Step 1: Draw the Tree Head

Start by drawing a big, fluffy cloud shape at the top of your paper. This will be the tree’s head! You can vary the cloud shape according to your liking and imagination!

Step 2: Draw the Tree Trunk

Next, draw a long line coming down from the tree’s head. Draw the shape like a rectangle but keep the end a little thicker. This is the trunk, like the tree’s body. Make sure it’s nice and bumpy, just like a real tree!

Step 3: Draw 3 Round Fruits on the Tree

Now it’s time to add some yummy fruits! Draw three big, round circles hanging from the branches. Here they’re apples, but you can draw oranges, or even a funny purple colored fruit– It’s all up to you !

Step 4: Outline the tree

Now, take your favorite black sketch pen and draw the outlines of the drawing. These outlines will also serve as guides when you color your tree.

Final Touches 

Let’s add some extra fun stuff! Maybe you want to draw a squirrel eating one of the fruits, or a little bird singing in the branches. Don’t forget to add some curvy lines for the bark on the trunk!

You can also color the tree to your liking. We recommend dark green color for tree leaves and brown for the tree trunk.

Congratulations, you’ve drawn a tree!
