The Narrated 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: Start the Christmas wreath by first drawing a bow at the top of the page using simple shapes and curved lines. The knot of the bow is made up of a small, rectangular shape. The sides of the bow should be bigger and they should be made up of long, curved lines.
Step 2: Add two lines at the top of the bow to emphasize the ribbon folding over. On the sides of the knot, draw a couple of short lines for wrinkles on the ribbon. Coming out of the bottom of the knot, draw two thick, long, wavy shapes for the ends of the bow's ribbon.
Step 3: Below the bow, draw a circle for the inner edge of the Christmas wreath. Use wavy lines as you draw the circle to represent the leafy texture of the wreath. It's okay if the circle isn't perfect. Instead pay attention to the size. It should be about as big as the outer section of the bow.
Step 4: On top of the bow, draw an angled line for more of the ribbon that's holding the wreath together. Add a smaller line between the ends of the bow's ribbon. Under the circle for the wreath's inner edge, draw a thick shape for more of the ribbon. The shape should be similar to a curved rectangle. The taller you make this rectangle, the thicker the wreath will be.
Step 5: On the sides of the Christmas wreath's inner circle, draw two more shapes similar to the one in the previous step for more of the ribbon. Again, these shapes should be similar to curved rectangles. Make them as wide as the shape on the bottom but turn them sideways. Try to keep these shapes the same with, otherwise the shape of the wreath will be irregular.
