Cute Snowflake Pattern
I had fun with these snowflakes, and even decided to create a repeated pattern (patterns is something I am working on right now, so expect to see more cute patterns!).
You can see how a doodle can easily turn into a fabric design, an iPhone cover or a wallpaper.
Now, let’s draw!
Here is the step-by-step tutorial to go along with the video. You can download it and print it. Or you can save it to your Pinterest board and share with friends.
Hi there, I am Tatyana Deniz and I’m here to teach you how to draw using the cute and simple style of “Kawaii”. And to give you the skills you need to finally start that creative business, even if you don’t think you are creative or you’re a complete beginner.
I’m using a black felt tip pen (Copic Multiliner, 0.5 size). But you can use any marker or pen that you like.
Here I’ll show you how to draw simple and cute doodle snowflake 5 different ways.
Snowflake 1[01:40] – So let’s start with a basic snowflake. It has six points. We’ll draw a vertical line and then find where the center is and add two more lines. Kind of like a pizza – imagine you’re slicing a pizza pie. Here is one… And here’s the other one. It doesn’t need to be exactly precise. It’s a doodle snowflake, so it’ll look cute anyway.
And then let’s add some balls on the tips to make it cute and playful.
Now, snowflakes usually have little icicles. So let’s add a few here.
This is a really simple and cute snowflake. You can use it for greeting cards. You can put it in your bullet journal. I know when I sign a birthday card or a note, I like to draw a little special personal decorative elements and that makes it really sweet.
Snowflake 2[03:14] – Second type of snowflake will be a little bit more complicated. We’ll add a center decoration to it.
So again, draw a line and find the center. Slice you pizza pie into six pieces.
And by the way, you can draw your snowflakes as four-pointed or eight-pointed.
So let’s add decorative element in the center. They look like little V-shapes. And then you can go ahead and add the icicles again.
Notice that the bottom icicle part is a little bit bigger and the top icicle is a little bit smaller.
Snowflake 3[04:12] – Now let’s do one a little bit more stylized.
So again, draw a six-pointed base. And now imagine there is a circle that goes around the tips. We are going to draw upside-down V shapes to indicate a crystal, that will go up all the way to where the edge of the circle would be, if you can imagine it.
Let’s add little balls on the tips. Maybe they are little icicles. Or water drops… In any case, they look really cute.
And if you like, you can even color them in and make them more stylized. Also, if you want, you can add more decorative elements in the center.
Snowflake 4[05:42] – For the fourth one, we going to do something crazy. This is going to “do your head in”. Well, it does for me.
But it’s really fun. Check this out!
So here is the six-pointed base.
Add the circles on the tips, so you know what are your main axis. It’s kind of like we did the other icicles, but we’re going to connect them all the way. You are going to continue the icicle line until it becomes an icicle for the next one.
And then do it again.
So it’s like you’re building this criss-cross pattern. Like a visual puzzle.
It’s probably really good for your brain. 🙂 Wow!
Snowflake 5[06:38] – For the fifth one, let’s do my favorite kind. A little more decorative, and a little more complicated.
Let’s draw a six-pointed base. And instead of putting circles on a tips, we’ll put little rhombus-shapes. So make a little V, and another V. It’s like a pointed crystal.
And then for the center, instead of making a pointed shape, just make it circle (like a flower). And then we can add icicles.
Again, you can really be playful here. And this is a great thing to draw with kids.
Or if you’re bored in a meeting 😉 and you just need to pass the time… Look, you’re doing something creative!
