How to draw a beautiful snowflake step by step

During the time when a small drop of water is flying from the sky to the ground, the frost gives it a fantastic shape. Frost is like a jeweler, it makes the smallest details, turning the snowflake into a work of art. There are no snowflakes of the same shape on our planet. Each of them is original and beautiful in its own way.

Everyone can do such a small miracle on their own. It’s easy to do it on a sheet of paper with a help of pencil. Our step-by-step instruction will show you how to draw a snowflake. The drawing will be of not high level of difficulty. Take a pencil and start. The result will pleasantly surprise even those who have no drawing skills. Good luck!

You need:
1

Center

Draw a small circle in the middle of your paper’s sheet. This will be the center of our creative product. It is better to use a compass to make our image perfectly beautiful.

Square

Snowflake’s form

The only common feature of all snowflakes is a round form. Draw a circle, fix the needle of your compass at the central point. The size of the circle mustn’t go beyond your square.
