Easy Christmas drawings: Christmas tree
Let’s start our collection with the essential symbol of Christmas time – the Christmas tree. Here we have two different ways to draw a Christmas tree for you.
Pretty Christmas tree drawing
While the second Christmas tree drawing is drawn from similar simple shapes as the easy tree, curving out the triangles, outlining them with squiggly lines, and adding extra decorations and details makes the second Christmas tree look just awesome!
Easy Christmas drawings: Santa
The next essential symbol of Christmas time is the man delivering the Christmas presents – Santa himself. As with the Christmas tree above, we offer you two different ways how to draw Santa.
Easy Santa drawing
Our first Santa is as simple as it gets: closed eyes and a long coat mean no eyes or legs to draw! But with the “trademark” features – Santa’s hat, gloves, a large mustache, and beard – you will still end up with a very recognizable and cute Santa character.
Fancy Santa drawing
Here is another way how to draw Santa. The second Santa has a full body, an interesting pose, and many fancy details, including a sack full of Christmas presents. With a little extra work, we get a much nicer and fancier Santa drawing.
Easy Christmas drawings: Santa’s reindeer
Next up is Santa’s trusty steed – Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, the lead of the pack pulling Santa’s sleigh.
How to draw Rudolph
Next, learn how to draw Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. With just a few extra lines we will dress the reindeer in a sleigh-pulling harness. Add a red nose and you have a Rudolph flying high through the Christmas sky.
Easy Christmas drawings: Angels
Since the Christmas tradition comes from the Christian celebrations of the birth of baby Jesus, Christmas time is also full of angels. Here are two very different ways to draw an angel for you.
Angel in a simple chibi style
Our first angel is drawn in a simple chibi style. To turn a little chibi boy into an angel, we dress him in a long white shirt and add a few more angel “trademark features” – large white wings, cute curly blond hair, and a golden halo.
Graceful angel drawing
The beauty of this drawing is in its simplicity. The graceful female figure is defined with just a few lines. The tall and thin body and full-length wings, powerful hand posture, and almost no face make this a mysterious and graceful angel.
Easy Christmas drawings: more Christmas and winter characters
The next lot of the easy Christmas drawings are some other characters typical for the Christmas season. What would Santa do without his helping elf? What is a favorite Christmas cookie? And since in many parts of the world Christmas comes in wintertime, you can always add a cute snowman or penguin to your Christmas drawing repertoire.
Christmas elf drawing
Our elf drawing is made using very easy to draw shapes – circles, rectangles, and simple curves to build a character in an interesting pose – a Christmas elf leaning on a present.
Gingerbread man drawing
Learn how to draw a cute and friendly gingerbread man with a nice smile. This is the classic cookie-cutter shape, decorated with round buttons and icing, the same as you would decorate the real gingerbread man cookie.
A snowman is one of the easiest characters to draw – just stack three circles. It is the extra details that turn the three circles into a beautiful snowman, though.
Another wintertime fellow dressed for the festive occasion is the penguin. Here you can learn how to draw a penguin with the familiar “tuxedo” feathers drying out his wings – or is he ready for a Christmas dance?
… and more easy Christmas drawings
Finally, here are some things that might come in handy to flesh out your Christmas drawings and cards: writing a “Merry Christmas” in a flashy banner, or decorating odd corners and empty spaces of your Christmas cards with some presents, snowflakes, or stars.
Banners make perfect headlines for your Christmas cards! Learn how to draw 3 different banners: a simple straight banner to get you started, a nice wavy banner for a better look, and an ultimate double banner to show off all the tricks you might need for any banner shape.

Learn how to draw Christmas bells. Draw two different bells and decorate them for Christmas with holly leaves and a lovely bow.
While we have drawn a simple present in other tutorials mentioned above, here is a fancy way how to draw a present from an interesting three-point perspective.
Learn how to draw a snowflake using simple geometry combined into interesting and graceful shapes.
The “traditional” looking snowflakes have a six-arm shape with many small “branches”. The snowflake here has the inner row of those branches joined together into a lovely six-sided star center.
