How to Draw a Rose – Step by Step Guide for Kids and Beginners

Rose Directed Drawing

What you’ll need:

  • Our rose-directed drawing template (available at the end of the tutorial)
  • Sheet of paper and a printer
  • Your favorite drawing marker or pencil
  • Coloring supplies if you want to add color to your drawing

Step 1:

Begin by drawing an oval shape, which will serve as the base of your rose. Remember, it doesn’t need to be perfect as nature is full of imperfections. No matter how you draw it, your rose will look great.

Start by Drawing an Oval

Step 2:

Inside the oval, draw a small spiral. The direction and number of turns in the spiral are not important.

Draw a Spiral Inside the Oval

Step 3:

Surround the spiral with a heart shape. Begin at the top with the heart cleft touching the oval shape. The sides of the heart don’t need to be symmetrical, so don’t worry about making them identical.

You can let other parts of the heart touch the oval shape, but it’s not necessary.

Draw a Heart Around the Spiral

Step 4:

Draw a curvy line that follows the shape of the heart. Start at the top and create a pointy (V) shape that extends to the bottom of the heart.

Follow the Heart Shape

Step 5:

Repeat the previous step on the other side of the heart, but this time without the pointy tip. Connect this line to the previous shape so that they intersect.

And on the Other Side

Step 6:

Now, draw a U shape at the top of the rose. You can make it slightly curvy. At this point, you should start to see the blossom of your rose taking shape.

Forming the Blossom

Step 7:

Add a few more details to your drawing. Draw a curved line from the tip of the V shape to the bottom of the blossom. Additionally, draw two lines connecting the oval shape to the heart shape if they don’t already touch.

Add a Few Details

Step 8:

Draw a few sepals under the flower to provide additional detail and realism.


Step 9:

Complete your rose drawing by adding a stem and a leaf.
