How to Draw A Christmas Tree Worksheet

This free printable worksheet will be useful to help the young artist gain confidence in drawing a Christmas tree that will look nice and balanced.  Parents and teachers will find several ways to use this in class and at home.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out perfect do not get discouraged, no one is as hard on themselves as a true artist. Learning to draw takes practice so draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects.

PRINTABLE PROJECT NOTES

Use the basic shape of a tall triangle for the tree shape. Draw this lightly since it is only a framework and some of it will need to be erased later. Draw a guideline straight up and down the center of the triangle to keep things even. This guideline divides the bottom of the triangle in even halves.

Inside the outline of the tree "stack" four or five or more triangles one halfway over the other above it so each is overlapping.

On the bottom edge of each triangle draw a line that curves like a smile, it needs to touch each end of the triangle's bottom corners. This curved line is a guideline to use to add texture to the tree by drawing a series of half circles or the letter, "U" over and over on the line to look like individual drooping tree boughs.

Erase the extra lines of the triangles leaving only the outside shape and the curved lines.

Draw the trunk; use the guideline to put it in the right place.

Decorate your tree.
