How To Draw Christmas Lights: Easy Step By Step Tutorial
We’ve put together the best way to learn how to draw Christmas lights in just a few easy steps, which are perfect for decorating Christmas cards and getting you in the holiday spirit. Trust me, this is one of the easiest drawing tutorials you’ll ever come across.
Step 1: Draw A Tangled Line
Make them as large or as small as you want, and don’t worry about the level of detail.
Step 2: Draw The Light Bulbs
To make this drawing look better, start by drawing a wavy tangled line and then drawing the light bulbs, which you can also draw on the tangled lines.
Step 3: Add Details
You don’t have to add this detail unless you want to; simply draw at least three petal shapes around the light bulbs to make it appear as if the Christmas lights are on and shining brightly.
Step 4: Color The Drawing
When coloring them, I used a brush pen, but you could also use a crayon, color pencil, or even paint them. Use bright colors like red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and pink.
Step 1: Draw Three Curves
Joining three different pieces of paper in a row and then drawing small squares on either side of each line is the technique.
Step 2: Add The Light Bulbs
Take a look at the Domesday Project’s fun tutorial on how to draw flower petals if you want to see how petals look.
Step 1: Draw The Lines
Start by drawing a slightly curved line at an angle, then parallel lines going down, and finally small black squares on each of the lines, making sure to leave some space between them.
Step 2: Attach The Light Bulbs
Then, using coloured pencils, draw a small circle around each of the little black squares in the shape of a globe to make the light bulbs.
Step 3: Color The Light Bulbs
You get to “bring your design and creation to life,” as it were, and it certainly makes a plain drawing stand out when colored in with bright and bold colors, as Jules did here.

What is drawing with light?
Photographic techniques of moving a light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or space, or to shine light at the camera to ‘draw,’ or by moving the camera itself, are referred to as light painting, painting with light, light drawing, or light art performance photography.
How do you paint Christmas lights?
How to Decorate Christmas Light Bulbs with Paint
- Remove the light bulb caps from a string of Christmas lights.
