How to Make


1. Before drawing on the crate, draw some ideas and designs onto a piece of paper to see what works best.


2. For the design I created, draw a thick white line on each side of the crate. This is to create the start of the Christmas scene, a.k.a a wintery hill.


3. From this, start to draw different trees along the top of the hill. Draw lots of different trees – making some bigger, smaller, outlines, patterned etc.

Helpful Hint: Draw the trees in pencil before using anything permanent as this will create a guide for you to follow.

4. Finish the design by drawing snow drops around the whole of the crate and fill in the wintery hill with a thicker posca pen.
