How to Draw a Snowman Head

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 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 Snowman head.

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 Snowman Head – Step by step for beginners and kids

We are going to be using very simple shapes.

Let’s begin by drawing the hat of the snowman first.

I’m going to draw a curve first.

Next, we’ll draw the rim of the hat – just draw another curve inside and underneath the previous one – sort of like a tilted crescent moon.

Next, we’ll draw the top of the hat drooping at the side. I’m going to draw another curve on top of the crescent shape.

Complete the hat by drawing a small fluffy ball at the end and then completing the hat.

Then, we’ll draw a large round circle underneath the hat. It doesn’t need to be perfect.

Next, we’ll draw 2 round eyes and a curve for the mouth.

Now, it’s time to draw the carrot nose.

Let’s start by drawing a small curve like a bracket at the side of the snowman’s head in between the eyes.

Then, draw a pointy triangle shape connected to the curve – this is how you draw the carrot nose on the snowman’s head.

And finally, we’ll finish drawing the snowman head by drawing a scarf underneath.

Just draw another curve under the snowman head.

Now, draw 2 scarf ends on one side of the snowman head.

Let’s start coloring the snowman head.

I’m going to add 2 blush spots on the snowman head and color the carrot orange.

Next, you can color the hat and scarf any color you want – but because it’s nearing Christmas, I’m going to use very Christmasey colors like green and red.
