“Tis the season to be jolly”. That is one of my favorite songs that I love singing to when the holidays draw near. This first lesson is going to show you "how to draw bells", step by step. Christmas bells are so pretty and I love the sounds they make when the brass crashes against a door, or when they collapse on each other. Bells are one of the main objects associated with Christmas because they are used on almost every decoration for this season. Santa Claus can be heard jingling his bells with cheer when he leaves the roof tops of homes around the world. His reindeer are also hooked up with a strand of bells so they can can be heard soaring through the night winter skies. I do have another set of pretty bells in the Christmas section of the seasonal category that you can check out too. I thought it would be nice to draw a newer version of bells because the ones I drew a year ago are a bit fuzzy. The coloring for both tutorials is awesome, and I think you guys will love learning “how to draw bells”. Well that does it for this bell lesson, I will be back later with more interesting stuff for you all to draw and learn from. Peace out and happy drawing people, and remember Santa Claus is coming to town soon, so you better watch out, and you better not pout!

How to Draw Bells

how to draw bells step 1

STEP 1.

Okay let's start the day by drawing some pretty bells. First draw the two circle shapes you see here that will later be used for the top of the bells. You will then add the bell shape for the right bell, and then draw smaller circle shapes above the bells for the soldered on rings that all bells have. You will then draw the shape and design of the bow.

Okay, now you will start sketching out the shape, design and style of the pretty bow that is tied to the bells. Once that is done you can start drawing the top shape of the bells as you see here. All bells have narrow tops, but then widen as the shape progresses.
