How to Draw Christmas Stuff – Let’s get started!
Starting from the top down to the bottom, draw a star in the middle of the upper portion of your paper. This will be the ornament at the top of the Christmas tree.
By starting at the top of your paper, there will be sufficient space to structure the entire Christmas tree along with a few presents underneath.
Step 2 – Draw the Christmas Tree’s Topmost Layer
Right underneath the star, draw a triangle shape with a curvy line at the bottom. This creates the topmost layer of the Christmas tree.
Make sure that there’s some slight curve to the diagonal lines on both sides and that they look like downward slopes.
Step 3 – Draw the Christmas Tree’s Second Layer
Draw two downward diagonal lines headed towards opposite directions beneath the first layer we drew in the previous step.
This forms the second layer of your Christmas tree.
Step 4 – Next, Draw the Christmas Tree’s Third Layer
Repeat the previous step to create the third layer below the second layer.
Step 5 – Draw the Bottom Layer of the Christmas Tree
Draw the last layer underneath the layer we drew in the previous step. This should be the biggest layer among all four layers of the Christmas tree.
Keep in mind that the Christmas tree should form a triangular shape. That means, the layers from top to bottom should go from the smallest to the biggest.
After completing this step, you should now have four layers and the structure of your Christmas tree should now be complete!
Step 6 – Add a Huge Present Under the Christmas Tree
Underneath the Christmas tree, draw a three-dimensional upright rectangular box. Drawing a box with dimensions is easy!
Simply start by drawing a standing flat rectangular shape that is slightly tilted diagonally. Then, draw a narrow diagonal rectangular shape on its left side and a square shape at the top.
Don’t forget to add parallel lines on all visible sides of the gift box to create the ribbon!
Step 7 – Next, Draw a Smaller Gift Under the Tree
Draw a smaller present under the Christmas tree beside the first one we drew in the previous step.
This time, however, the dimensions should be on the right side of the gift, opposite to the previous one. This makes the gifts look more proportionate.
Step 8 – Now, Draw Two More Gifts Under the Tree
Repeat the previous step to create two more presents on each side of the two gift boxes we drew in the previous gifts. Don’t forget to add ribbons on these two presents as well!
At this point, you should not have four boxes of presents underneath the Christmas tree.
Step 9 – Adorn the Christmas Tree with Ornaments
Make your Christmas tree look eye-catching by adding ornament balls hanging all over the surface of the tree.
Simply draw multiple circles on different spots to make the ornaments look evenly distributed across the Christmas tree, as shown in the illustration. Feel free to place the balls wherever you like!
Now that we have successfully drawn a Christmas tree, it’s time for the most enjoyable part, which is choosing the colors and coloring the Christmas tree.
Traditionally, Christmas trees are primarily colored green as they are live evergreen, pine, or fir tree. Today, however, artificial Christmas trees have been developed and it comes in many color options.
The star at the very top of the Christmas tree is typically yellow, but it also exists in other colors.
The Christmas balls adorning the Christmas tree as well as the box of presents underneath comes in a wide range of colors.
Feel free to customize the colors of the Christmas stuff in your drawing! Which colors will you choose?
