Flowers add cheerfulness wherever they grow - or wherever they are drawn. This is especially so when they also wear smiling faces.

Dancing, smiling flowers have been a common part of many cartoons for decades. A famous example of this is the 1932 "Silly Symphonies: Flowers and Trees" cartoon produced by Walt Disney. Today, such flowers often grace sunny window sills in the form of solar powered, plastic "dancing flowers."

Would you like to be able to draw your own smiling, happy flower? Now you can, using this simple, easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial. All you need is a piece of paper and some drawing tools, such as a pencil, pen, colored pencils, crayons, or markers.

Each step in this guide is illustrated. Note that the new markings in each step are highlighted in blue. Sketch your lines lightly at first, as you will be required to erase some of the guide lines that you draw early on.

In just a few easy steps, you will have your own smiling cartoon flowers to brighten your day.

Step-by-Step Instructions
for Drawing Cartoon Flowers

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 1

Begin by drawing a long, wavy line.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 2

Draw another wavy line parallel to the first. The lines should be closer to one another at the top than at the bottom. This forms the main stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 3

Draw one curved line extending from each side of the stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 4

Draw another curved line parallel to each of the curved lines you just drew. These lines form secondary stems.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 5

Draw a circle above the tip of the left secondary stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 6

Draw five petals around the circle. Each petal will consist of a curved line in the shape of a very rounded "M." The bottom two petals should connect the flower to its stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 7

Draw a circle above the main stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 8

Draw five "M" shapped petals around the circle. The bottom petals will connect this flower to the main stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 9

Draw a circle above the right secondary stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 10

Draw five loosely "M" shaped petals around the circle. The bottom two petals will connect the flower to its stem.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 11

Now, you will add detail to the petals. Beginning with the flower on the left, add a wavy line to the interior of each petal. Each line should extend from the flower's circle center, form three humps, then attach to the center once more.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 12

Repeat this process to add detail to the center flower's petals.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 13

Repeat the process to add detail to the petals of right flower, again using five wavy lines.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 14

Extend a short, curved line from each side of the center flower's stem. Draw similar lines from the left side of the left secondary stem, and the right side of the right secondary stem. These lines will form the veins of leaves.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 15

Outline the leaves using two curved lines each. The lines should extend from the stem and come together to form a point with the leaf vein line.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 16

Draw the grass in which your flower is growing. To draw grass, use short, curved lines that come together in a point, both at their base and at their tip. The result will resemble connected curving triangles with no base line.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 17

Complete the mound of grass by connecting the far sides with a straight line. Add detail to the veins of the leaves by drawing one to two short, slightly curving lines extending from both sides of each leaf vein.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 18

Now, you will add faces to your flowers. Within the center circle of each flower, draw two smaller circles for eyes. Below the eyes, form a smiling mouth by drawing a "U" shaped line. Draw a short line perpendicular to each end of the "U" shaped line.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 19

Within each eye circle, draw a smaller circle. You can determine the direction in which the flower appears to be looking by drawing this small circle on that side of the eye. Draw a tiny circle within each small circle. Shade the small circle.

How to Draw Cartoon Flowers Step: 20

Complete your sketch by coloring your flowers. Make them any color you want - have fun!
