3 rounds. Then replace with green!
4) Tie off and with a black pen draw on some black melon “seeds”.
