Learn how to draw a Christmas tree for a fun holiday project. Whether you're a kid or a kid at heart, drawing a Christmas tree is a fun and festive way to spend a chilly afternoon. This beautiful drawing comes from Martha Stewart Living contributor Wendy Hollender.
Draw a rectangle about 4-inches wide by 6-inches high. Draw an elongated triangle with a curved bottom lightly with a graphite pencil inside the rectangle.
With a dark colored pencil, draw branches that follow the shape of the triangle.
And the needles (the flat leaves) on the branches. Add in the trunk of the tree making it wider and the bottom skinnier at the top.
Draw ornaments in circles and ovals on the branches.
Add green color to the branches and brown color to the tree trunk. You can use watercolors, markers, or colored pencils.
Color in ornaments with bright colors to make them pop against the green Christmas tree.
