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.

Our first Christmas tree drawing is as easy as it gets, with a tree made of just three triangles. Once we add some decorations, the triangles magically become a Christmas tree!

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 make 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.

Reindeer drawing

First, learn how to draw a reindeer from simple shapes, step-by-step, as he happily gallops over the plain. With really large cartoony eyes and a big nose, this is definitely a cartoon reindeer drawing.

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

Chibi angel drawing

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.

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.

Snowman drawing

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.

Penguin drawing

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.
