Starting the Christmas Tree
Begin drawing your Christmas Tree

To begin drawing your Christmas tree, first lightly draw a triangle in pencil. This is a guideline to help you shape your tree. Now draw a star on the top. I know it's often a tradition to put the star or angel on the Christmas tree last, but for the drawing we'll do it first! Leave enough room underneath to add the pot later. For best results with this drawing, use a nice large-nibbed felt pen or permanent marker, to give a heavy, cartoony line. Don't be a perfectionist - keep the drawing relaxed and your lines smooth and confident. Trying to fix wobbles just draws attention to them!
