The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw the star on the Christmas tree by first drawing a small shape similar to an upside -down letter V. On the sides, draw two more angled lines that are similar to less/greater- than signs. Below that, draw the two bottom spikes that are like the letter V , only tilted a bit. A star shape can be tricky, so practice it a few times before starting on your actual Christmas tree drawing.
Step 2: Under the star, draw a line that slopes to the left for the top part of the Christmas tree. Draw another line under the star that slopes to the right this time for the other side of the tree. The lines should be roughly the same length. Add a few spikes at the bottom to represent pine needles.
Step 3: Below that, draw two more lines that slope outwardly for the middle section of the Christmas tree. These lines should be a bit longer than the top lines to make the middle wider. Add some small, curved lines at the bottom.
Step 4: Below that, add two more sloping lines for the bottom of the Christmas tree. You can add more sections to your tree if you'd like. Draw small, V-shaped lines at the bottom of each line for detail on the pine needles. Close off the shape at the bottom by drawing wide, curved lines.
Step 5: Here's the fun part: Trim your tree! Draw a series of long, curved lines across the three sections of the Christmas tree to create ribbons. The curved ribbons should be similar to the letter W, only wider and curvier. You can add as many curves to your ribbon as you'd like; it doesn't have to be perfect.
