As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, the opening bars of Mariah Carey begin to pop up all across the world… and the most wonderful time of year infiltrates every conversation, shopping decision, and payday! Christmas is around the corner, so let’s start getting prepared with a super stunning Christmas candle!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin with a pink pen, and draw a small circle in the center of your page, around an inch from the bottom. Fill this in completely with the pink.
Take a brown pen, and repeat this with another shape to the right of the first.
Repeat the process a third time with a red pen…
Before using a green pen to add a long, thin line emerging from the red and brown circles, heading up towards the top right-hand corner of the page. Add smaller, slightly curved lines emerging from this on either side to create festive foliage.
Repeat this shape, this time emerging from the right of the brown circle.
Add another sprig to the left of the pink circle…
And a few stray strands peeking out from the top of the red.
Take a light green pen, and add an outline around the right-hand sprig, filling this in as you go.
Take a yellow-green pen, and repeat this process on the top sprig…
As well as those remaining.
Now use a light green pen to add the outline shape to the space between the left sprig, and the one beside it.
Use the green pen to fill in the inside space…
And shade this in using a light green pen.
Now, take a red pen and ruler, and add two vertical lines heading up from the edges towards the top of the page. In the center of these, add two orange lines.
Use the red pen to connect the lines together on both sides, and fill in the center, creating two tall red pillars. Connect the tops with a slightly wavy line.
Use a light orange pen to repeat this with the central lines…
And use a brown pen to add a flame shape to the left-hand pillar, filling this in to create a solid shape.
Use an orange pen to add a flame to the central pillar…
And a red pen for the one on the right.
Now, use the orange pen to add another layer to the flame of the red candles…
Before using the light orange pen to do the same on the central candle.
Grab a yellow pen, and add another layer to each flame.
Next, use a brown pen to draw a cross, with a vertical line through the center, to the right of the candles.
Use an orange pen to add a small circle beneath this, and then another star shape to the left of the candle collection.
Repeat this with a red pen, and add a small red circle to the left of the star.
And there we have it – the season has finally arrived. Take some time to consider the true meaning of Christmas, and to plan the fun which is just around the corner.
