How to Draw A Christmas Wreath – Let’s Get Started!
In this first step of our guide on how to draw a Christmas wreath, we will begin with the top of the wreath.
There will be a bow on top of the wreath, and you can begin it with a small oval shape at the center.
Use some curved lines for the sides of the bow. There will then be two strands dropping down from it, as shown in the reference image.
Once this bow is drawn, we will start drawing the wreath itself. Use some curved lines with sharp points to create the curved branches forming the circle.
These pointy lines will help to make it look like it is made of pin needles. Draw two smooth lines on each side of the branches to show some ribbon binding them, and then we can move on to step 2!
Step 2 – Now, draw some more of the wreath
To continue this Christmas wreath drawing, the next thing we will be doing is drawing more of the branches that make up the wreath.
To do this, we will be using some more of those curved, pointy lines to make it look like pointy pine needles.
After drawing some more sections like these, we will be drawing some more ribbon sections tied around them as you did in the previous step.
That’s all there is to it for this step, so now let’s continue.
Step 3 – Draw some more sections for the wreath
You’re doing a great job in this guide on how to draw a Christmas wreath so far! In this third part, we will continue extending what you have been starting in the previous steps.
That means that you will be drawing some more curved, pointy lines for more branch sections of the Christmas wreath.
Again, there will be some more ribbons tying these sections together where they end.
There will still be a small section left blank at the bottom, but worry not as we will take care of that empty space in the next step of the guide!
Step 4 – Next, draw the final section of the Christmas wreath
This step of your Christmas wreath drawing will see you finishing off the outline. To do this, we will just have one more section of the wreath to draw.
This final section will fill in that empty space that you left in the previous step. The section will also be a branch piece, so again you can use some pointy lines to draw it with the pine texture.
Once this section is drawn, we will be moving on to the fifth step of the guide where you can finish it off by adding some amazing decorative elements!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your Christmas wreath drawing
Before you start adding some color to your drawing, we have a few final details to add in this step of our guide on how to draw a Christmas wreath.
This should be a really fun step, as in this one you will be finishing off with some decorations!
In our example image, we drew several small circles throughout the Christmas wreath to start. Then, we drew some larger circles with small shapes at the top of each to have some pretty baubles on the wreath.
Once these details are drawn, you will be ready for the final step! Before you proceed, you could also change some details or add your own!
Part of the fun of this drawing is that you can take what you have learned and use it to create your own unique Christmas wreath.

Step 6 – Finish off your Christmas wreath drawing with color
Now it’s time to finish off this Christmas wreath drawing with some color! In our reference image, we went for some wonderful festive colors.
We used some reds and pinks for the bow and the ribbon sections, and then we used some yellow for the baubles. Of course, we finished off the branch sections with shades of beautiful green for a fresh look.
These are the colors that we chose, but you should definitely use any other colors you would prefer!
This is your chance to make your perfect colorful Christmas wreath, so you should really let your creativity flow. What colors and art mediums will you choose for your image?
