Fascinating Snowflake Facts

Learn how to create snowflake doodle easily

To create an authentic snowflake doodle, it’s crucial to understand that snowflakes have a distinct six-sided structure. Every snowflake you’ll encounter has either six sides or points, thanks to the hexagonal arrangement of water molecules in ice crystals. When water molecules bond together and freeze, they form a unique shape with six points or sides. So, if you want to draw a realistic-looking snowflake, remember to depict it with six points. The beauty of snowflakes lies in their individuality, as no two snowflakes are alike. This means your snowflake drawings can be as intricate or as simple as you prefer!

Essential Doodling Supplies

In this tutorial, I’ve used the following supplies:

  • Paper, sketchbook, or your bullet journal
  • My personal favorite drawing pens: Sakura Pigma Micron

For an extra touch of fun, you can even use glitter pens to make your snowflake doodles shimmer!

Step-by-Step Guide: How to Draw a Snowflake

To create your very own snowflake doodles, let’s start with the basic structure of six points. Draw lines that cross in the middle to ensure your snowflake has those six points. However, don’t feel confined by rigid rules. If it’s easier for you to draw snowflakes with eight sides, go ahead and do it! In fact, my 8-year-old daughter saw my doodles and started creating her versions, most of which have eight sides. And let me tell you, they’re absolutely brilliant!

For symmetrical snowflakes, I recommend beginning with two lines that form an “X.” Then, add another line through the center to make all six sides match perfectly. Before adding intricate details to your snowflake, take some time to practice the basic structure. Below, I’ve provided step-by-step tutorials on how to make various snowflake designs.
