Tree #1: The Whispy Christmas Tree

You will want to use a small pen tip for this tree. I used the Tombow Twin Tone marker (Mint Green) and the bullet tip of a few shades of green in the dual brush pens to create short outward, curvy lines. I combined different greens to achieve this look. I finished off by outlining the tree in the mono drawing pen and adding decor details with some bright colours in the fudenosuke pen set.

Tree #2: The Multiple Triangle Christmas Tree

Everyone knows how to draw triangles, right? Well for this tree, all you have to do is layer triangles on top of each other to create the tree shape. Fill in with 245 and outline with the mono drawing pen. Then add details with the fudenosuke set pens.

Tree #3: The Snowman Christmas Tree

Drawing this tree is easier than drawing a snowman! Start off  by drawing your largest circle on the bottom, your medium circle in the middle and your smallest circle on top. I coloured in my tree using different greens (243 top, 245 middle, 346 bottom) but you could also use only one shade. Add outlines with the mono drawing pen and details with the fudenosuke pens.

Tree #4: The Scribble Christmas Tree

Everyone knows how to scribble, right? (Psst, this one is easier than the multiple triangle tree!). For this tree, start scribbling in a circular direction from top to bottom. Ensure that the top is narrow and the bottom is a little more wide.  I used a combination of 177, 245 and 173 for this tree. Add outlines with the mono drawing pen and details with the fudenosuke pens.

Tree #5: The Normal Christmas Tree

I call this the ‘normal’ tree as it seems the most well known drawn image for a Christmas tree. The method for this tree is similar to the snowman tree. Start off by drawing your largest triangle at the bottom, a medium triangle in the middle and the smallest triangle on top. Ensure that the triangles are overlapping a little in order to create your tree shape. I used 173 at the top of the tree and 245 for the bottom. I blended both colours for the middle. Lastly, add outlines with the mono drawing pen and details with the fudenosuke pens.

Tree #6: The Whimsical Christmas Tree

This tree was fun to create as it’s not your typical Christmas tree. Start by drawing a big inverted candy cane shape. Then on either side, add lots of other small inverted candy cane shapes. I used 346 to draw the tree and went back in with the Tombow Mono Edge highlighter in green to add a glowing affect. I finished off by outlining in the mono drawing pen and adding details with the fudenosuke pens.

Tree #7: The Triangle Christmas Tree

Now this is the easiest tree to create and it’s my favourite because it’s so easy! It’s just one tall and long triangle filled in with colour. I used the Twin Tone marker in Mint Green for this tree. Add outlines with the mono drawing pen and details with the fudenosuke pens.

There you have it – the never before told secret on how to draw a Christmas tree 7 ways. I like a classic green Christmas tree but you can always try different colours.
