How To Draw A Christmas Bell.

This free printable drawing worksheet is an easy drawing lesson for beginner and will help young artist gain confidence in drawing.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:  If your drawings do not turn out the way you were hopping do not give up, learning to draw takes practice. Draw everyday and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to this blog often and try some of my other projects.

The Christmas Bell worksheet below may be printed by highlighting it and sending it to your printer or saving to your device to print later. Some printers work better if you first drag the image to your desktop and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above or try one of the updated files below.

The challenge is to get both sides of the bell to match and have the same curves. I suggest a line going up and down the middle to be a guideline that the artist can use to measure off of so that both sides are equal.

NOTE: Draw lightly at first so you can erase later on.

Using the guideline draw a circle with the guideline straight through the center. To make a perfect circle consider tracing around a coin or jar lid, real artist use tools like these all the time. Below the circle draw an oval across the base, check to make sure one side of the oval is not higher than the other this will make the bell look deformed. The oval should be wider than the circle above it, and each side should be the same distance past the circle.

Add two circles one inside the other for the ring at the top, and another small circle is sketched at the bottom for the clapper. If you used the guidelines you can erase them now. Using freehand draw the curve that connects the circle with the oval, make this curve graceful and be sure that both sides match.

The bow starts as a circle for the knot with two ovals, one on each side. Draw the end of the ovals straight up and down. Add a curve line across the oval to give it a front and a back. There will be a second curve line smaller and touching the first at both ends to open up the bow.

The ribbon laces curve like a letter "S" or any way you want. Sketch the ribbons with two lines one for each side and an upside down letter "V" at the end. The top hanging part of the ribbon is just two lines going up and down.

Add shadow to make it look real. If you use red for the ribbons make the background green so it stands out. My example is of gold bells I used a little light brown for the shadow and put some blue in the green background to bring the bells forward.
