Well this is going to be my last installment of my series of Christmas related lessons. I already submitted some awesome ornaments, and tutorial on how to draw Santa's hat. I will now be giving you a super easy lesson that teaches you “how to draw holly step by step”. Holly is something that is used during the Christmas season to decorate wreaths, doors, and even decorate food such as fruit cakes and pies. I always used to get holly mixed up with mistletoe because the two seem very similar in appearance. Drawing holly is going to be easy because the entire piece of plant is made up of three leaves, and a few holly berries. Did you know that holly berries are moderately toxic to people and or humans? It's true, consumption of holly can be hazardous to your health if consumed by you or me. But for birds, holly berries are an essential part in their daily diet. Holly comes in all different forms including colors. There is white, green and black colored holly, and they are all used for different purposes. I like the way that this holly tutorial came out because it is so simple and pretty at the same time. I really do think that you will enjoy learning "how to draw holly" step by step. It is the one piece of plant that adds a special touch to Christmas. Maybe next time I will do a tutorial on how to draw a poinsettia, who knows what the future holds on the best drawing tutorial site in the word. I will leave you once again only to return later. Peace out me amigos and happy holiday drawing!
