How To Draw An Easy Christmas Star, Printable Worksheet

The printable worksheet below will help give the young artist confidence in drawing a favorite symbol of Christmas.

This drawing can be used on greeting cards or to add to Christmas decorations.

I have kept this simple for the young artist. Good drawing takes practice so if it doesn't come out perfect do not give up keep at it and before to long you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects there are many to choose from.

To print the free worksheet below just highlight it and send it to your printer, or save to your device to print later. Some printers work better if you drag the image to your desktop and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above for helpful tips, or try one of the links below.

This is is a simple Christmas star, and because it is simple small mistakes look bigger, so take your time and work carefully to keep lines and measurements perfect.

Draw lightly at first, so you can erase the guidelines later. Use a ruler or other straight edge to help you draw the lines straight and clean. There is no shame in using a tool to help draw lines straight, all craftsmen use tools.

BEGINNING
Draw a cross with the horizontal line about two-thirds of the way up from the bottom. This is just a guideline and you will erase it later. Draw a small square in the center and mark the four corners with a dot. Draw a second and third square centered on the cross and mark the corners with dots.

DEVELOPMENT
Use your straight edge draw lines from the corners of the smallest square to the tips of the cross.
Using the dots of the two larger squares draw long diamond shapes from the corners of the middle square to the corner of the larger outer square.

Erase the extra lines.
