How to Draw a Simple Christmas Tree

Artist: Dawn / November 14, 2009

Step 1.

So your ready to draw a Christmas tree right? Well let's get started! Start with a triangle that should be as big as you want your tree to be. Once that shape is drawn in, you can draw the guidelines for the trunk, the tree skirt, and the star.

Step 2.

Instead of drawing out both sides of the Christmas tree, I want you to draw one side at a time. Start by drawing the outlined shape of the tree star. Once that is done draw the base of the star and then begin sketching out the shape of the tree's pin   

Step 3.

Well this already your last drawing step. All you have to do is draw out the other side of the Christmas tree and then draw the shape of the trunk. Once that is done you can then draw the tree skirt, and start sketching in the decorations. I drew in    

Step 4.

When you are done with this lesson on "how to draw a Christmas tree", you should end up with a drawing that looks like the one you see here. Have fun coloring it in and join me next time with another fun fill tutorial.

Description: β€œO Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; Not only green when summer's here, but also when 'tis cold and drear. O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging!”. That is the famous German carol that people worldwide sing and dance too while they are decorating the tree.

The whole concept of decorating a tree was developed back in the nineteenth century.
