If you’re not sure how to draw a Christmas tree, this post is for you; a tutorial on how to draw a Christmas tree for beginners.
Christmas Tree Bullet Journal Ideas
Before learning how to draw a Christmas tree, here are some ideas for including a Christmas tree in your bullet journal:
- Christmas tree cover page design for December.
- As doodles in your December weekly spreads.
- On a Christmas doodles page.
- Habit or Mood Christmas tree Tracker. You can create trackers (such as habit trackers, mood trackers, etc) and include Christmas tree doodles in your designs; e.g you can draw 31 trees on a page for a mood tracker for December, and add different colours for different moods. You can use different shades of green for the trees to mean different moods, or add baubles on the trees, and use different colous for different moods (e.g yellow Christmas baubles for happy, red for angry, blue for sad, etc).
- Alongside quotes about Christmas, or on a dedicated quote page.

Christmas Tree Drawing Tutorials Step by Step
Below are the step by step tutorials on how to draw different Christmas trees.
The first is how to draw a simple Christmas tree:
How to Draw a Christmas Tree for Beginners
Step 1: Using a pencil, draw an upright triangle. Add a small circle at the top (this is where your star at the top of the tree will go), and a small, thin rectangle at the bottom (to mark out the trunk).
Step 2: Split your triangle into 3 sections by drawing 2 horizontal pencil lines across your tree.
Step 3: Using a fineliner pen, draw the outline of your tree. Draw a vertical line at a slightly outward angle, then bring it in slightly. Repeat this for each section of the triangle, with the line getting wider toward the bottom.
Step 4: Draw a fineliner star at the top of the tree (on top of the small pencil circle that was marked out previously), and a trunk in a pot underneath the tree (where the pencil rectangle was previously drawn).
Step 5: Rub out your pencil markings, and add some fineliner details. These can include circles for baubles, and tinsel draped across the tree.
Step 6: Add some colour to your tree, and you’re done!
Below is a recap showing how to draw a Christmas tree step by step:

Here is another tutorial on how to draw a different style Christmas tree doodle.
I’ve listed this as not for beginners, as it is slightly more complex than the previous tutorial.
Step 1: Using a pencil, draw an upright triangle. Add a small circle at the top to mark where the star on the top of the tree will go, and a small, thin rectangle at the bottom to mark out the tree trunk.
Step 2: Using a fineliner, draw small triangles along the edge of the pencil triangle.
Step 3: Using a fineliner, add some more leaves to the tree to fill in the gaps.
Step 4: Draw a small star in fineliner at the top, and a fineliner tree trunk at the bottom.
Step 5: Rub out the pencil markings and add some fineliner circles for baubles.
Step 6: Add colour, and your Christmas tree is complete!
