How to Draw Christmas Lights, Christmas Lights

Step 1.

Here you will draw a horizontal line that is slightly bent a bit. This is the string for the lights.

Step 2.

Thicken the string of wire by drawing another side parallel to the other line you just drew. Add some spotty dashes for wire detailing purposes.

Step 3.

To be artsy I drew the first bulb off the edge of the paper or canvas. The second is in full view. Start by drawing two lights and move along.

Step 4.

Draw two more bulbs in the same fashion you did the first two.

Step 5.

Two more bulbs needs to be added so get busy drawing them out.

Step 6.

Finally, draw in the last three lights or bulbs to finish off your strand. Clean up the drawing and be on your merry way.

Step 7.

And the line art. Here it is all the lights in a six step lesson. I hope you liked drawing some cool Christmas lights.

Description: Here is a simple lesson on the basics to making or creating your own set of lights. I felt that the other lights I made a year ago needed to be updated. Here is a brand new tutorial on "how to draw Christmas lights", step by step. Instead of small LED bulbs that they sell in the stores today, I went ahead and tried to stay old school. Even though I was born in the early nineties, I still remember when houses used to use regular blob shaped lights to decorate the outsides of their houses. They were brighter, more colorful, vivid, and crisp. They also gave off a real sense of Christmas because the four main colors most of the came in was red, yellow, blue, and green where so cheery. So needless to say I went back in time as I reminisced about my younger years and how I miss the Clark Griswold's out there that really knew how to decorate a house for the holidays. Well, I guess that's about it. Enjoy drawing Christmas lights I know you will use what you've learned wisely. Peace out peeps!
