Here are a few basics, however, to give you that boost of confidence to try out the doodles in this post.
How To Doodle
Let me let you in on a little secret: creativity is like flexing a muscle. The more you train and exercise it, the stronger it gets. And doodling? That’s your gym workout for your creative muscle.
Now, I won’t sugarcoat it – the beginning can be tough. Your first few sketches might look more like a toddler’s scribbles than a Picasso masterpiece. And that’s okay! Remember, every expert was once a beginner. It’s like learning to ride a bike or bake a cake, it takes practice and a few falls (or burnt cakes) along the way.
Being an adult and starting something new can feel daunting, especially when we’re not immediately good at it. That fear of failure often stops us from trying out new things, like doodling. But stick to the path, embrace the squiggly lines, and before you know it, you’ll be doodling like a pro!
Here’s a golden nugget to boost your doodling journey: every doodle starts with simple shapes. That’s right, circles, squares, triangles – they’re all the building blocks of your doodle universe. Start seeing the world as a canvas filled with these basic shapes just waiting to be transformed into doodles.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? And it really is! The best way to put this into practice is by following step-by-step tutorials like the ones we’re about to dive into. They’ll guide you, inspire you, and keep your motivation alive, helping you master the art of doodling.

Before we start doodling, you’ll need some supplies. Of course, you can use the things you already have, but if you want something special, I’ve got you covered.
Here are some of my favorite doodling supplies.
- Notepad. You’ll need some paper to doodle, and I prefer a dot grid since it helps keep the doodles straight. Plus, especially if you want to add color to your doodles, you’ll want something with smooth paper; otherwise, your ma§rkers can be damaged. I recommend Rhodia Notepad.
- Pencil & eraser. For the pencil, I really recommend getting the one with a comfortable grip since you’ll probably spend a lot of time using it. My top choice is the Pilot Dr. Grip pencil. And for an eraser, get something that won’t leave any traces behind, like this Sakura Foam Eraser.
- Fineliners. These are the blood of your Bullet Journal. But also are wonderful for doodling. The black lines are perfect to outline your doodles, and the pen thickness variety will definitely allow you to make your doodles stand out even more. My choice for these are Sakura Pigma Micron.
- Markers. If color is your thing, you’ll want some markers, and I recommend Crayola Super Tips, since they come in so many colors and are pretty affordable. But I also really love Tombow Twin Tone and Zebra Mildliners for the special colors they offer.
- Colorful Pens. Another option if you want your doodles to be colorful. Tons of different pens you can use, but I would recommend Staedtler Triplus Fineliners or Sakura Gelly Roll, the latter being also amazing for working on black paper.
With all the supplies at ready it’s time to cozy up and start doodling!

Trust me, by the end of it, you’ll be doodling up a storm and having a blast while doing it!
How To Doodle Christmas Bells
We’re starting with a Christmas doodle, of course. After all, the holiday season is the biggest event right at the beginning of winter.
And you definitely can style them with different plants so it’d fit different seasons and holidays.
How To Doodle A Cup Of Hot Cocoa
Hot cocoa is probably the most winter-type drink, so I definitely had to add this doodle here.
And it could actually work as a hot cup of coffee if that is more your thing.
How To Doodle A Candle
Candles are always a welcome item, I have a candle burning all the time I work, no matter the season. But there is something extra cozy about a candle in winter.
And the good thing about this doodle is that you get to style it however you want. I added a rose here, but you can add a pine tree to make it more winter-themed.
How To Doodle A Snowman
Of course, what kind of winter do you have without a snowman? Well, warm winters like here in Portugal, but still, a snowman is a staple of winter, so we’re doing this doodle!
Again again, you can play around with it so much by adding different types of hats or maybe a scarf.
How To Doodle Books And Tea
There is a special place in my heart for reading in winter, snug under a warm blanket with a cup of boiling hot tea.
That’s why I wanted to include this doodle here; for me, this is quintessential winter when it’s too cold to do things outside, and the best time is spent at home in imaginary worlds.
How To Doodle A Penguin
When talking about winter, it has a lot to do with winter animals. Well, they are just animals but more associated with winter and cold, like penguins.
As you can see, they are very easy to doodle, and they would make a lovely theme for your Bullet Journal!
How To Doodle Cozy Socks
Last but not least is a doodle of a pair of cozy socks. They are super easy to doodle, and you can play around with patterns and colors to create something unique and match your style.
