Okay well so far today I showed you all how to draw an arctic fox, Christmas bells, mistletoe, and a waterfall. With this next tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a Christmas stocking step by step. Now for those of you that celebrate Christmas you already know what these oversized soft feeling stockings are used for. They are typically hung over the fireplace with care, or on the walls of living rooms or parlors if you don’t have a fireplace. Christmas stockings come in a wide range of colors, sizes, and textures. The most common color is a red stocking with the top fold a white color. These colors resemble Santa’s suit because as you know jolly Saint Nick wears a white and red suit and the white is usually fluffy and soft. As the custom goes, on Christmas Eve Santa comes down the chimney and fills the stockings with toys, books, candy, teddy bears, and other fun and exciting things that children and even adults enjoy. I wanted to stuff my sketch of a Christmas stocking with a bunch of presents and candy. So what I did was draw a teddy bear along with a candy cane and two Christmas gifts. I think that this drawing came out super cute and I know you will all love this drawing lesson as much as I did. This tutorial will show you how to draw a Christmas stocking step by step. The instructions are easy to read and the steps are simple to follow which makes learning how to draw this cartoon looking Christmas stocking fun and easy. Stay tuned fellas because I will be back with two more drawing tutorials in a bit.

How to Draw a Christmas Stocking

how to draw a christmas stocking step 1

STEP 1.

In this first step you will start out by drawing the guidelines and shapes that will make a frame of the Christmas stocking. First draw a long vertical line down the middle and then two horizontal lines, one on the top and one on the bottom as shown. You will then add the puffy white fold line and then the beginning shape of the candy cane. Draw out the slightly arched back lining of the stocking and then move onto step two.

In this next step you will finish the lining shape of the stocking and then finish the shape of the fold. Thicken the candy cane and then start the shaping or outline of the teddy bear. You will add the box shape of the present on the left.

STEP 3.

As you can see your Christmas stocking is coming out beautifully. Draw a cute bow on the tops of both gifts and then thicken the shape of the candy cane some more. You will then give the teddy bear a circle for the nose and then some arms. Make arched lines for the toe and heel of the stocking as shown.

Well you have made it to your last drawing step and what you will do now is add the ribbon going in a vertical line and then the eyes, ears, nose and mouth of the teddy bear. Put strips on the candy cane and then add the stitches to the toe and heel of the stocking. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
