Diamonds are pretty spectacular, and a nice little object to draw! You could draw them on their own, or use them to enhance your other creations – like if you made an unicorn drawing, you could also add a few diamonds around (or on) the unicorn to make it more magical.
This is a fool proof tutorial, as with all of our tutorials, this one too was tested with different age groups and skill levels and the end result was perfect each and every time!
You can easily transform this 2D picture into a 3D diamond too, with some clever coloring and shading (you can scroll to the bottom of the page to see how we colored ours).

Diamond Drawing Instructions
Start by drawing a straight line, from left to right (or other way around if you find it easier).
Draw two diagonal lines, joined together at a bottom (you should see a triangle forming).
Continue by drawing two diagonal lines at the top (think “trapezoid”).
Connect the loose ends with a straight line. You can already see the diamond shape.
Connect the top corners to the bottom one, by drawing two straight diagonal lines – from top to bottom (or other way around).
Lastly draw a “triangle” in your diamond drawing. Start from the point where the diagonal line you have drawn in the previous step crosses the horizontal line. From that point, draw a line that touches the top of the diamond (line) in the center. Continue by drawing a line from that center point to the crossing of the other diagonal and horizontal line.
To give your diamond drawing some bling, you can also draw a few lines next to it, to represent the sparkle.
Congratulations! You have learned how to draw a diamond.
Now to make your diamond drawing really special, color it. When you color your diamond use different shades of blue (or other color) to give your drawing extra dimensions.
