21 Easy Christmas & Winter Drawing Ideas

As I write this blog post, Christmas season is fast-approaching so I figured I should create a blog post of easy Christmas drawing ideas to try drawing.

Whether you are looking to draw Santa Claus, a snowman, reindeer, or Christmas ornaments – I hope you find the right drawing idea for you 🙂

Most of these drawings are simple so they are a perfect fit for beginner artists – so draw away!

Drawing Tips:

I recommend starting off your drawing in pencil to create the sketch.

Afterwards go over with an ink pen if you’d like.

Erase the pencil sketch underneath once the ink dries, and you have yourself your finished drawing!

Feel free to color it with the medium of your choice.

And above all, have fun 🙂
