Drawing a 4 Seed Labyrinth

8 Steps for drawing a labyrinth in the sand:

  • 1.  Draw a cross in the center.
  • 2.  In each corner of  the crosses quadrants draw two sides of a square shape.
  • 3.  In the missing corner of each of the four boxes plant a tree.
  • 4.  Working left to right from the first line of the cross draw an arch from the the top of this line over to the first line of two-sided square.  This will be the center of the labyrinth when you walk into it therefore, you can be creative depending on your walking motivation.  In this one I used a heart.

  • 5.  Continue working left to right and arch the left side of two-sided box line over to the tree you planted earlier on the right side.
  • 6.  Working left to right arch from the tree you planted on the left side to the second line of the two-sided box.
  • 7.  Continue left to right arching lines as you join up the two sides, remembering the right side is always one lower in the pattern.

  • 8.  Your last left point will arch around and close the labyrinth leaving one opening on the left side of the first line of the cross you began with.
