How to Draw a Cartoon Flower

Today I want to show you how you can draw a simple cartoon flower 🌼 in a flower pot. Drawing the petals so that they are evenly distributed can be tricky, so I did them in slightly different way to see if it makes it a little easier. I tried to make today’s drawing tutorial simple enough for kids in pre-k and kindergarten, as well as for older kids and adults just getting started with drawing. Enjoy! 😁 – Patrick O.

In this video tutorial 🎬 I will show you how to draw a simple flower in a flower pot with easy-to-follow steps using simple strokes and shapes. If you would like to go at your own pace, the instructions are repeated below using animated GIFs.

Follow these animated step-by-step instructions that make a cartoon flower drawing easy:

  1. Start by drawing the center of the flower. Simply draw a small circle near the top of the paper..
  2. Then start drawing the petals of the cartoon flower. Draw lines of similar length out from the circle so that it looks like a sun.
  3. Finish drawing the petals of the cartoon flower. This is done by drawing arcs to connect the “rays” of the sun to each other, completing the flower’s petals.
  4. Next draw the cartoon flower’s stem. Draw two lines, close together, down from the bottom of the flower that stop at the same point.
  5. Start drawing the flower pot. Below the stem, draw a long, thin rectangle for the top rim of the flower pot.
  6. Finish drawing the flower pot. Draw two slightly angled lines down from the rim and connect them with a straight line to create the bottom of the flower pot.
  7. Finally add some leaves to the cartoon flower. Draw a bent line up from the bottom of the stem, and then another bent line back to create a leaf. Repeat on the other side.

That’s it. Great job! 👏
