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 color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.

How to draw a Christmas Tree with Presents – Step by step for beginners and kids

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

Let’s begin with a rough sketch of the tree – for this we will first draw a very long pointy triangle and a small rectangle at the base – this is going to be our Christmas tree

Next, we will draw a rough sketch of the star on the top – this is going to make drawing the Christmas tree really easy.

We are done with the rough sketch!

Let’s begin drawing the Christmas tree.

Next, draw the star outline using a marker or any drawing tool. We are going to erase the rough sketch later.

Next, draw 2 short lines at the side of the tree under the star.

Now, let’s complete the first row of the fig tree by drawing a wavy line connecting the two short lines like this:

Next, repeat the same process and draw a second row.

Easy, isn’t it?

Repeat this two more times and you’ll have finished drawing your Christmas tree.

Lastly, draw the bark of the tree.

Now, this isn’t a Christmas tree without decorations.

So, let’s draw some Christmas ornaments on the tree – I am going to draw simple Christmas balls on the tree.

I’m leaving the 3rd-row blank because I want our tree to have a cute persona.

I’m going to draw 2 cute eyes and a small “U” shaped mouth.

Doesn’t our tree look happy?

Next, I’m going to draw the presents.

Draw a small square box under the tree and draw a rectangle over the box, it’s okay if the rectangle is overlapping a little – because the lid of the present is usually bigger.

And keep repeating till you have enough presents under the tree.

Draw little bows on the presents to add more festivity to the picture.

And we’re done!

Let’s color the Christmas tree and the presents now.

Erase all the rough lines before coloring your tree

First, we’ll start by coloring:

  • The tree green
  • The bark brown
  • And the star yellow
Draw kawaii characters and make stickers!

Next, you can color the Christmas ornaments any color you want. Use your imagination!
