How to Draw a Christmas Gnome

Christmas is nearing!

And I love anything related to Christmas – it’s my favorite holiday.

This year, I thought I’d add multiple Christmas kawaii drawing tutorials.

All of these Christmas drawing ideas are for beginners and kids and they’re all step-by-step.

I’ve already done a lot of tutorials on Christmas already that includes Rudolph, A Christmas pudding, a Christmas tree with presents, and a Christmas tree with lights and a Christmas Guinea Pig.

But in this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to draw a Christmas Gnome. Here’s what you’ll learn:

I am currently using an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to create my digital art.

But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or colored pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

How to draw a Christmas Gnome – Step by step for beginners and kids

We are going to be using straightforward shapes for this drawing tutorial.

Let’s begin by drawing a large circle first. This is going to be the ball at the end of Gnome’s Santa hat.

Next, we’ll draw one side of the gnome’s santa’s hat. Just draw a line and it’s okay if it’s not straight – the curvier the better.

Next, we’ll draw the other side of the Santa hat.

Next, we’ll draw the hem of his Santa’s hat.

Then, we’ll draw the bottom part of the hem.

Next, draw a large ball under the hat – this is going to be the gnome’s nose.

Next, we will draw a cute beard on the gnome.

You can draw the beard in any shape but I’d suggest you make it a little pointy like this:

Next, we’ll draw a quick shirt under the beard.

And finally, we’ll draw 2 boots under the gnome’s shirt.

Now, we can color the gnome.

I’m going to color him like Santa and use a lot of reds.

You can also add designs on his hat and color his nose pink – you can also add 2 blush spots on his beard.

And that’s it! We’ve finished learning how to draw and color a Christmas gnome.

My old bud Ilaria (we’ve been friends on Instagram back when I had Instagram) created this course! I’ve watched her grow from 0 followers, and I’m so, so proud of her!

And believe it or not, there is not 1 single good online course about learning how to draw kawaii art and then making physical stickers on the internet. I’ve been looking for a course like this for a long, long time.

And it’s finally here!!!

You can create your own stickers and print them and sell them on Etsy or any space! She goes into detail about how to draw the characters.

This is by far one of the best courses I’ve taken that is so cute and so educational.

The course is in English, and it’s amazing!

What do you need?

A sketchbook, Photoshop, and a graphic tablet so that you can draw the kawaii characters. If you want to make stickers, you’ll need a printer and sticker sheets.

Even if you don’t want to make stickers and just draw kawaii characters, this course is perfect!
