I’m very pleased with the idea of making Eames print pumpkins as decoration for Halloween. And here’s why. First of all, mid-century modern is all the rage, and Eames is the epitome of mid-century modern. Secondly, who wouldn’t want pumpkins that look good around the house? These are so cool, you won’t even feel the need to throw them out on November 1st. Finally, these are the easiest thing to make, and that’s really important to me! No mess, no fuss, just you, your pumpkin, and a black sharpie. They’re so easy in fact, that you could casually make them at the last minute.
What you need:
- pumpkins (I used squash)
- black sharpie
Alright, this is the easiest “designer” piece you’ve had in your home! Have a look at some images of this print for inspiration. Then grab your sharpie and start drawing! You can either start with the dots and connect them with lines or just freehand lines and make the dots at the end.
Don’t worry about getting the pattern exactly as the original, that’s really not necessary. As long as you have the mid-century vibes in there, you’re good. Of course, you can use different pumpkin colors and varieties for the base, that will look lovely!
