Naturally, I had to. After seeing how easy it is to draw this iconic pattern with fall’s pumpkins, I knew I had to do it again with Easter eggs. If April found you busy, but with a love for all things Eames, this project is for you! You can do it at the last-minute, no dye is required, and I’m pretty sure you already have a sharpie in your house. It’s easy, it’s good-looking, and it’s just a little unusual if you’re into that sort of thing. Shall we get started?
What you need:
- brown eggs
- black sharpie
- (optional) egg dye
DIY Eames pattern Easter eggs
If you want to, you can begin by hard boiling the eggs and dyeing them in colors of your choice. To go with this pattern, I recommend using pastels or natural colors. Or just skip to the next step!
Wash the eggs to remove any leftover grease. You can also use craft eggs for this project! Grab some inspiration photos of the pattern from Google images, and grab your sharpie. Keep in mind that eggs are a relatively small (and curved!) canvas, so draw the dots proportionally. Start with the dots, then connect them with lines, taking inspiration from Eames. Not to worry if it doesn’t turn out exactly like the original – you’re just looking for that look.
