Step by Step Christmas Lights Drawing Instructions
Version 1 – How to Draw Simple Christmas Lights
This is the easiest way to draw Christmas lights.
Start by drawing a simple curved line.
Draw small rectangles on the line, they should be evenly spaced to some extent.
Draw light bulbs. If you want more details you can also draw a simple line inside the rectangle to make the cap look a bit more realistic.
Make it glow! This step is optional, but it adds extra magic. Draw short lines steaming from close to the tip of the lightbulb.
If you want to make a longer light chain, start from step one again, drawing another curve starting from the end of the first one.
The last thing to do is to color in the Christmas lights.
Version 2 – How to Draw Wavy Xmas Lights
Draw a wavy line.
Draw small rectangles on top of each up wave and under each down wave.
Draw light bulbs on every rectangle.
It’s time to make the lights glow brightly – add lines around each bulb.
Color your drawing in festive colors.
Version 3 – How to Draw Christmas Light Bulbs
Draw a curved line with loops. Just let your hand guide you, however it ends up looking it’s OK.
Look at the shape you made and space out the rectangles. Less is more is the rule here as you can always add additional light bulbs later on.
As you place the rectangles, think about where the light bulb will be so that you don’t draw them to close to one another.
Draw light bulbs.
Make them sparkle and glow by adding small lines around each of the lightbulbs.
Color in festive colors.
