Step By Step Instructions For How To Draw A Santa Hat
Step 1. Create The Overall Shape Of Santa’s Hat
First, draw a triangle that is taller than it is wide.
Step 2. Form The Shape For The Bottom Of The Hat
Now draw a big curved line extending just a little past the horizontal line at the bottom of the triangle.
Step 3. Add Sides To The Bottom Fold Of The Hat
Close off the fur section of the hat with two lines that both curve inward a little, with the top curving out wider than the bottom.
Step 4. Create The Bend For Santa’s Hat
Draw a line that starts from the right side and starts to bend toward the left. This line is about ⅓ of the way down the hat.
Carry the line past the left side of the hat. This line continues out about as far as the width of the hat is at that point.
Step 5. Add The Tip Of The Hat
Draw two diagonal lines that point slightly away from the hat from the left side of the line you just drew.
The inner diagonal line stops short, where you draw a line that connects the diagonal line to the hat.
Step 6. Draw The Pom Pom On Santa’s Hat
For this next step, draw Santa’s pom pom. Draw a circle over the top and center it with the tip at the halfway point.
Now, draw a short vertical line at the bottom part of the outside fold and then a horizontal line across, like an l-shape.
Step 7. Add Shape To The Christmas Hat
First, erase the bottom tip of the hat from the center of the pom pom.
Now draw two curves on the sides of the hat to give it a natural shape.
The curves start at the top of the hat’s fold and end where the bend begins.
Step 8. Add Faux Fur To The Hat
First erase all the inside lines for the main structure of the hat, but leave the pom pom circle and the bottom fold lne.
Now add the small details to Santa’s winter hat.
To make the white fur, add small wavy lines across the bottom of the hat and also around the pom pom.
