Let’s begin.

Step 1: Draw the Christmas pudding

Let’s start by drawing the top of the Christmas pudding – just draw a simple U shaped curve like this:

Next, complete the curve – pretend you’re drawing an upside down bowl or flan.

Now, we need to draw the glaze.

Draw curvy droopy wavy lines like this: they needn’t be perfect. I just draw different sized U shapes and join them all.

Next, draw 2 cherries on top of the christmas pudding.

Then, erase the overlapping lines behind the cherries.

Finally, draw the holly leaves that are super famous – just draw little u shapes.

Next, you can add a face to your Christmas pudding if you want to make it more cuter.

Easy, right?

Now, we’ve finished drawing the Christmas pudding – all that’s left is to color it!

Step 2: Color the cute Christmas pudding

Christmas puddings are usually dark brown so I’m going to color it dark brown and then add some spots to make it look really soft and spongy.

Next, I’ll color the glaze a cream color like this:

Next, we’ll color the cherries red and the holly leaves green.

Lastly, you can color the plate. You can color the plate any color you want!

And we’re done drawing and coloring the Christmas pudding!
