# How to draw a snowflake Step by Step

How to draw a snowflake easy with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy drawing tutorial for beginners and kids.

## You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

### Step 1

Start by drawing two long, parallel, vertical lines. These lines will form the central axis of the snowflake.

### Step 2

Draw a set of parallel long, straight lines, cutting the first line at a diagonal angle. These lines form the additional arms of the snowflake.

### Step 3

Draw a third set of long, straight, parallel lines that intersect at the same point where the different lines meet. Your snowflake will now have six arms, all equally spaced.

### Step 4

Draw a small hexagon in the middle of the snowflake, using six lines. The points of the hexagon should be aligned with the arms of the snowflake.

### Step 5

Delete guide lines from inside hexagons.

### Step 6

Draw a small circle around the end of each arm of the snowflake.

### Step 7

On each snowflake arm, extend two sets of parallel lines at diagonal angles to the arm. Surround the shape with a small curve at each end. The resulting image will look like a boomerang. Repeat this process until a shape has been drawn on each arm.

### Step 8

Between the boomerang and the small circle on each snowflake arm, draw another smaller boomerang. Use two sets of parallel, parallel and two short, curved lines for each suit. Repeat this process on each arm of the snowflake.

### Step 9

Clear guides from snowflakes.

### Step 10

Snow is white of course, but the transparent ice crystals form a single snowflake that can reflect all colors of a rainbow. Our example is shown in blue.
