Hand lettering is one of my favorite ways to create. Not only does it encompass different ways to write, it also includes doodles and embellishments to help turn words into art! These doodles are perfect for using on envelopes, gift tags, wall signs, calendars, journals, planners, and more. All you need is a pencil and eraser, a fine tip black marker, and your favorite colored pencils, crayons, or markers to color them in. Or, draw them digitally on your iPad in the Procreate app!
Previously, I shared 5 easy fall doodles that include a pumpkin, candy corn, pie, an acorn, and a very simple leaf. You can find those tutorials here. I also shared a fun Pumpkin Spice Latte/warm drink doodle with a few variations that’s perfect for this time of year. Today, I want to give you five more fall doodles that will have you feeling all those warm seasonal vibes. Ready? Let’s get started! I recommend sketching the shapes in pencil first, then tracing with a black marker.
Start with a center line, then add three “v” shapes going down the stem. These will be the leaf’s veins. Outline the shape of the leaf, drawing bumps around the end of each vein. Finish your doodle by adding a fun fall color!
Start with a center line, then draw a pointed oval shape at the top. For the next layer, draw a “u” shape and connect the sides to the oval shape. Repeat this step three more times. connecting each new layer to the one before it. To make your leaf more realistic, let some of the layers be wider than others. Color in the spaces with red, orange, yellow, and/or brown.
The first part of the sunflower you’ll draw is the center. Sketch an oval, then draw a series of pointed petal shapes around it. 10-12 petals is usually a good number. Add a stem and a leaf, as well as some dots in the center for detail. Color in your sunflower using your favorite markers, pencils, or crayons.
PRO TIP: Rather than a drawing a totally straight stem, remember that these are heavy flowers! They get their name because bow their heads when the sun is down, then lift them to the sun during the day. A stem that curves slightly as you reach the flower’s bloom looks much more realistic.
Start with a center vertical line and draw about 5 lines branching off from it. Then, draw one or two more lines coming off these branches. Add a circle shape at the end of each line. Let your circles vary a bit in size, just like real berries would. A tiny dark spot indicates the bottom of each berry. Color them in different shades of red.
Start your sketch by drawing an oblong shape that’s thinner at the top than the bottom. Add a stem and a few curving vertical lines inside the main part of the squash that follow its basic shape. I did one on each side and one slightly to the right of the center. A few dots and short lines add even more detail, and so does color!
I hope you enjoy these five new fall doodles! They’re fun to use individually or together, and they add a festive seasonal touch to your projects. I’d love to see how yours turn out and how you use them! Be sure to share your projects in the Amy Latta & Friends Facebook Group, and don’t forget to check out these other fall doodle posts:
