Line Art Ornament Design Step-by-Step

Below you will find step by step images on how to create this design. There is a full video tutorial after if you are looking for more details or tips!

Start by tracing something circle on your stone. Make sure to leave enough space at the top to add on your hook. Create curved lines across your ornament. If your lines become uneven you can thicken the line to adjust it slightly.

Create designs on each of your lines. You can do so many different things you can see a few ideas above and below on the tree. Then fill in your designs with your desired color. I stuck to a single color for each rock, but you can mix it up if you like!

Line Art Christmas Tree Design Step-by-Step

To create our lined tree design we placed our star down first, then added our bottom, and the sides of the tree. Use a straight edge to assist in the sides of your design. Add arches from one side to the other. You can space these apart as much or as little as you like!
