How to Draw a Diamond Step 1 Start with a Straight Line

Step 1 is super easy, you just need to draw a straight line from left to right about a third of the way down your page as shown in the picture. This is going to be the beginning of the top of the diamond.

How to Draw a Diamond Step 6 Draw a Last Triangle Inside the Trapezium Top

We are now going to make one last triangle inside your diamond inside the ‘trapezium’ shape at the top middle of your diamond, as the picture shows. Start at the corner of this trapezium shape and draw another diagonal line which will end in the middle of the straight line you drew in Step 4. Repeat this from the other corner of the trapezium shape, again finishing in the middle of the straight line at the very top of your diamond.

Now you can shade or colour in your diamond. Try to think of where the light source would be in your picture to capture the shadows and sparkles. We have imagined the light source coming from the top left of the page, and shaded it in accordingly.

Add some extra sparkle if you like! 

Congratulations! You have now drawn a lovely diamond! Check the video below for the whole process!
