Some pretty ornament drawing ideas can happen with just the power of lines and patterns. It uses the technique that doesn’t draw the outside edge of the ornaments, it just implies it by lining up all the ends to fill the shape.

The easy way to create this look is just to draw a very light and very temporary pencil line, fill it with pretty marker patterns, and then erase.

I recommend this project as shown here for maybe grades 3 and up. They will more likely appreciate the subtle look that happens when you follow this process of not tracing the edge of the ornament.

If you want to try this with younger students, they would probably be happier to just draw the ornament outline and trace it with marker before filling it with patterns. It’s still very pretty and makes for a lovely holiday card.

  • Drawing Paper. Don’t substitute it with copy paper or construction paper. The surface will get fuzzy, erasing might cause holes, and the colors will generally not look as bright.
  • Stabilo Markers. This brand has the very sturdy thin tips that are needed to make lots of fine lines. They may be too delicate for early elementary students, but older will enjoy the precision and color that they offer.
