Christmas Design 5 - Pencil

Draw on the lines as illustrated in the diagram with a pencil. Draw these lines very lightly, and they will not show up in the final design.

Front (1): Divide the egg into sixteenths. You start by drawing one long line around the longest part of the egg, until it meets up with itself. Next, draw a long line at a right angle to this one, until it meets up with itself. At this point, the egg should have a cross at the top and bottom of the egg. Next, draw one line around the middle of the egg. Now the egg is divided into 8 equal sized parts. Divide each of these sections in half with a 45 degree line, as shown. Now the egg is divided into sixteenths.

Front (2): Draw the inner star, as shown.

Front (3): Draw the evergreen boughs and curls, if desired.

When you have drawn all the lines in pencil that you wish to, go ahead to White.
