How to Draw a Christmas Stocking

Christmas is approaching.

This year, I thought I’d add multiple easy Christmas Drawing tutorials for both – beginners and kids.

These are easy to draw and can be drawn on Christmas cards, Christmas postcards, banners, you name it!

I’ve already done a lot of tutorials on Christmas already that includes Rudolph, A Christmas Gnome, 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 Stocking – this is what everyone hangs on their mantle piece. You’ll get something like this at the end of this drawing tutorial:

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 Stocking – Step by step for beginners and kids

We are going to be using very simple shapes.

Let’s start with a simple shape first like this:

draw the rim of the stocking

This is going to be the hem of the stocking on the top – the fluffy part.

Next, we’ll draw 2 straight lines downward like this:

draw the sides

Next, I’ll draw the foot of the stocking – a gentle curve.

We can complete the Christmas stocking by drawing 2 little patches on the end like this:

Finally, we’ll draw a small cute face on the stocking to make it more kawaii.

Just draw 2 small eyes and a small u shaped mouth. You can also add a small loop at the end.

And we’ve completed drawing the Christmas stocking.

Now, we can color it!

I’m going to color it green and red to make it look more Christmasy but you can use any colors you want.
